Boston's miserable winter is now also its snowiest season going back to 1872.

The official measurement of 108.6 inches at Logan International Airport Sunday night topped a season record of 107.6 inches set in 1995-96.

The final 2.9 inches came in a snowstorm that was relatively tame after a record-setting monthly snowfall of 64.9 inches in February.

The worst previous single month was January 2005, when 43.3 inches fell.

This official winter snowfall, measured from December through February this year, was 99.4 inches. That was the snowiest for the winter period, beating 91.5 inches in 1993-94.

The season snowfall record is measured from July 1 through June 30, and takes in autumn and spring.

Forecasters note snow can still mount up this year. March 1993 had 38.9 inches, and March 1916 had 33.
