BUFFALO, NY -- Another round of widespread accumulating snowfall moving in soon, will most likely put this year in the record books.

Right now the snow total in Buffalo for the season is at 81.8 inches putting us at 18th place for snowiest season so far.

All we need is another 6.6" with this next storm to bump us up to top 10!

Here is the list of the top 10 snowiest seasons through February 5th in Buffalo:
1st place set in 1977, 172.9 inches
2nd in 1978, 128.7 inches
3rd in 2001, 117.8 inches
4th in 1996, 103.7 inches
5th in 2002, 101 inches
6th in 1945, 92.9 inches
7th in 1986, 91.7 inches
8th in 1918, 91 inches
9th in 2009, 89.8 inches
10th in 1970, 88.4 inches

All we need is about 6 and a half inches with this next snow system to tie for 10th place. You may also notice we only need another 5 inches after that to tie for 6th place for snowiest season so far.

And from this next storm, snow totals should reach nearly 90 inches for the season which is already just a few inches off from what we normal get for an entire year, and it's only early February.

And the top 10 snowiest total seasons on record:

1 1976-77 199.4"
2 2000-01 158.7"
3 1977-78 154.3"
4 1995-96 141.1"
5 1983-84 132.5"
6 2001-02 132.4"
7 1909-10 126.4"
8 1957-58 124.7"
9 1944-45 120.7"
10 1969-70 120.5"

For the 1976-1977 season through February 5th we already had 172.9 inches of snow at this point.

This year Buffalo needs another 40 inches this season to make it to the all time top 10, which is feasible if we keep up our current snowfall rate.
