Snow woes continue for now…

Many, even those who don’t like the snow, have been wondering where’s the snow and consistent cold?? By the middle of January, halfway point of meteorological winter, Syracuse has on average typically picked up nearly 60 inches of snow. This winter, just like the last few, we’ve only seen a measly 28.6″, or close to four feet below normal in Syracuse, and over 8 inches under last winter at this time which only yielded 76″ of snow!!

Where do we rank among the least snowiest Januarys on record?

Well… we were in first place since 1949 through the January 29th.

Then, on January 30th, 0.9″ of snow fell at the airport and brought our monthly total to 8.5″. This knocked us out of the top spot dropping just below January 2017’s 8.4″ as the least snowiest January on record.

We have one more snowy last day of January to tack on a a little bit more snow, so we’ll see where things land as we turn the calendar over to February on Wednesday.
