Syracuse Slides Past Last Season’s Total Snowfall

Syracuse managed to pile up enough snow yesterday to bring their totals to date over what they had their entire season last year.  They also set a record for the the date, Feb. 1st picking up 10.1 inches of snow.  The old record was 7.6 inches set in 1974…

Even though this season seems pretty easy for some of us so far, all of the Golden Snowball cities are over last years lame snow totals to date.

Syracuse slid past last seasons total snowfall which was 50.6 inches when the contest was called the end of April.  So far this season as of the end of the first day of February Syracuse has piled up 56.9 inches of snow with a lot of the snow season still left to go.  They are still behind their average to date which is 77.6 inches of snow.

That said all of the cities are still quite a bit behind what their average snowfall should be at this time in the season.

Have a Super Bowl kind of weekend everyone ;)

  1. Hey General, hopefully it keeps up at the airport. You managed to pass Binghamton and catch right up to Rochester. I think Rochester has been having the same problem this season. Snow all around them except for where it is measured. It looks like the cold air is here for the week so it may get interesting. Nice to see ya posting again :)

  2. 8 inches as of 8am for Buffalo today!!! Been a while since the airport has been able to cash in a good shot of lake effect… Lets see if we can add to that total a little more this afternoon when the band swings back through the area…
