CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Today's snow has moved New Hampshire up a notch in the list of all-time snowy winters, making this the snowiest winter in 135 years.

The National Weather Service says that as of 7 a.m., an inch of snow had fallen in Concord from the latest storm. That inch moved the state into third place for all-time snowfall, at 113.4 inches. It hasn't snowed this much since the winter of 1872-73.

The state needs 8.6 inches to tie the all-time record of 122 inches, set in the winter of 1873-74, and just 1.6 inches to move into second place.

It seems likely Concord will see at least 1.6 more inches. Forecasters are calling for anywhere from 3 to 7 inches more from this storm, especially in southern New Hampshire.

This season's snowfall already has broken several records, including the snowiest December, January and February — which the National Weather Service calls meteorolgical winter.
