The snow started to fall this season back in October, with less than two inches. Snow totals have roughly doubled each month since then in Omaha, with February taking the top spot in February history, dating back to 1885, with 27 inches. With March already adding another inch at Eppley Airfield, Omaha is now sitting at 50.7 inches for the 2018-2019 season, which is nearly 29 inches above average to date.

With the season snow total more than double the average to date, you may be wondering where we fall in the record books. The snowiest season on record in Omaha is 67.5 inches, which was measured in 1911-1912. Looking at the rest of the list, that puts the 2018-2019 season in 11th place.

Omaha's snow is at the top of one list this year. The city has seen more snow than the other 3 official reporting areas of Valley, Lincoln, and Norfolk.

Last year, Norfolk was the highest in the region, but seems to have switched places with Omaha this winter, only picking up 26.0" so far.

These numbers are far from final though, with more snow in the forecast this week.
