Today’s snowstorm set a new record for snowfall in the Hartford area.

The state’s record snowfall before today was 21.9 inches at Bradley Airport. Today, we beat the record set in February 2006 when snow measured in at 22.5 inches. This storm also set a record for most snow falling in 24 hours.

Until now, no January storm has been in the top 10.

Guilford received 24 inches on Wednesday, which is likely the highest since 1978, according to NBC Connecticut Ryan Hanrahan.

Gov. Dannel Malloy said Newtown had received 29 inches by afternoon.
