syracuse lake effect snow

All posts tagged syracuse lake effect snow

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.
