Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

Woo Hoo!!! Break out the shovels and the scrapers! Snow is in the forecast and parts of NY may be seeing quite a bit for the first real snowfall of the season thanks to some cold air dropping down from our friendly neighbor to the north, Canada. There are several Winter Weather Messages posted for areas of New York for tomorrow through Wednesday including winter storm warnings and watches. Check out the snow advisories, watches and warnings for your area at NOAA weather service

As it stands right now all of the Golden Snowball cities with the exception of Albany have received a trace so far. It's almost 100 percent that the 2008 - 2009 golden snowball season will begin sometime early tomorrow or sometime tomorrow night and it will be interesting to see who starts off this season with a lead. I don't see Buffalo getting sneaky this season by getting a couple of feet lead on the rest of us like they did with the freak storm a couple of Octobers ago. At least let's all hope they don't. This is the time of year where I hate to see any heavy snow fall because the temperatures are normally right around freezing so the snow is the heavy weighted stuff. That along with the winds that may come with the snow could make for a mess in some locations. That October storm in Buffalo was a nasty storm as shown by the Generals video below.

There is nothing like the first fresh snowfall of the season to coat everything white making even a cloudy day seem brighter. For some reason it seems a little more enjoyable though when the snow actually holds off until after Halloween. Oh well, we've seen it many times in CNY and the surrounding areas in October so I suppose it's time to get go into winter mode. For now anyways and hope a few more fall days lay in the near future.

Areas of NY and PA are getting pounded! 2100' reporting 12.1" already in Northeast PA. Catskills & Poconos getting it. Too bad not here, I am jealous!

Hey ZR, are the plows all tuned up??? I see that a lot of the higher elevations are getting some decent amts.

I think anything we get will melt before anyone has a change to plow it. Nothing here in Da Cuse yet but it keeps trying with some pellets mixed in every now and then. I know we have been on the edge of the freezing rain/snow almost all day.

I'm wondering how Binghamton or Albany is making out. Bingo may be the leader after this first snowfall.

I live in Johnson city, and this has been a very frustrating storm. It is early evening, and I have yet to see a flake from this so-called big storm. Even if you factor in elevation, I thought we'd have an inch or two down in the valley. However, we have had nothing but cold rain.

Anon, that's a bummer. I would have thought that Johnson City would have been getting something.

Syracuse will have something to show but it's looking like Binghamton may be the first leader of the day. They are the first to report any snowfall. Right now officially they stand at 1.4 inches. Looking out the window I would guess about an inch or so but it may be less at the airport. It looks like the contest has begun :)

One other thing is that Rochester is showing MM which means there hasn't been a report updated. Also Albany has left out their snow section completely so who knows whether any snow is falling there.

Over here in Brooklyn, New York... seeing the weather maps earlier, how the snow line was approaching the city, but then retreated westward... so close yet so far! Haha, can't wait to see our first flakes in the big apple, hopefully we'll get something good going before Thanksgiving hits. Enjoy the triple digit seasonal snowfall, guys. Over here we make due with about 25 inches per winter, if that.
