PHILADELPHIA (AP) - If you think Philadelphia has had enough snow over the weekend for a whole season, you were right - exactly right.

The National Weather Service says the 22.4 inches that fell on the City of Brotherly Love on Friday and Saturday exactly matches the average snowfall for the season - 22.4 inches.

That was also the fourth-highest two-day total on record in Philadelphia, where people have been keeping track of such things since the 1870s. The greatest two-day snowfall on record was the 30.7 inches that fell on Jan. 7-8 in 1996.

In Allentown, the 31.9 inches that fell Friday and Saturday obliterated the 1996 two-day snowfall record of 25.6 inches. And Allentown missed by one inch recording a whole season’s worth of snow in two days.

Almost three feet of snow was reported in parts of Somerset County, with more than 30 inches reported in other areas such as York, Franklin and Cumberland counties.
