Updated 2/11/15 10:00 am - I just wanted to give a heads up that with the storms hitting the North East US the last couple of weeks most likely there will be more cities being added to the National Snow Contest. I have been getting some emails and comments letting me know about cities that were previously not in the contest.
Keep in mind that there are I’m sure hundreds of cities with a population of 100,000 or more that do get snow. Not all of them can be added nor should they be added. That said with the unusual pattern we are in there are some new cities that have been getting pounded by snow and will most likely make the Top 25 list.
The problem right now for me is going to be trying to figure out most likely by calling some of the National Weather Service’s stations for each city to see if the snow stats are official or not. Soooo in other words it’s going to take some time to get the info and put it all together I think until then we should keep everything as UNOFFICIAL for now OK, it’s not like it hasn’t always been like that I suppose
IF YOU have or know of a city with a population of 100,000 or more as of the 2010 census that has enough snow right now to make it into the Top 30 snowiest cities on our list please feel free to help us out. Keep in mind that as good as the National Weather Service is Not all of the cities report the statistics for their snowfall. Thanks and Stay Tuned..
I just updated the snow stats and switched it back to the current snow totals and what they should be on this date in the season. What stands out big time is that Both Worcester, Mass and Boston are both 50 plus inches over where they should be this time in the season. Pretty impressive IMO and WTG.
Almost all of the cities in the Top 25 are ever their normal (If there is such a thing) snowfall on the date this season. Syracuse, NY also stands out being the only city in the Top 10 snowiest cities in the country to be under their averages and they are under by more than a foot of snow.
I added Manchester, New Hampshire to the contest today and with the way the storms are going there will be probably more to add. I had some suggestions to add a couple more cities but unfortunately I couldn’t come across any official snow stats on the National Weather Service website. Right now I am seeing a couple different totals for Manchester at the NOAA site and I will try and straighten out what is going on when I get a chance. That is why the question mark is there after their totals.
Have a Great Night Everyone
