How much rain fell this week? What if it was snow?

Weather

(Pixabay)

A very strong nor’easter developed Monday night through Tuesday just off the Northeast coast of the United States and delivered record amounts of rainfall for some, including the Syracuse area on Tuesday. 2.33 inches of rainfall was recorded on Tuesday, October 26 in Syracuse breaking the old record of 1.51″ set back on 1943!

How much snow would that be?

A lot of you have asked. To put that amount of rainfall into perspective, if it was 25 degrees colder that amount of rainfall assuming a 10 to 1 ratio, snow to rain, there would have been nearly two feet of snow!!

There was flooding in CNY with that much water falling from the sky

The roughly 1.5 to 2.5 inches of rainfall that fell in those 24 to 36 hours produced some significant flooding Tuesday and Tuesday night for many in Central New York. Some of the flood warnings are still in effect for parts of the area even now. Check out the latest flood warnings, and to see some of the pictures click here.

Tuesday’s deluge brought the October rainfall amounts for the month into the top 5 for Syracuse!

Below are some of the rainfall amounts from storm courtesy of the National Weather Service in Buffalo and Binghamton.
