10:00 AM Wednesday – So far a dud here in the Syracuse area but some of the other cities are getting some snow and from the sounds of things the storm isn’t over yet. Here is what the National Weather Service is reporting for yesterday and I believe this doesn’t include the overnight snow which will come out later. Syracuse ended up getting a lot of rain rather than snow. Look for another update as the snow stats come in.
Rochester – 3.6
Binghamton – 3.2
Buffalo – 2.5
Albany – 1.7
Syracuse – 0.7
12:16 am Wednesday 11/27/13 – Just a heads up that I’ll probably just keep updating this post as to what’s going on. So far tonight for the last couple of hours it’s been just rain with a mix of sleet every now and then in the Syracuse area. More to come in the morning 😉
It’s starting to look more and more like the storm they have been talking about is going to actually pan out. They were thinking several days ago that it may have stayed more toward the coast but it is on more of an inland track now and the chances are that at least a few of the Golden Snowball cities will get a decent amount of snow from this storm. I’m starting to think that Rochester is going to be the King Snowman for this storm and perhaps so far this season.
OK, does anyone have any estimates for this storm? Let’s say from the start to finish and we’ll call the finish date Thursday at 11:59 PM just in case some lake effect snow gets drawn into the cities when this pulls out.. The normal prize will be a lot of Notta as in Notta Thing other than a virtual pat on the back for calling it right. The person closests to the snow total for all of the cities snow added up wins. My guesstimate is below and you can post yours in the comments section anytime before midnight tonight, Tuesday.
Rochester – 13.5
Syracuse – 9.0
Buffalo – 7.0
Binghamton – 3.5
Albany – 2
TOTAL = 35 inches

Picture Around 10:00 AM Today, Wednesday
Normally I love a good storm but I really do wish or hope that they don’t happen during the holiday travel times. Unfortunately this storm most likely will effect quite a few people that will be traveling on Wednesday for the Thanksgiving holiday. For those of you traveling take it slow and have a safe trip. I know I’ll be worrying about a few of my family members who will be traveling. Take it slow and be prepared 😉
