Good luck saying that title 5 times fast!
I posted this on goldensnowball.com, but I figured it would be worthwhile to have on here as well.
According to the National Weather Service, the storm produced the fourth highest snowfall totals in any four day period on record. Below are the top 4 four day totals, with the last date in the four day period in parenthesis.
44.6 inches (2/1/1966)
44.5 inches (3/14/1993)
44.3 inches (1/31/1966)
43.2 inches (12/8/2010)
I find it a bit interesting that the three higher amounts are all in the later portion of the season. So, in other words, this the highest amount of snow Syracuse has ever had in a four day period this early in the season.
It was also the 6th highest 5 day total, and the 5th highest 3 day total.
It snowed continuously from 6:16 AM December 4th to 8:10 AM December 8th. That’s a total of 97 hours and 54 minutes.
By the way, Winter has not officially begun yet. That’s December 21st, almost 2 weeks away.
On another note, I will try to get an update on the driest and wettest cities done this weekend. I fell a little bit behind with that lately, so I’ll try to make it up soon.
