Even before snow began falling during the day Wednesday, this had already become one of the snowiest winters on record in southern New Jersey.

With the 3.2 inches that fell overnight at Atlantic City International Airport, this winter moved to within an inch of the highest recorded snowfall total, 46.9 in 1966-67.

National Weather Service Mount Holly meteorologist Bob Wanton said 1995-96 registered 46.4 inches. This winter, we've seen 46.0 inches.

"One more inch and we'll break the record, and we'll have no problem doing that today," Wanton said.

According to the National Weather Service, the average winter snowfall total for the airport is 13.5 inches.

After today, Baltimore, Md. and Washington, D.C. will have also set winter snowfall records.
