Syracuse’s Latest Date in Season Without an Inch of Snow

According to CNY Central and Molly Matott this is the latest that Syracuse, New York has gone in a season without receiving at least an inch of snow. The previous record was tied yesterday, December 18th which was set in 1998 and broken today December 19th with the National Weather Service still only reporting 0.8 inches of snow for Syracuse this season. WTG Syracuse, now stop it and let’s get the lake effect machine cranking while we finally have some cold air around.

Buffalo’s Longest Latest Snowless Streak Comes To an End

It didn’t come to an end with a big bang, but Buffalo’s streak of the latest they have received measurable snowfall in a season has ended. It ended yesterday, 12/18 when Buffalo received a tenth of an inch of snow. Pretty much just a dusting but a measurable dusting of snow and that is what Buffalo’s snow totals as of the last update are so far this season, 0.1. Buffalo blew away the previous record by over two weeks which was set wayyy back on December 3rd, 1899 for the latest measurable snowfall at the airport. WTG Buffalo 😉 I’m really not liking this trend at all BTW :(

This Season’s Snow Compared to Normal and Last Season

Taking an idea (stealing, shhh) from an article I read by Glenn Coin from the Post Standard I added up some snow totals and keep in mind my fuzzy math 😉 I totaled up all of the snow that the Golden Snowball cities have received so far this season and compared them to what the normal totals should be and also to what all of the cities had this time last season. I’m pretty sure that none of you in Syracuse, Buffalo, Rochester, Binghamton or Albany are complaining about too much snow this season or how cold it’s been. I’m pretty sure the folks with snowmobiles, skiers and those of you that ice fish and plow probably are though and should be..

All Cities Combined Snow Totals

This Snow Season – 3.2 Inches of Snow (Really)

Normal Snow Season – 96.9 Inches of Snow

Last Season (2014-2015) – 128.2 (WOW)

Prety wild isn’t it? Enjoy it while you can because I’m pretty sure it won’t last thru the season. Then again, ya never know! Have a Great Weekend Everyone :)

WTG Buffalo on receiving now measurable snow so far this season breaking the old record for no snow this late in the season. Keep it up Buffalo 😉

Buffalo National Weather Service Statement – “It’s official, Buffalo has set a new record for the latest measurable snow. The previous record was December 3rd, set back in 1899. We will continue to add to this record for many days to come, with no cold or snow expected for at least the next 10 days. Here is the 6-10 day forecast, showing very high chances for above normal temperatures to last for much of the nation through the middle of December.”.

As of the last update, all of the Golden Snowball cities are behind what the average snowfall totals should be and WAY behind what we all had at this time last season. From reading around, it looks like the snow may hold off through at least the next couple of weeks butttt… A snow dance is in the works so that will probably change 😉

Have a Great night everyone!
