A snowstorm passes to our east again, but bitterly cold air will not avoid us this weekend.
New England gets slammed with snow on Friday while CNY enjoys the sunshine.
Another mild day in the dead of winter
A one hundred and thirty year tradition was continued this morning in Punxutawney, PA as Phil did not see his shadow. This is actually a rare occasion as the groundhog has seen his shadow 102 times. Does this actually mean an early spring? Well at least for tomorrow. Weather looks quiet today with mostly cloudy skies, maybe a few peeks of sun this afternoon.
Looking at the odds of big snowfall events in a typical winter season
Outside of the winter of 2011-2012, I do not recall a winter where there were more days with green grass on the ground than snow. As of January 27th, the official seasonal snowfall total stands at 14.8". That is just about the amount of snow that should have fallen by December 12th. This puts our deficit at 40" for the season. How does this stack up with years in the past?
All eyes have been on the potential for a Nor'easter impacting the east coast this weekend. Now that we are getting closer to the Friday and Saturday, the track of the storm is pretty much set in stone. And it does not include Central NY
Our latest lake effect snow event is beginning diminish across Central NY, with some light snow continuing in Madison and Chenango Counties. The band did not wobble as much as orginally forecasted and pretty much set up over the Thruway for most of yesterday. Here are the latest snowfall totals:
More snow looks to return to CNY!
