If February has seemed particularly backbreaking, it's because Billings hasn't seen this much snow by the 18th of the month — ever.

Snow is piled against the trees

Snow is piled against the trees along the sidewalk on North 24th street as a crew blows snow in the neighborhood on February 19. Billings is forecasted to break its all-time single season snowfall record with another dump of snow Thursday evening.

As of Sunday night, at least 31.5 inches of snow has fallen during the month. That's a few inches short of the February record of 37 inches, and we still have 10 days left in the month.

That record February wasn't ancient history, either. It was 2014.

That February recorded 2.06 inches of moisture. By last Sunday, this month was at 1.59 inches, according to the National Weather Service. The normal amount for the month is 0.29 inches.
