1/6 3:30 - Well that was short lived for Binghamton. OK, maybe not because I guess as of right now Binghamton is still in 3rd place but tied with Rochester for the spot. We’ll have to wait and see what the next update from the National Weather Service has to offer Here are the totals being reported for yesterdays snow storm..
Binghamton – 13.2 beating the old date snow record of 3.0 back in 1976
Rochester – 12.7 breaking the date record of 5.5 back in 1907
Albany – 10.4 breaking the old date record of 8.0 inches dating back to 1975
Syracuse – 10.0 inches breaking the 1995 date record of 5.6 inches of snowfall
Buffalo – 8.8 beating the date record of 5.2 going way back to 1916
All in all some pretty good totals for all of the Golden Snowball cities. Stay tuned and have a Great Day
1/5 - Binghamton Storms past Rochester to take the number 3 spot on the snow hill
OK, I just found some snow stats for Syracuse and Binghamton and it’s looking like Binghamton may be the big winner of this round. Binghamton so far has crushed their date record for snow showing 11.4 inches of snow breaking the old record of 3 inches set back in 1976.
Syracuse so far is reporting 7 inches breaking the date record of 5.6 inches of snow set back in 1995.
I’ve been trying to get an update in for awhile now but The National Weather Service’s (NOAA)website seems to be having problems. I’m sure with this big of a snow storm the website is most likely getting pounded. I was able to get some newer snow stats for Buffalo and Rochester however Binghamton, Syracuse and Albany haven’t been updated yet for today.
Buffalo set a date record picking up 7.4 inches of new snow breaking the old record of 5.2 going all the way back to 1916. Rochester also broke/tied a record for the day with 5.5 inches of snow going all the way back to 1907. I say broke because most likely Rochester will be adding more to their snow totals.
I’ll take a look later to see if NOAA is reporting some new snow stats and post them as they come in. Guessing where I am at we have about 9 – 11 inches of snow just outside of the Syracuse area. We’ll see what NOAA has for us, stay tuned…
