Boston has set a record for the most snow recorded in a 30-day period, and more is on the way.

The National Weather Service said Boston had received 61.6 inches in the last 30 days by 7 a.m. Monday, breaking the record of 58.8 inches in one 30-day period ending in February 1978.

Logan International Airport had a little more than a foot by 7 a.m. from a storm that was expected to last all day and add several more inches.

The weather service reported an unofficial measurement of almost 20 inches in Weymouth and 18.5 inches in Norwell as of Monday morning.

Fitchburg, Leominster, Lunenburg and Ashby in north-central Massachusetts all had more than 13 inches.

The good news is that power outages Monday were minimal.
