I finally woke up this morning to see some of that white fluffy gold in the sky falling and even sticking to the ground a bit. I figured a couple tenths of an inch where I live which is just outside of the city of Syracuse and not too far from the airport where they measure the snowfall for Da’Cuse. It also looked like it was snowing down toward Binghamton’s way so there is a good chance that we may have Liftoff for the new 2013 – 2014 snow season. The question now is which city/cities started it up this season?

How about Rochester or Buffalo? Any snow to report there today? From what I have been reading it’s suppose to be a cold winter this year which could mean some decent Lake Effect Snow for some of us. I’ll post an update later this afternoon or evening when NOAA posts the new stats from earlier today. Remember, ALL of the stats are courtesy of the national weather service and to this day it still amazes me how much info they have on their website.

On one other note there is a rumor going around about a big storm come the end of next week. After reading around about that it seems that right now it’s WAYYYY to far for the pros to predict but if everything falls in place perfectly it is a possibility that it just may pan out. Chances are they won’t be able to pin it down until some time next week so I wouldn’t worry about it just yet or is that I wouldn’t get excited about the Nor’easter just yet ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have an Awesome Day All ๐Ÿ˜‰


This is a class I took last season when they came around hereย and it was well worth it and very informative to say the least ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you or somebody that you know would be interested in becoming a volunteer weather spotter for us by reporting snowfall observations, this is your chance. We have upcoming classes, and plenty of free seats still available, November 29th in Wilkes-Barre, PA, December 6th in Oneonta, NY, and December 19th in Cortland, NY. If these are not close to you or if you are busy on the dates listed, consider signing up for our online class December 7th which still has room in it. To find more information on how to register check out the events section on this Facebook page. You can find the same information on their website below: CHEERS!

Free NOAA Snow Spotter Classes

Just a heads up that the National Weather Service in Binghamton and CNY Central TV Stations (TV 3 Syracuse) are having a Skywarn weather spotters training class tonight, Tuesday 5/8 at the East Syracuse Minoa high school on Fremont road.

I caught the first one which was based on winter weather, measuring snow, reporting it and a lot of great information. This one will cover the basics of thunderstorms, tornadoes, and flooding while training you on how to report severe weather to the National Weather Service. Very informative to say the least. The best part is it’s free to the public so check it out if you’re not doing anything tonight. More info at:ย and at
