Just did a full update at the Golden Snow Globe
According to NOAA, the national weather service out of Buffalo, Rochester broke the all time record for most snowfall for any December. Way to go Rochester. To me the certain monthly records rank third and are hard to break which makes it pretty cool IMO.
The hardest record would be the record for most snow in a season followed by the most snow recorded ever in any given month and then what both Rochester and Syracuse did this month. The most snowfall in a certain month… Congrats Rochester!!!!!
