NY Valentines Day Storm Updated Snow Stats
Well the new numbers are in for the Golden Snowball city's which are updated to about 5 pm give or take a little. Rochester did pretty good reporting 12.7 inches so far which brings them to a respectable total finally for the season and they are now only less than 7 inches from their averages for this time of year.
Buffalo just couldn't get it going. I was surprised along with a lot of other people seeing some of the reports of only 5 inches or so. Of course being farther west hurt them but I think most of us expected somewhere near a foot or so from this storm. No biggy and this didn't hurt them too much in the overall totals. Plus they are only around 7 inches away from their entire season totals for last year and only an inch off their normals for this time in the season.
Albany who still has a slight chance to make out the best from this storm is showing 8.8 inches of new snow. The thing with Albany is that while the storm is winding down for most of us, they still have a chance to add to their totals.
Binghamton - Look out here they come! The stats were just posted and they are checking in with a record on the day for them of 16.7 inches. Way to go Binghamton. They almost doubled their snow totals for the season in just one storm. They are still aways off their normals but who knows how many of these storms are waiting around the corner. I'm thinking more that Binghamton is gonna win this round now.
Syracuse is not showing what I expected to see. They just posted the stats for Syracuse and they are only coming in with 8.6 inches of new snowfall. I measured almost 14 inches at my house which is a pretty big difference. The weather channel mentioned something like 12 inches this afternoon in the city. With the 1 1/2 inches added this morning that brings it to around 10 inches which could be all that fell at the airport. On a good note, Syracuse has finally hit their average snowfall for the season which isn't bad considering how they started out. So to round it up here is the new snow that was just reported and added to the totals above. Have a Great Night All!
