Updated 8 PM 2/9 –

Like Bruce said in the comment section “don’t stick a fork in ROC vs Albany yet.” No way would I do that and The Roc is looking good right now. I may hand a spoon to Rochester to help them out shoveling the little bit of snow they received so far this season though πŸ˜‰ Thats a joke Roc and looking at Syracuse’s snow totals so far I don’t think I can say much πŸ˜‰ Actually Rochester moved into the 3rd place slot on the snow hill this last update.

Binghamton dropped into the number 4 slot and Albany still remains in last place where they belong, I’M JOKING. Albany is actually having a good season so far and I think they will have more snow to report when they put out the next update. I still think it is going to be close between Rochester, Binghamton and Albany when the new snow totals do come out but I don’t know if they can catch Rochester right now..

Syracuse managed to melt a little more away from Buffalo and we will see if that continues this week. I’m reading about a couple of possible snow events coming up around Thursday. Check with the pros in your neck of the woods because my middle name is clueless πŸ˜‰ Have an Awesome Night All…

Updated Noon 2/9/15 –From what I am reading and from looking around it’s looking like Albany and Syracuse could make out the best from the current storm. Rochester so far is showing the highest snow totals for yesterday with 5.5 inches of snow on the day. That is probably a good thing and may be enough to keep them out of last place or Not. Looking at the radars I think it will be close as to what city ends up in last place when all is said and done πŸ˜‰

If Albany gets what they ere expecting it’s most likely going to be a good battle between Binghamton, Albany and Rochester to stay out of last place. Yup, Albany has a real shot at moving into the 3rd place spot on the snow hill this late in the season believe it or not πŸ˜‰

Syracuse has been able to cut into Buffalo’s lead a little bit and right now every snowflake they can melt away from Buffalo’s lead helps. Just a few days ago Syracuse was trailing Buffalo by around 17 inches. Right now Buffalo has a lead of 14.4 inches over Syracuse. There is a good chance the lead will get smaller come the next update to make the contest a little closer…

I don’t think Albany can catch second place Syracuse this round but they could melt some of the lead away that Syracuse has over them right now. There is only 5 inches separating the 3 cities in 3rd, 4th and last place right now so it will be interesting come the next snow update a little later on. Below are the snow totals that the cities received yesterday and not necessary the storm totals.. I’ll have to look back to Saturday night for those.

Snow Totals For Yesterday

Rochester – 5.5
Syracuse – 3.6
Albany – 3.0
Buffalo – 2.4
Binghamton – 0.8

Stay Tuned for Another Update a Bit Later and Stay Safe All!

Get ready because it’s time for another snowball fight in the Golden Snowball Contest :) This could be one that Buffalo may actually lose for a change. Buffalo has been enjoying being the King of the snow hill this season and has dug in pretty good but a few of the cities may move a little closer to them with this next storm. That said Buffalo just hit the 80 inches of snow mark for the season πŸ˜‰

Right now there are winter storm warnings out for most of the cities so check with your locals and the National Weather Service for updates. There are some links below with info as to what’s going on in your neck of the woods.

This could be a chance for Rochester, Syracuse and Albany to melt away a little bit of the lead that Buffalo has over the cities right now. From what I am reading and it still looks like the temperatures may play a part in this storm is that

Buffalo is expecting anywhere from 5-9 inches of snow between now and Monday night and so far is just under a Winter Weather Advisory at last check but that could could change. As always, keep in mind I’m clueless so check with the pros for the latest updates on this storm.

Albany may win this round and they are predicting anywhere from 9-18 inches for Albany at last check through Monday night. Still hard to believe how tough Albany is hanging this season πŸ˜‰

Binghamton is under winter storm warning at last check and is expected to receive anywhere from 6 to 10 inches between now and Monday night. It will be interesting to see if Binghamton can pass Syracuse for the 2nd place slot on the snow hill.

Rochester is also under under a storm warning and is expecting to receive 8 to 12 inches of new snowfall. Can they move into the number 2 slot??? No doubt it’s time for them to make some kind of attack on the snow hill. HINT to Rochester, measure the snow before the jets start their engines and take off this time, I’m joking πŸ˜‰

Syracuse like Rochester really needs to get in on this snowball fight. It seems like just about every snow event this season both cities have had some kind of snow dome or umbrella up to keep the snow away. Some decent snow has been around them but they just can’t seem to bring it in. Maybe this time. Syracuse is under a winter snowstorm warning and is forecast at last check to get anywhere between 8 to 12 inches through Monday night. You can check out the latest warnings and watches by click on your city below.

