Throwback Thursday

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Snow falls in March in Central New York. We also get snow in April. and there have been sightings of snowflakes on Mother’s Day.

But the snowfall we received on March 13 & 14 of 1993 was like nothing we’d experienced in any winter storm.

We have several videos for you to mark the anniversary. At right, we have some clips from the NewsChannel 9 archives of scenes shot around Central New York during the storm.

At left, Chief Meteorologist Jim Teske talks to localsyr.com reporter Lou Gulino about the storm, and the new technology that helped give us an early warning.

And at right we go back into the archives for a report Chief Meteorologist Jim Teske put together in 2013 on the 20th anniversary of the Blizzard of ’93.
