Rainiest Cities in Golden Snowball Contest
I was finally able to get an update in on the rain totals for the Golden Snowball cities and it’s pretty close. Right now Binghamton, NY has a slight lead over Syracuse, New York. The rest of the cities, Rochester, Albany and Buffalo are only 2-3 inches behind the leader.
Albany, unlike the snow contest, managed to pour themselves out of last place in the rain contest and it’s Buffalo that holds the title right now for being the least rainiest city out of the bunch. Unless you’re a farmer that probably isn’t a bad thing Check out the rain totals here.
Almost Time to Start the Golden Snowball Snow Contest
Who is ready for some SNOW? Don’t ya all just hate that 4 letter word I’m starting to see SNOW mentioned in some of the forecasts in New York and we all know that it’s just a matter of time. So far only Binghamton is showing a trace of snow. I would love to know when they got it and what it was that you received in Binghamton. Remember that the Golden Snowball contest doesn’t officially get started until one of the cities receive some measurable snowfall. Could this FINALLY be Buffalo’s season to win the Golden Snowball trophy?
The National snow contest started up a week or so ago. Yup, you heard me right. Anchorage, Alaska received 2.8 inches of snow to start the national snow contest up for the 2015-2016 season. There are several cities in that snow contest with at least a trace so far but only Anchorage has some measurable snow so far. Visit The National Snow Contest Here!
Stay Tuned! It won’t be long now and don’t ya just hate me now
First off as always a Big Thanks to John P for your recent donation to the site. I just noticed it and I think it was the first one of the summer. A Big Thanks John, I really Appreciate you taking the time. It helped out a lot during these slow summer months
Binghamton continues to lead our little rain contest between the Golden Snowball cities so far for 2015. Binghamton on average should be at the top but what I just noticed is last place Albany should be right at the top with them. Both of the cities average rainfall to date is 25.56 inches. It looks like Albany may follow their typical winter snowfall rank and come in last place. I’m sure the good folks in Albany don’t mind too much though.
Binghamton, Rochester and Syracuse New York all continue to be at least a few inches over what their average rain totals should be for this time in the year. Both Buffalo and Albany continue to be below their average rainfall to date with Buffalo only being 0.08 inches below normal. Pretty much a typical summer for those of you in Buffalo unlike the way the snow season started out last year. Below are how all of the cities are doing so far this year compared to an average year.
Binghamton – Plus 5.96
Syracuse – Plus 3.26
Rochester – Plus 4.15
Buffalo – Minus 0.08
Albany – Minus 2.42

Which Golden Snowball City Gets The Most Rainfall
I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that the Golden Snowball contest will start keeping track of the total rainfall that the cities get. I’ve always been curious as to how the cities in the Golden Snowball contest stack up when it come to rain. The rain totals posted here for Albany, Binghamton, Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, New York are the yearly totals so far for 2015.
This should be a fun contest because I doubt that Syracuse will be the favorite like they are in the snow contest. Right now Binghamton is at the top of the Puddle with 26.03 inches of rainfall on the year. Albany is in last place, go figure so it looks like Albany will just carry over from the snow race 😉 I really don’t have a clue as to which city is the favorite other than by going by what the average rain to date is. That shows that most of the cities are pretty close to each other so it should be interesting. We all know what one good thunderstorm can drop so I am guessing the rain contest will probably have several lead changes like the snow contest does.
I am also keeping track of which city records the hottest day for the year, 2015. Rochester has bragging rights to having the highest temperature so far for 2015 which is 92 degrees. The high temp contest should be fun also and it’s starting to look like summer is finally making an appearance this week 😉
Any thoughts or as always any suggestions feel free to post them here or get a hold of me through the contact page. This is all new to me so bear with me as I try to get this up and running. You can check out the cities 2015 rainfall totals here!
Have an Awesome Day Everyone 😉