Well the storm is over and it didn’t change a whole lot as far as the lead goes. Both Buffalo and Syracuse got just about the same amount of snow the last couple of days. Rochester ended up winning this round but need 2- 3 more of those storms to get near the top and that’s only if they miss Buffalo and Syracuse. I don’t see that happening. Bingo stayed out of this round and Albany picked up a handful of snow.

This snow storm did put Rochester and Syracuse over their totals for the season so anything now is just a bonus, lol if that’s what we want to call it :) So now 4 of the 5 cities are over their seasonal snow totals except for Binghamton who needs just 2 tenths of an inch to pass theirs.

This storm did make a pretty big difference in the National Snowiest Big City Contest in the country though. Syracuse has closed to within 2 inches of the leader which is Erie, Pa. Buffalo moved up into the number 3 spot on the snow mountain and Rochester is now in the top 5 snowiest cities in the US. You can check out the Nation Snow Contest here. Here is what I have for the cities for the storm totals or for the last couple of days.

Rochester – 16.2
Buffalo – 13.8
Syracuse – 13.6
Albany – 5.5
Binghamton – 0.4

Have an Awesome Weekend Everyone :)

Update 9:30 AM 3/13 – First keep in mind that the overnight snow hasn’t been reported yet and aren’t included in these totals. That said it looks like as of now anyway, that Buffalo has melted a little bit of Syracuse’s lead away. Syracuse was ahead by 8 inches before this last batch of snow came out of the freezer and now it’s just over 6 inches. Still a lot of time left for Buffalo to catch Da’Cuse πŸ˜‰ Here are the snow totals for yesterday from NOAA. Looking at my driveway right now I’m guessing there will be more snow to add to the totals from the overnight snow so Stay Tuned. So far Rochester is winning this round and has gone over the 100 inch mark. Rochester is also finally starting to pull away from Binghamton and it will be interesting to see where they are in the National Snow Contest Here. Buffalo as of the last update has moved into the #3 spot on the snow mountain in that race to the top πŸ˜‰

Rochester – 14.9
Buffalo – 13.8 which broke a date record set back in 1959 of 7.3 inches. WTG!
Syracuse – 12.1 inches of snow.
—————————————

Update 10:30 PM 3/12 – I’m starting to think that the snow contest could get really interesting come tomorrow. I’m hearing that Buffalo’s snow totals for today may be at 13.5 inches right now. Depending on what happens during the overnight Buffalo has a good chance at moving even closer to the top of the snow hill and who know what else πŸ˜‰
————————-

Update 7:00 PM 3/12 – Just updated all of the cities and the snow race just got tighter. Both Buffalo and Rochester picked up just a little bit more snow than Syracuse but remember that every inch is big this late into the season. Here is what has been reported so far today.

Buffalo – 9.4
Rochester – 8.2
Syracuse – 8.0

STAY TUNED πŸ˜‰

Update 3:00 PM 3/12 – Steady snow in the Syracuse area with heavier snow expected anytime now. The winds have been quiet so far but are also expected to pick up soon. The last 2 hourly measurements I took it was snowing at a rate of 1 1/2 inches per hour. I was just watching Rochester on the weather channel and no doubt they are in a blizzard and it is nasty. How has the snow storm been where you are right now? Stay Safe and take it slow all… I will be getting an update posted when the new NOAA stats come out in awhile, normally between 5-6 PM. Should be interesting and stay tuned..

I’m sure most of you have already heard about the new snow storm that is going to hit sometime in the wee hours of tonight and tomorrow. I’ve been reading around and seeing all kind of forecasts for different amounts of snow that the Golden Snowball cities will be getting. Syracuse has a slight lead over Buffalo right now of 8 inches and if I were a betting man, oh yeah, I am πŸ˜‰ I would be putting my money on Rochester I think for this round.

I’m also betting that Buffalo will be able to melt away some of the lead that Syracuse has right now and who knows, just a little shift in the storm and Buffalo could be the new king of the Snow Hill come the end of Thursday. I think it will also be interesting to see how much if any lake effect starts up when the cold air comes through.

Here is what we saw at last check of what NOAA was predicting. 18-24 inches of snow for Rochester, 14 – 18 inches for Buffalo, 8 – 14 inches for Syracuse and I’m not seeing anything for Albany. Below are some links to the national weather service and a map of the Buffalo – Rochester area. KEEP IN MIND – all of this could change and keep checking with the pros at your local stations or the links below for the most recent updates. Be smart and take it slow and stay safe everyone πŸ˜‰
