Updated 1/27 11 AM - It looks like it was a bust for NYC as far as the snow totals go from this storm but several of the other cities are getting pounded pretty good. I’ve been talking to a couple of my nieces around the Boston area and they said it’s pretty snowy there but of course being from Syracuse they are loving it and were getting ready to bring their kids out to play in the snow for a bit.

I heard from another friend who is in the Worcester area and she said over 2 feet of snow so far and counting. If that’s the case and it’s close to the unofficial totals I am seeing then Erie, Pa, Buffalo, NY and Grand Rapids may want to start making some snowballs to fend Worcester’s challenge to the top of the snow mountain off ;) Syracuse and South Bend might as well stay out of this snowball fight and save their energy for the next storm because chances are come the next update a little later Worcester will be ahead of them.

The snow storm is still going on and expected to continue throughout the day. I’m like a little kid at Christmas waiting for the next snow stats from NOAA to be posted. I’ll get an update in when the official snow stats come out later. Stay Tuned and Stay Safe if you’re in the storms path…

Updated 1/26 – 10 PM - Here is a latest snow totals map put out by The National Weather Service. Looks like snow totals are still way up there. Stay Safe All!

Updated 1/26 7 PM – New snow stats have been updated for all of the cities. I updated the current radar images from the National Weather Service around 4 PM. Just click on the animation for the most current radar showing where the storm is and where it is going
Several of the snowiest cities in the national snow contest are under blizzard warnings and winter storm warnings as of this morning, Monday – 1/26/2015. I will be keeping some of the updates from the National Weather Service posted in this post as they come in. Keep in mind that this is not a news site but just a fun snow site meaning go to the pros for your current weather conditions and what is in the forecast for your area. Take this storm seriously and if you are in the blizzard warning areas you may want to stay home when it hits ;)

No doubt it will be interesting to see where NYC, Boston, Worcester, Newark and some of the other cities end up when this winter storm is done dumping snow. See below for links to information on the storm from the National Weather Service. Here are snow totals for some of the cities before the storm and what place they were in. Let’s see if they climb the snow mountain ;)

I’ll be posting a lot more information right here as it is reported including snow totals and so on. If you have any info to share from your area please leave a comment in this post with your info and Thanks. Stay Safe All and Stay Tuned ;)

First as always I wanted to say Thanks to Jennifer T. for taking the time to make a donation to the site. I’m sure money is tight this time of the year with the holidays upon us. Thank You Jennifer, I do really appreciate it :)
Updated 8 PM - All of the cities were just updated. Unfortunately there were quite a few not reporting the new snowfall from the storm. There was quite a bit of shuffling and a couple of the cities finally managed to get on the snow board such as Baltimore, MD. I’m guessing there will be a lot more shuffling around come the next update.

3 of the cities so far have set a date record for snowfall even though it wasn’t a lot fo snow being reported. Allentown, Pa set a date record with 3.1 inches so far breaking the old record of 1.7 inches set way back in 1925. Newark, NJ set a date record for snowfall with 1.4 inches beating the old record of 9.1 set in 1955 and Hartford, CT broke theirs with 1.3 inches beating the old record of 0.4 set in 1985.

The biggest mover this update which had nothing to do with the Nor’easter was Madison, Wisconsin who jumped up 19 spots on the snow mountain from being in 29th place to the number 10 slot now. WTG Madison ;) Stay Tuned!


Update 5 PM - I am starting an update with the new storm snow stats. Should be out in a bit ;)

OK, it looks like it’s going to be an interesting 24 hours or so as far as this snow storm on the East coast goes. It also looks like it may be a chance for some of the cities to catch up a little bit. I don’t think we will see any big snow totals like what we saw in the towns around the Buffalo area but I’m guessing there will be some changes in the top 10 after this first Nor’easter of the season goes through.

Is it snowing where YOU are? Drop a comment here if you have some time and let us know what it’s doing in your neck of the woods.

A couple of pictures from a friend in Milford, Pa from the Snow Storm

Grand Rapids remains the king of the snow mountain still and looks to be safe for now anyways. Erie is only a couple of ropes away from them though and remember, they still have the bragging rights from being crowned snow champs last season. I saw a clip of some snow falling in Billing, Montana earlier and they are way overdue to start making a move. Then again I keep forgetting it’s only November because of all of the snowfall that has fallen already this soon in the season for some of the snowiest cities in the US.

This could be a chance for cities like Philadelphia, Boston, Worcester, Maybe New York City, Baltimore and Washington DC to get their snow season going. I think, and remember I am always clueless, that it’s going to all come down to the temperatures for the cities south of DC. Below are a couple of radars of what it looked like before I went to bed last night/this morning ;) Just click on either one and it will bring you to the live radar and to the National Weather Service site for the most recent updates. Please drive careful in this Thanksgiving Eve Day snow storm if you are traveling. No doubt the highways and roads will be nasty toward the north.

The storm seems to be moving a little closer to my hometown Syracuse but I don’t think they are going to have more than a few inches unless it shifts inland more. Right now I am visiting my Grandson Corbin in North Carolina and it’s been nothing but heavy rain off and on for about the last 12 hours or so. It looks like that may finally be coming to an end :)

Have an Awesome Day All :)

Just a heads up for our visitors and the Media. The snow contest lives on after the first day of Spring whether we like it or not :(

To my good friends in Erie, PA, remember I am just the scorekeeper, don’t hurt me. You may have noticed that You lost an inch.  If not all is good then :)   Well you did and you went from 130.4 to 129.4.  I noticed sometime a week or so ago when I was doing an update that Erie snuck in an inch on the rest of us.  I figured it was a couple of days since I did an update at that time and didn’t think much of it.  For some reason this last update that inch has gone missing.  I know what you are all thinking.  Sure an inch just ups and melts away and the scorekeeper just happens to be from Syracuse ;)   Nah, this has nothing to do with me so don’t start loading the buses up to come throw snowballs at me and my house :(

This is all The National Weather Service and it does happen from time to time during the season.  Just think of all the numbers they are crunching and inputting to their system several times a day.  It’s happened several times to some of the cities in the middle but I normally don’t bring it up.  Because the snow race is so close I figured I better explain it ;)   Keep in mind this could have been an adjustment to a mistake made when they added the inch of snow or it could just be a mistake was made yesterday and Erie will get that inch back.  I guess we will have to wait and see what happens.  I think just having to talk about that inch of snow shows how close the National Snow Contest is :)

A lot of the cities most likely will still receive snow after the first day of Spring starts. The closer the contest the longer we tend to drag it on and this season is about as close as it can get with under an inch of snow separating Erie, PA and Syracuse, NY. Most likely both of those cities along with several others will be getting more snow. Last season was a good example where if we would have called it the first day of Spring we would have called it wrong as to which city was the snowiest. Syracuse ended up getting something like 10.5 inches around April 2nd. Here is how the end of last season pretty much played out.

Have an Awesome Day!
