Blizzard of 2022 was only inches away from creating a record for the most snow fall on a single day in Boston.

With multiple blizzard warnings, cities such as New York and Boston bore the brunt of the storm, which in turn deepened to a “bomb cyclone” bringing down air pressure at high levels, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

Logan International airport reported at least 23.6 inches of snow through Saturday evening, according to the NWS, making Saturday the snowiest January day Boston ever recorded, breaking the record for the largest single-day snowfall total.

Boston’s snowfall broke the record for one day of 23.6 inches in 2003, the NWS said, and the city of Sharon, 29 kilometres south, had its highest snowfall of more than 30 inches by 9.30pm on Saturday.

The record for the calendar month, 7.3 inches in 2014, was bested by 14 inches of snow.
