PIX11 was right: National Weather Service now says January blizzard was the biggest on record in NYC

NEW YORK — We told you first! January's blizzard set the record for biggest snowfall on record in New York City, although that milestone was only confirmed now, more than three months after the storm buried the tri-state area.
In the blizzard that lasted from Friday, January 22 to Sunday, January 24, we told viewers right after the storm ended that we suspected that the National Weather Service underestimated the measurement.
We were right.
Now, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has increased its previous snowfall total of 26.8 inches, which was just shy of the record of 26.9 set in 2006, to a whopping 27.5 inches, making the storm the snowiest since official record keeping began in Central Park in 1869.
“Snowfall isn’t the easiest weather event to measure," said PIX11 meteorologist Chris Knowles, who called it correctly during our special report on the morning of January 24. "The weather service should be applauded for ensuring the totals from our biggest snowstorm ever are now accurate.”
