Syracuse Plows into the Snow Lead

We have another lead change (LC) after yesterdays totals were updated. Syracuse set a date record picking up 12.2 inches of the white fluffy stuff passing the old snow record of 8.8 inches that was set in 2000. Binghamton also set a date record piling up 9.1 inches of snow breaking their old record of 8.5 set in 2003 and moved into second place. Buffalo is reporting 5.8 inches, Rochester 5.2 and Albany isn't reporting at all :)

These are the stats as of yesterday and there is still a lot of inches to add to the city totals including the overnight snowfall. With the exception of Albany all of the Golden Snowball cities are above their normal snowfall averages and are blowing away last seasons totals. Pretty good numbers for the slow start that we all got off to. I'll get a late afternoon/evening update in when the new totals come out. I also did a late night update on the national snow contest last night and I am about to update the top 10. That contest is also getting pretty interesting and I'm liking the way the NY cities are looking right now :)

Have a great day all and take it slow on the slippery roads.

The lake effect snow machine is cranked up! Its officially another winter season in Syracuse. Keep the snow blower gas tank full and your winter road package in the trunk. Your 112 inches is on the way - lets hope that number doesn't get there before February 1st, as you don't need your golf season delayed due to spring floods. Post some pictures Patrick! We did get an inch here in Raleigh on Saturday and right on schedule Sunday, the sun came out and melted it all away. Our winter might be over before it even started.
Stay warm dude.
Cousins Pam and Mike!

Just woke up in Rochester, found at least another 6-8 on the ground with another 4-8 predicted today lol. Might not be enough for first, but wow did the lake effect machine crank into gear fast.

Hey Pam and Mike, Unfortunatly I'm the snow blower and I do try to stay fueled, lol. How are the temps there now. I see that cold pressure is reaching wayyy down to the south.

Anon, I'm hoping Rochester and Buffalo come in with some good numbers. I'll most likely post them between 5 - 7.

Anon2, you can find those totals at It's nice to see all of the GSB cities in the top 10 this early on :)

Anon, I heard something about what’s happening on the west coast a day or two ago may be moving our way with the winds coming from the west instead of the northwest. Most likely I'm wrong and I'm sure someone with more knowledge can answer this for ya :)

Thats aid I just got through shoveling in DaCuse and it was coming down at about 2 inches an hour.

I love your site and I tell people about it all the time. I live outside Syracuse, near the airport. I always wonder how much snow we got in a particular period, so I can compare with the prediction - for example, they predicted 4-8 overnight . . . where do I find out how much we got overnight? I've wandered around the NOAA site, but I can't find anything that reports it like that - e.g., 8 inches in the last 8 hours. Do you know where could I find this info?

Major storm possible on Sunday and Monday... Blizzard conditions for Rochester and Buffalo... possibly for Syracuse

Crazy to think we've already got over 25% of our yearly average snow here in Syracuse!

I usually go here to find the snow total reports:

Hi Danielle,
Sometimes it seems like it takes a bit of luck to find that information. If you go to the NWS office's website (in Syracuse's case that would be Binghamton ) and click on the Rain/Snow Reports link, that will get you at least in the right direction. Sometimes you need to click on a few earlier versions to find some stats like 6 hour snowfall and such. That also has information from unofficial spotters, so I sometimes find it interesting to see how much difference there is for a given storm.

Hope that helps!
