Anchorage breaks seasonal snowfall record

While winter is a distant memory for most Americans, it continues unabated in Anchorage, Alaska - where a new bout of precipitation this weekend helped the city break its record for seasonal snowfall, at more than 133 inches.

Some 3.4 inches of snow - and counting - had fallen as of 4 p.m. (8 p.m. ET) Saturday in Anchorage, according to the National Weather Service.

That brought the seasonal total for the city to 133.6 inches - breaking the record of 132.6 inches, set in 1954-1955.

And with snow continuing to fall into early Sunday morning, the figure promises to get even larger.
