Buffalo and Rochester Can Melt Away the Lead?

This late in the season you have to take what you can to win the Golden Snowball Award. My advice to Buffalo and Rochester is don't blow it with this new storm coming our way.

I've been reading around and it looks like Buffalo and perhaps Rochester has a real shot at melting away some of the lead that Syracuse has on them. Once again this is one of those storms that can hit or miss some of us, rain or snow or like most of the other storms drop every type of precipitation you can think of on one or all of us. I'm hoping that Buffalo and Rochester can take a big dent out of the Cuse's lead and it's looking like west and north of Syracuse could be the winners this time with Syracuse most likely being right on the edge. Winter storm warnings are posted for all 3 right now up until I believe Sunday morning.

Most likely your thinking the same as I am, HERE WE GO AGAIN! A winter storm in the forecast and most likely much to do about nothing. If it's going to be in the form of freezing rain and rain then lets hope it's a miss. Right now things are so saturated from the mid week storm that I'm sure a lot of areas, rivers and streams can't handle much more rain without causing problems especially down in the Binghamton area.

If it's going to be a decent amount of snow then bring it on. I'm sure the way this winter has gone that those who snowmobile and ski would like to get in as much of it as they can before the warm weather settles in. Most likely it will be a heavy wet snow for a good part of it. You know, the kind that makes shoveling soooo much fun. Hopefully the storm will find some cold air some where to give us that nice fluffy snow that makes shoveling bearable and easier on the back.

From what I have read things should start going downhill sometime later this afternoon and probably sooner for Buffalo and the Rock and they probably have the best chances of picking up some snow along with the north by tomorrow morning. It's pretty warm out right now in Syracuse, 42 degrees so if it does snow before rush hour hopefully it won't be sticking to the roads. As always check with your local forecasters for what's really going to happen and Good Luck to Buffalo and Rochester on keeping this race close. Hopefully the General and perhaps someone from the Rock will keep us updated as to what's going on there. Have a Great weekend all and GO CUSE! Basketball that is ;)

Thanks Anon! I think this is going to be the real deal for Rochacha and Buffalo this time round. Just a light drizzle of rain here in DaCuse.

I was looking at Accuweather which I really don't look at too much but they have something that says Weather Alarm for both cities. Check it out at

It says snow-13.5 in occurring for buffalo and 8.8 for Rochester.

Buffalo has a daily record snowfall as of 5pm of 5.2 inches (up to 82.3 for the season).

Rochester has 1.9 inches as of 5pm (up to 86.5 for the season).

Rochester and Buffalo should both see another 2-5 inches tonight before things slow down from part 1 of this storm.

Things will get interesting tomrrow as part 2 heads our way with another foot of snow possible and POTETINAL BLIZZARD CONDITIONS with the winds. Unfourtunetly I am *scheduled* to be somewhat out of town for a wedding tomorrow. Not sure how thats going to work out.. the girlfirend is planning to go and spend the night come hell or high water... so yeah I'll be out of the office tomororw :( missing all the fun weather happenings.

I'll drop a post later tonight and maybe sometime tomorrow. STAY SAFE ALL!

9PM Update: Moderate to heavy snow and about 3" on the ground here in the ROC. Will update around 1:30am

yes I heard TWC was hear to watch this storm play out. I'm gonna leave your post as I have little more to add. Buffalo area looks to get rocked the best I'm thinking a total storm accumulation around 15-20 inches. Maybe 12-16 around Rochester.

I'll be leaving around noon tomorrow so I should be posting before then.

ZR, did you get out of town? If so how was the trip home? Had to be a lot of rain I would think. Hopefully KaChing will be happening for you with this storm.

General, the WC was mentioning the blizzard watches and warnings. How are the winds in Buffalo? I think come tomorrow the winds are suppose to pick up so it could get intersting around the western cities.

I'm just hoping that Rochester and Buffalo keep it going. I want this race to be within a few inches come Sunday night. I don't think Syracuse is expecting much until maybe tomorrow evening and night.

It looks like Rochester might get a break and even Buffalo but I think it might be a short break for Buffalo as long as the white gold stays east enough :)

OH, and this sucks just watching it :( I wanna play too!!! Nothing going on around here what so ever.

P.s:Is There A Possibility That The Buffalo Public Schools Be Closed On Monday

1:30AM Update: Not really any more accum. Still about 4" here in the ROC.

Yes, I traveled back from Mass yesterday and it was clear until I got to Canandaigua around 3:30 and it was just starting to spit at that time.

If Buffalo got 10" yesterday they could certainly have pulled past ROC!

Might be a bit premature to start talking about schools being closed Monday, but anything is possible.

Things are getting mighty close!

Buffalo Is Buried Under 14 Inches Of Snow And We Are Expecting Another 2-4 This Afternoon And 5-8 This Evening And That Would Bring Snow Totals To 21-26 Range And Now That Is A Whole Lot Of Snow.

Pics Will Be Uploaded When This Storm Is Over

I just posted a new blog and no doubt things are getting pretty close General.

ZR, 8.2 showing for Buffalo and 5.5 I think it was for Rochester. I just looked at the airport stats and it looks like at least another 2 inches for Buffalo since then and about an inch for the Rock.

Ayuud, I have a feeling you will be getting between 10 - 17 inches more added to your totals come tomorrow.
