OK, I had to hurry up and get that out, that Buffalo is in last place in the Golden Snowball contest. Chances are I won’t be saying that for awhile with all of the lake effect snow that they are expecting the next couple of days. So, Yup, Buffalo is in dead last place and even behind Albany, snicker 😉
From reading around the weather sites it’s looking like it is still a go for Buffalo to receive close to a couple of feet and maybe even more. Hopefully for you snow lovers the snow bands will set up just right and hang over the airport. Don’t underestimate this either because with the wind and that amount of snow there is no doubt it will be dangerous out there so Drive careful and stay safe.
Predictions For Snow
I just added 0.6 of an inch to Buffalo’s totals so the chances are that it is snowing right now there. It will also be interesting to see if Buffalo can over take Erie, Pa in the National Snow Contest Here. Right now Buffalo isn’t even in the top 25 snowiest cities but if this all pans out they should most likely jump to at least second place in the contest. Depending on how Erie makes out with the lake effect snow Buffalo may even have a shot at taking the top spot on the snow mountain in the Golden Snow Globe contest. Stay Tuned!
Buffalo keeps piling on the snow and now has a pretty decent lead over the rest of the Golden Snowball cities. Buffalo has almost a foot of snow more than Syracuse who is currently in second place in the snow contest.
I think the big news is that as of yesterday 1/8/14 Buffalo has had more snow this early in the season than ALL of last season. Buffalos”(?) current snow total as of yesterday is 62.9 inches. Buffalo only received 58.8 inches of snow for the entire 2012-2013 snow season. WTG Buffalo 😉
Buffalo also set a date record with 7.6 inches of snowfall beating the old record of 6.6 inches dating all the way back to 1942. If my math is correct and don’t forget it normally isn’t, so far Buffalo has a 3 day total 17.6 inches. Jeesh, isn’t Lake Erie frozen over yet?
I don’t think the rest of us have to worry just yet because we still have about 3 more months of snow left. In other words it is still just the beginning of our snowy season and we all know from past years that one good storm changes everything.
Have a Great Day All 😉
Buffalo has taken the lead in the Golden Snowball contest and did it in style picking up 7 inches of snowfall. I was hearing about the blizzard warnings that were issued for the Buffalo area and was wondering what the new totals would be. Way to go Buffalo and keep it going or is that keep it snowing 😉
Buffalo is now only 3.6 inches away from having more snow so far this season than all of last season which was 58.8 inches.
Buffalo’s 7 inches of snow yesterday just missed setting a date record which is 7.3 inches set back in 1963. I was reading about the high winds, blizzard conditions and the highway being closed by the governor so no doubt it had to have been pretty nasty to the west, The same is going on and has been to the north of Syracuse,
The chances are that Buffalo will most likely move up in the National Snow contest also. Depending on what Grand Rapids has to report Buffalo may move into second place in that snow contest. Give me a little bit of time and I’ll get a top 10 update done at the National Snow Contest the Golden Snow Globe site.
Have an Awesome Day All
