Winter Snowstorm Jonas, a time lapse in Manhattan

From a window looking down upon the Upper East Side of Manhattan, watch snow accumulate in a time lapse made during winter storm Jonas, the city’s first big snowstorm of 2016.

Jonas dumped an impressive 26.8 in (68 cm) of snow on Central Park, where they’ve been recording snowfalls since 1869… that’s .1 inch less than the February 2006 blizzard that holds the top record.

Update: Here’s another time lapse from Purcellville, VA. Thanks, @cmykadam.
