Syracuse's Snowless Streak Ends

Syracuse hasn't been able to have an inch at a time fall this season . That is up until yesterday when 1.1 inches of snow fell. The second longest snow less streak on record.

I think the last time Syracuse seen and inch of snow was on February 27th. According to Sean Kirst at . Last season we sled past the old record going 287 days without an inch. This season Syracuse went 280 days I believe without an inch of snow falling in a day. Syracuse better be careful because we may just lose our Farmers Almanac's #1 ranking for the worst winter city in the US
That said it's been snowing off and on all day and at least 3 inches so far in my neck of the woods. Right now Onondaga and Madison county are under a Lake Effect snow warning until 7am so get up a little early tomorrow to clean off the cars and the driveways. I was watching th radar off and on today and it looked like Rochester was under a good snowband.

Anyone have any info on what's going on in the other GSB cities?

It's too bad we can't somehow average out the Syracuse-area snowfall. I'm in Marcellus, 20 min SE of Syracuse, and we have had at least 15-18" since Saturday morning and it's still coming down hard! I guess we have to take the measurements somewhere, but the airport is often so much lower than the surrounding areas like here.

We have picked up about 10" today in the ROC! Will update in the am..

I live in Rochester about two miles east of the airport, and we have had at least three fairly heavy bands move through today, and I'd say at least 4-6 on the ground here, and they say its' supposed to keep going ! Rochester is off to a decent second place start.

On a side note, I agree with Holly's remark about averaging the snowfall for the five cities. Select 5 or 6 relatively evenly spaced points focused around the downtown area and average them all together. I feel this would give a far more representative tally for all the Golden Snowball cities.

Uh, are you kidding?

The Syracuse airport totals are almost ALWAYS higher than the rest of the area. If anything, it gives the Cuse a huge "advantage" over Rochester and Buffalo whose airports are actually located in the least snowy areas of town.

Hey, look at that! The Over/Under on when the debate for changing the measurement rules and locations was set at December 10th. I took the Under, looks like I win!

On a more serious note, the reason why the airports are chosen for here is because they are the official readings. Had the official measurements been taken at the Carrier Dome (as an example), then the Carrier Dome readings would have been used here. There just aren't any other reliable sources at this time.

One thing I might keep track of this season is a percentage from average calculation, just to get an idea of how much more (or less) snow the cities have. Of course, I also wanted to keep track of precipitation stats over on, and that hasn't worked out so well.
