A SNOW DANCE HAS BEEN PERFORMED :) Time for Syracuse to make their move in the snow contest… To all of the meteorologists, your equipment is fine and don’t mind the weird pattern changes on the radars in the near future. Just a little snow dance, that’s all 😉

I have to say that I am impressed with Buffalo so far this season holding on to the snow lead as long as they have. I would guess looking at the snow stats that sometime last week we hit the halfway mark for the 2014 – 2015 snow season. Of course none of us have a clue as to what Mother Nature and Father Winter have in store for us in the second half. If the last several days are any indication it could be a stormy second half to the snow season. There is another storm moving into some of our areas so keep an eye on it. This storm should help Albany out and maybe Binghamton. Click Here to Keep Updated on The Snow Storm!

Check out the current snow stats and you will notice that the normal snowfall averages to date for this time of the year are more than half of what each of the cities average for the snow season. In other words Buffalo has 56.4 inches of snow for what their normal snowfall should be to date which is more than half of what their Entire season on average totals are which is 94.7. It’s the same with the rest of the cities in the GSB snow contest.

Syracuse to date on average has 68.9 which is more than half of the total snowfall for an average season. Binghamton shows the normal snow to date at 42.0 inches which is just over their normal total season snowfall of 83.4. Rochester’s normal is 51.2, again just more than half of what the totals are for the entire season which are 99.5. Wrapping it up with Albany who by the way we may want to keep an eye on the next couple of days normals are at 30.4 and are just over half of the normal seasonal snowfall of 59.1 inches of snow… As always keep in mind that my fuzzy math shows up every now and then 😉

So I would think it is safe to say that we have all made it through the first half of the Snow Bowl and it was pretty lame for most of us. I don’t think the second half is going to be as easy though if the past several days are an indicator. Another clipper that turns into a coastal or Nor’easter has already shaped up and some blizzard warnings are being post for some of the cities on the Northeast coast. Right now it is looking good for Albany and maybe Binghamton will be able to sneak some of it into their city to climb up the snow hill a little.

Rochester and Syracuse both have some kind of snow bubble over the cities. As of the last update both Binghamton and Rochester are tied for 3rd place or is that tied for 4th place? The scary part or embarrassing part is that one of those cities may be in last place by the end of Tuesday or even sooner depending on how this storm tracks and when. I think it would be funny to see Albany at the top of the snow hill after this storm is done with them. I think they trail Buffalo by too much right now but I do think they have a chance at taking the number 2 slot on the snow hill. Stay tuned and I’ll be posting the snow updates as they come into me.

Have an Awesome Weekend Alll!

10:00 AM Wednesday – So far a dud here in the Syracuse area but some of the other cities are getting some snow and from the sounds of things the storm isn’t over yet. Here is what the National Weather Service is reporting for yesterday and I believe this doesn’t include the overnight snow which will come out later. Syracuse ended up getting a lot of rain rather than snow. Look for another update as the snow stats come in.

Rochester – 3.6
Binghamton – 3.2
Buffalo – 2.5
Albany – 1.7
Syracuse – 0.7

12:16 am Wednesday 11/27/13 – Just a heads up that I’ll probably just keep updating this post as to what’s going on. So far tonight for the last couple of hours it’s been just rain with a mix of sleet every now and then in the Syracuse area. More to come in the morning 😉

It’s starting to look more and more like the storm they have been talking about is going to actually pan out.  They were thinking several days ago that it may have stayed more toward the coast but it is on more of an inland track now and the chances are that at least a few of the Golden Snowball cities will get a decent amount of snow from this storm.  I’m starting to think that Rochester is going to be the King Snowman for this storm and perhaps so far this season.

OK, does anyone have any estimates for this storm?  Let’s say from the start to finish and we’ll call the finish date Thursday at 11:59 PM just in case some lake effect snow gets drawn into the cities when this pulls out..  The normal prize will be a lot of Notta as in Notta Thing other than a virtual pat on the back for calling it right.  The person closests to the snow total for all of the cities snow added up wins.  My guesstimate is below and you can post yours in the comments section anytime before midnight tonight, Tuesday.

Rochester – 13.5
Syracuse – 9.0
Buffalo – 7.0
Binghamton – 3.5
Albany – 2
TOTAL = 35 inches :)

Thanksgiving Storm 11/27 10:15 am

Picture Around 10:00 AM Today, Wednesday

Normally I love a good storm but I really do wish or hope that they don’t happen during the holiday travel times.  Unfortunately this storm most likely will effect quite a few people that will be traveling on Wednesday for the Thanksgiving holiday.  For those of you traveling take it slow and have a safe trip.  I know I’ll be worrying about a few of my family members who will be traveling.  Take it slow and be prepared 😉
