3 City Snowfall Records Broken

You have to wonder if three daily snowfall records being set yesterday is a sign of the snow season that lies ahead of us. Binghamton, Syracuse and Rochester all set the record for the most snowfall on the date for yesterday. Buffalo is just showing a trace of snow for yesterday which is totally mind boggling to me....

Binghamton probably got a little short changed on the snow stats but still managed to break the daily snow total that went back to 1972 picking up 2.4 inches. Rochester broke the daily record for yesterday picking up 8.4 inches for yesterday blowing away the old record of 4.5 also set in 1972. Syracuse broke the old date record which went all the way back to 1950 also picking up 8.4 inches for yesterday.

A few people were wondering why Binghamtons totals were coming in so low including myself. Here is the explanation as to how it went according to a forum member who lives in the Bingo area. "A couple things happened. One was that the best lake band dropped into western and southern Broome county and missed the airport. The other was that the wind at the airport was blowing around 30 mph and kept blowing the lake fluff off the snowboards so the guys had to estimate". It all evens out though. Sometimes the airports will get more snow and other times they won't for most of the cities.

We have a long snowy season ahead of us and this is just the start of it. Looking at this years snow stats and comparing them with last years I'm starting to feel more and more confident about my winter predictions for this season . So far this season 2 city's Binghamton and Rochester are already over the one foot milestone and Syracuse is already over the two foot mark. Interesting start to say the least. Have a great day all!

Maybe a long snowy season is ahead...or maybe we're getting a lot of snow early and we won't get that much later in the season.

I'm just thinking how all the snow seemed to hit us late last year...all that snow in April!

idk i would have to almost guarentee that even the airport,with missing the best band recieved more than 2.4, probably more like 4 inches based on radar data, but like you said it should all even out.

Angie, My sister said the exact same thing today about us getting the snow early so maybe we won't get it like we did last season which like you mentioned was late in the snow season. Most likely just wishful thinking. I would have no problem with Spring weather in March :) That said I'll have to go back and look to see how the 2003 - 2004 season started. Syracuse received 181 inches that season and if I remember right we might of set a lot of records those years and I think it was similar to this season. I could be wrong but when I have some time I'll check it out.

Mike, lets hope it all evens out. Between myself and you and of course everyone else that reads this I would love for Binghamton to pull an upset and be the first city to take a victory away from DaCuse since the contest started up again :)

patrick,an upset would be nice, i am a skier and a snow lover in general so im hoping for all of CNY to get alot of snow this year( yes even Albany..who is slacking right now). i hope we dont get thrown into a mild weather pattern like some of the long range forecast were saying.

about .25 to .5 inches of snow today down here. we could pick up some ice and hopefully some snow sunday thru tuesday this week. major nor easter POSSIBLE around 17th of december, well see!!
