Another quick update – The Syracuse snow stats were just posted a little while ago.  They are showing 7.9 for today bringing their 2 day storm totals to 12.5 inches of new snowfall.  The chart is as up to date as the National Weather Service is now 😉

Updated 12/27 – The new snow stats were just posted with the exception of Syracuse which is showing MM meaning the stats aren’t being reported yet.  Surprisingly there were no changes in the lineup and the totals although pretty decent were a little lower than I expected them to be.  Here at my house east of the city of Syracuse I measured 13 inches of snow.  Buffalo took the honors with this snow storm picking up 12.3 inches of snow for the 2 days.  That is unless Syracuse can top it when an update for them comes out.  Here is the way it all played out the last 2 days and keep an eye on my fuzzy math 😉

Buffalo – 12.3 inches
Rochester – 11.1
Syracuse – 12.5
Albany – 7.8
Binghamton – 6.3


6:00 AM Update – I just updated the snow stats and they are from what has fallen as of yesterday so far.  No doubt this has been a decent storm because I can tell by how many cars come into the yard taking the turn :) 2 so far for this storm with the last one being about an hour ago.  One was able to get out on her own and the other one was buried pretty good so we were able to get him shoveled out about 4 am.  Time for a nap and it will be interesting when the next update comes out. So as of the end of yesterday the storm totals are and don’t let them fool ya just yet, many more inches to be added to some of the cities 😉  Good Night

Buffalo – 10.1
Rochester – 8.5 Record
Binghamton – 5.1
Syracuse – 4.6
Albany – 2.9


10:30 PM Update –  As of right now Syracuse and Binghamton are the only cities that have updates out thanks to the Binghamton NOAA station.  Buffalo and The Rock normally come out around 2:00 am give or take so you may not see them posted until tomorrow.  Right now Binghamton is showing 4.1 and Syracuse is reporting 3.8 as of 10 PM for this snow storm.  Any Guesstimates as to which city will have the highest totals for this storm?  I’m going with –

Rochester – 15.5
Syracuse – 13.0
Buffalo – 11.5
Binghamton – 11.0
Albany – 8.5


Winter storm warnings are / will be in effect for all of the Golden Snowball cities so if you need to travel you should do it early.  From reading around at the National weather service most of the heavy snow won’t be starting until later on for some of the cities.

Most of the forecasts are calling for at least a 8 – 14+ inches of snow between tonight and tomorrow afternoon.  They are also saying we can expect 2 – 3 inches an hour at times which is a lot of snow coming down and normally will stop traffic.  In other words as much as we are use to the snow you should stay off the roads for this storm.  Keep an eye on your favorite news channel for changing conditions and take it slow.  Below are links that will get updated by the National Weather Service as the snow storm gets closer.
