Binghamton has jumped ahead of Buffalo this last update but only by a few flakes. Most of the Golden Snowball cities are now right around their normal snowfall averages for this time in the season and are starting to get a good jump on how much snow we had this time last year.
A couple of the cities, Syracuse and Rochester are more than a foot of snow above last season at this time. If my math is right and remember it’s me and I tend to use fuzzy math although not on purpose here are the differences from last season for the GSB cities.
Syracuse + 12.4
Rochester + 12.8
Binghamton + 5.7
Buffalo + 7.7
Albany + 1.8
It’s been so quiet this past week so that’s about all I got to post about. With this current storm that is hitting the east coast it could be interesting to see what tomorrow brings. In the mean time I did get a full update in on the National Snow Contest today at www.goldensnowglobe.com .
Have a Great Week All
Updated 12:10 AM Saturday – Just got a quick update in and it’s still Syracuse leading the Golden Snowball contest but they were bumped from the top of the National Snow contest.

Syracuse has taken the top spot for the first time this season. The lead changes continue but the top spot is up for grabs with Syracuse only holding a 0.4 inch lead over our good friends to the west, Rochester.
I just did an interview with Neeti from the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. We were both thinking that Rochester was still in the lead in the National Snow contest but unfortunately that changed with yesterdays snowfall in CNY so I don’t know if there will be an article out or not. My guess is that Rochester will be back on the top sometime soon. It was fun talking to you Neeti
Syracuse has also moved up in the National Snow Contest and Rochester is pulling their own snow in that contest also. Buffalo has moved into the top 10 now too in that contest at www.goldensnowglobe.com
All of our cities are starting to blow away the snow totals from last season at this time into the contest and Buffalo has even showed up so far to play in our snow games Remember, Buffalo has been having a few wimpy seasons the last few years. Hopefully they are out of their snow drought now.
No doubt the top spot is in striking distance for at least 4 of our cities with just one little blast of some lake effect snow. Lets hope it stays this close throughout the season
Have an Awesome Weekend Everyone
Syracuse was the king snowman yesterday so far picking up 4.5 inches of the white fluffy stuff yesterday. At least I hope it is fluffy and not wet heavy snow because I haven’t shoveled yet. Syracuse tied the date record of 4.5 inches going back to 1981. Albany finally got a peak at some snow picking up 0.4 inches.
Like a little kid I get all excited with the first decent snowfall of the season and went for a ride in the middle of a decent snow band that was hitting. The roads were slick with a few whiteouts from the windy lake effect snow band. I guess that it what makes LES so cool. The way the wind really picks up and how much snow can fall in a short amount of time when the snow band sets up over your house Of course I say I am like a little kid the first snowfall but I’m really like a little kid every time a storm or good lake effect snow hits. OK, maybe not so much so come around March when the shoveling starts getting a bit old.
I stayed up until around 2:30 this morning waiting for the new snow totals to come out from NOAA for Buffalo, Rochester and Albany so I would have a nice update this morning for you all buttttt. When the stats came out for those 3 cities all I saw was MM which means that they were missing the data. Wasn’t too happy about that of course and I wasn’t staying up until the 5am update, sorry about that. Then again overall NOAA is awesome with all of the information and stats they collect and post so I’ll stop my whining
The new totals include the snow from yesterday so they will be changing as the snow stats come in today and later tonight. I should be able to get at least one more update in later and we will see if all of the cities have more to add. My guess is they will.

Enjoy your Sunday All and Drive Safe!
Syracuse finally got some lake effect snow to help push them to the top of the snow hill. So far they are showing 2.5 inches of snowfall for the day to put them at the 3 inch mark. Just enough to take the lead from Binghamton who has been sitting at the top for awhile now.
Snow is still in the forecast so it should be interesting to see what later tonight and tomorrow drops on the Golden Snowball cities. Will Syracuse be able to hold the lead by the time the Lake Effect Machines start slowing down. Should be interesting
Then there is the possibility of a storm hitting the East Coast sometime this week. From what I have been reading the National Weather Service should have some kind of idea toward the end of this weekend as to how that storm will pan out and which cities it may effect. Makes me wonder if Albany may have an advantage with this one if it happens. More updates to come as the snow stats come in from NOAA.
Have a Great Night All
First off make sure you check out the post below to enter our snow contest. Today is the last day to get your entries in. Check it out here
Any snow falling yet in Rochester, Buffalo or Binghamton? As of right now, around 2:15 pm Sunday it’s windier than I have seen it in a long time. The gusts and winds that came through this morning had to be over 60 mph I would guess. Hopefully some decent lake effect snow comes into the golden snowball cities sometime soon. Nothing like some decent snow totals with whipping winds to make for a cool snow event. Of course take it slow on the roads if and when the snow does hit us. Clouds are just starting to move into the Syracuse area as I type.
Hey, how about the Orange? WTG on taking down the #1 basketball team in the country
10 PM Update - It looks like Syracuse slipped into the lead but we’ll wait until the stats come out tomorrow for all of the cities. The stats are updated as of between 4:00 and 5:00 Pm for today with Albany not reporting. Just off and on light snow in the Syracuse area so come tomorrow the king of the snow hill may still be up for grabs
Firts off – WE’RE ALIVE The Mayans had me sweating it out for awhile there, lol. Happy Winter All!
Just a quick update for now seeing how most of the stats are from just yesterday and not the overnight. .Buffalo grabbed enough snow to jump past Syracuse into 2nd place. WTG Buffalo and is this your season to take the golden prize?
Right now it looks like there is about 5 inches on the ground so far in Syracuse. Hopefully another 3-6 inches to come by the time it settles down. After the slow start we all have had so far there is a lot of snow totals to make up to get back to a normal season. I’ll get another snow total update in later when the National Weather Service posts them. GO SU!!!
