Boston finally has its snow record, and it could get more.

With 2.9 inches Sunday, Logan International Airport hit 108.6 inches for the season, topping a record of 107.6 inches set in 1995-96, according to the National Weather Service in Taunton.

"Superbowls, World Series', Stanley Cups, and snowfall records," Mayor Marty Walsh tweeted. "We are truly a title city. There will be no parade."

The weather service noted that more snow is possible.

Computer models indicate a coastal storm could develop Friday, but they differ on its track. The storm could bring little to no precipitation to southern New England, or it could bring "a decent slug" of rain and snow to the region, the forecasters said Monday morning.

Sunday's snow came after a record-setting monthly snowfall of 64.9 inches in February. The worst previous single month was January 2005 when 43.3 inches fell.

The season snowfall record is measured from July 1 through June 30. Records go back to 1872.

Residents have had mixed feelings about the record, with some rooting for it.

Joe Ferreira, 27, of Boston, told The Boston Globe: "We were miserable, but at least now we're miserable champions."
