The new snow stats have finally come in and we have a new leader for the first time in awhile. Syracuse was able to tap into the Lake Effect snow this time round and managed to break the old record for todays date 4/2 picking up 10.5 inches of the white fluffy gold breaking the old date record of 1.4 set back in 1991. They may have a shot at breaking their snow totals record for the month of April which I believe is 16.4 back in 1983 if it continues for a day or two.
Here is an article that came out today by Sean Kirst who is a great journalist for the Post Standard and Syracuse.com in the Syracuse and surrounding areas about the national snow contest.
Now it is up to Erie and Worcester to catch Syracuse, the new king of the snow mountain. Both cities were reporting just a trace this last update which included just the top 3 cities. Here in Da’Cuse it’s been light snow most of the day but it looks like one of the lake effect bands are just starting to kick in again as it’s coming down pretty good.
I have to say that this season has been the most exciting and closest one that I can remember since the snow contest started Let’s go Erie and Worcester, keep it close to the end. I’ll try and get a full or at least a top 10 update done in the next day or two.
Have a GREAT Week All!!
