Buffalo Chipping Away at the Snow Lead
Buffalo continues to chip slowly away at Syracuse's lead in the Golden Snowball contest pulling within less than 6 inches from them. Not a lot to add but an inch here and there adds up while waiting for some heavy white stuff to come down. Looking at the stats, both Buffalo and Syracuse are getting closer to their averages for this time in the snow season.
A good part of New York is under a storm watch for Tuesday and Wednesday. A watch means it could happen. When you see a warning for your area that means it's pretty much gonna happen. The temperatures from what I am reading will be a deciding factor as to whether it's snow or a winter mix. As the day goes on most likely NOAA will have it narrowed down. Most likely all the GSB cities will see something from this storm if it pans out and Binghamton might have a chance to do some catching up to the top 3 cities. Stay tuned as more details come out on this storm, which I believe is the first storm of the season for the GSB city's. I could be wrong on that though ; )
Also WeatherT in the forum just posted a video he took from up North. He mentions that the snow has settled quite a bit but the video is still pretty impressive. Check it out at http://www.geocities.com/tsforecast/ Below is the storm watch from NOAA!
