Shot In The Dark Forecasts: January 2011
It has been a quiet start to 2011, but those in the GSB areas know that can change pretty quickly. Rochester and Syracuse broke December records, so this month's focus will be on the other three cities: Albany, Binghamton and Buffalo, which also happen to hold the bottom three spots in the current standings.
Buffalo (33.6 inches) and Binghamton (33.2 inches) are just shy of the three foot mark, while Albany (13 inches) is just above one foot, for the season. I am expecting January to provide a bit more snowfall for each city.
Bull's Eye: Albany, Binghamton and Buffalo will at least double their current snowfall totals by month's end.
On Target: 2 of the three double their current snowfall totals.
Complete Miss: 1 or fewer double their current snowfall totals.
In other words, if Buffalo gets 33.6 inches, Binghamton gets 33.2 inches and Albany gets 13 inches in January, that will be a Bull's Eye. Two of them getting the respective threshold will be On Target while 1 or fewer will be a Complete Miss.
