Madison, Wisconsin - vs - Syracuse, New York

Sean Kirst had an article out earlier in the season about how Syracuse may have been the snowiest city with a population of 100,000 or more not only in the United States but in all of North America last year according to Canadian climatologist David Phillips. Read the story here http://www.syracuse.com/articles/kirst/index.ssf?/base/business-11/1197453467227480.xml&coll=1

Well move over Syracuse because Madison, Wisconsin is winning the snowball fight this season so far and the chances are with the snow totals that Syracuse has to date there may be a couple of other big cities kicking our butts also. No need to panic yet though because there is still a lot of snow season ahead whether you want it or not. Average isn't going to do it though and look at the stats above and you will see that Syracuse is dead on their average for this time into the snow season. Albany and Rochester are just tenths off their normal snowfall.

Right now Madison, Wisconsin has a snow total of 83.7 compared to Syracuse's snow total of 81.6. From what I have heard this has been the snowiest season on record for Madison and snow is still in the forecast for them. If I were a betting man, which I am, my bet would be on Syracuse remaining the snow champs in the US for big cities. I think the 2 mayors should get together and make a little city bet for the fun of it. Milwaukee isn't doing to bad either as far as snow totals go. They have over 76 inches so far this snow season.

OK, never-mind Madison the snow race is still pretty tight here in NY and Syracuse better worry about getting by the Golden Snowball cities first. Rochester is still well within striking distance of taking over the lead and Buffalo isn't out of it yet. Add in the coastal storms and the weather coming from the south and that keeps Binghamton and Albany alive also. All I can do is hope that the weather pattern changes soon so we can get in on some of that snowfall to the west of us instead of this warm wintry mix and rain that has been coming from the south. Enough said and have a great day. Kids, enjoy your winter vacation!!!

i guess i underestimated the amount of snow that would melt due to the warm air; we have almost no snow left here, except back in the woods :( . looks like snow showers all week, some from a clipper, some from lake effect. storm coming up on friday looks interesting at this early vantage point; according to the gfs model it gets binghamton with 5-8 inches of snow and syracuse with 3-5 inches; this is still way to early to take those numbers verbatum, im just throwing out there what the models are syaing right now

Keep throwing out your predictions Mike. People enjoy reading them. I think it hit the mid 50's over night. It was depressing to see the brwon and green showing again. What a difference a day makes in NYS.

Funny that you mentioned a clipper because I was just thinking this morning while I was typing that we really haven't had any this year that I can remember. Maybe 1??? I think that is exactly what we need. One that sticks around a week or so :)

patrick, unfortunetly ths clipper wont be anything special for our area, in fact it may not even hit da cuse :( binghamton has the best chance for maybe an inch or two of snow on wednesday as the clipper will be passing south of us across PA(the center will be). however fridays storm is still looking good, ihope mother nature doesnt jip us again and end up giving us rain or sleet instead of white gold!!!

Maybe Utica would give Syracuse a run for their money, last years total was almost 133 inches.

we should let utica, and elmira in on the contest, they are both rather large upstate cities; the only problem is nsowfall data. idk if they have it regualarly?

Mike, lets hope the white gold starts falling. I have good feeling about tonight although not much is expected either of our ways.

Anon and Anon, when I started keeping stats for the contest a few years back I though and still do think Utica would be awesome to have in the contest. I even mentioned it to one of the cities reps last year.

As the second Anon mentioned the stats would be a problem. Right now as far as I am aware there are no official NOAA stats or stations for the measurements. I know that WKTV in Utica http://www.wktv.com/weather/2002397.html posts some snow stats but again it's not NOAA which would make it a hard sell to the cities. IMO I think Utica would make the contest more exciting.

Anon from Wisconsin, Bring It On ;p I see that some snow is building up right now in parts of Wisconsin. What part of Wisconsin are you from? No doubt your in the right place for snow this season.

We have some snow in the forecast for tomorrow which should bring us pretty close to what Madison has right now which I think was 86.7 at last check. I'll keep a little post going about the two cities totals when I post. I think the locals are only calling for a few inches here tomorrow but I'm thinking more when all is said and done.
