Climatologist: Mount Arlington seems to fall short of breaking state record for snowfall

It seems that Mount Arlington has fallen sort of breaking a 122-year-old state record for the most amount of snowfall.
The National Weather Service made a preliminary report Tuesday that Mount Arlington got 35.5 inches of snow in the three-day storm. But now a state climatologist says that this does not appear to be the case and that the 35.5 inches may have been the result of a snow drift.
But even if the record has not been broken, Mount Arlington, like many towns in Morris County, received more than its fair share of the snow. A crew of seven people spent most of the storm working almost nonstop to clear the roadways in town and remove snow from parking lots and other public areas.
The nor’easter started Sunday evening and lasted into Tuesday evening.
The top record for snow is 34 inches that fell during a blizzard in Cape May County in 1899.
