Buffalo and Rochester Hit Season Snow Totals

Both Rochester and Buffalo have now hit their average seasonal snow totals and any snow from here on is bonus snow. With the storm that's taking place right now unfortunately too far to the east of most of the GSB cities I don't see any real threat of Buffalo or Rochester making up much in way of the snow gap that Syracuse has put in place so far this season. It will be interesting to see if Albany can pull in some snow from the storm.

Right now Syracuse is still looking really good for a top 10 finish. As of right now DaCuse has had it's 11th snowiest season on record and needs just 5.3 inches to take a top 10 spot. Click Here to check out the top 15 seasons for Syracuse snowfall courtesy of a link from Brian Cubbison at the post standard. I was just thinking (OK, dreaming) that if that storm to the east would have come to the west and hit Syracuse it may have set up the possibility of a shot at the all time record for the Golden Snowball cities which Buffalo still has bragging rights to at 199.4 inches. Could have, should have but didn't though. If we're lucky maybe it can pull in some moisture that may be around and hopefully get the lake effect machine to fire up. I'm still thinking perhaps a top 5 finish... Go Figure Huh ;)

One thing I noticed while looking at the top 15 snowiest seasons is that 5 of the seasons in the top 15 are from this decade. Thats a 3rd of them which I kind of thought was pretty interesting.

Have a Great Week All!

It isn't surprising that 5 of the top 15 snowiest winters on record have come in the last 10 years. It's global warming, man. The warmer temperatures throughout the year keep the water on the Great Lakes from freezing, giving rise to more lake effect snow throughout the whole winter.

At one point, around New Year's Day, it looked like Rochester was easily heading for a Top 10 winter for snowfall, and I was thinking 130-140" was a piece of cake. Looking at the forecast over the next 2 weeks, I'm wondering if 110" might be more realistic. We usually get 1 big storm in the first half of March, but I think that the storm from earlier in this week was that storm.

LOL @ global warming. We have always had lake effect here, always. What is funny is that you global warming hippies could not be honest claiming things would warm up, now saying it will get cold first. If we get a few rainy years you would blame that too. Regardles of weather you call it warming. Might try looking at the patterns of cold, warm and precipitation since records were started. I guess all these swings were global warning; hot, cold, wet, dry whatever so it works for you.

You may stick any additional snowfall (lake effect or otherwise) in your ear. By now I am sick and tired of it all. Come on Spring, come on Summer.

I like to listen to my Lionel Richie box set while watching the snowfall. The best time for this activity is Sunday mornings in the afternoon.
