Storm and Lake Effect Snow 11/21/2016

It’s still snowing pretty good right now and there are several travel advisories ou so check with your NWS or local meteorologists for the latest weather reports.

Here is a recent look at the NWS radar at around 2:00 PM today. It looks like a mix of some pretty intense lake effect snow bands coming off of Lake Ontario

  • along with some snow falling still from the snow storm. Look how far south they are reaching.

    Lake Effect Snow and Snow Storm Argos

    The Winter snow storm that has been named Argos by TWC has been dropping a lot of snow in the Upstate and Central New York areas along with some pretty gusty winds. After reading around I am seeing some reports of snow totals approaching close to 3 feet of snow.

    According to some tweets on Twitter and one by Carolyn Yerdon who keeps everyone up to date with the snow totals in Redfield, New York, they are up to about 32 inches and the snow is still falling.

    Stay tuned for another update later this evening when the new snow stats are reported by our NWS :) As always, if you See Snow – Drive Slow! Of course, if you are on a sled, go for it! Have a Great Day everyone!

  • Snowiest Top 5 Cities in the United States 2015 – 2016

    Here it November 6th and we finally have a Top 5 list for the snowiest Big cities in the nation. The current list would have been from the end of the day on the 5th for most of the cities in the Golden Snow Globe contest.

    Anchorage, Alaska continues to add to their lead and added another inch of snow since the last update. It seems like Anchorage either gets quite a bit of snow or next to nothing each season. Anchorage did win the snow contest back in the 2011 – 2012 snow season with 134.5 inches of snow.

    Snowiest US Cities with Snow

    Denver, Colorado slipped past Syracuse, New York picking up an inch of snow since the last update. That was the measurable snow for Denver this season. Syracuse is stuck at 0.4 inches right now and I’m sure that the temperatures being in the 70′s in the northeast has something to do with that. Record temps have been set the last few days for several cities in the northeast and I’m guessing they are in no hurry to stop breaking them.

    Rochester, Minnesota remains in 4th place at 0.2 inches and the other newcomer to receive snow this season besides Denver is Cleveland, Ohio which is showing 0.1 inches so far for the 2015 – 2016 snow season. Welcome to the new snow season Denver and Cleveland. Cleveland’s snow may be an adjustment or an error because they weren’t showing snow as of the last update so that may change.

    Golden Snow Globe Cities Below Average Snow

    Almost all of the cities in the National Golden Snow Globe contest are below their average snowfall for this date, but I don’t expect that to last much longer. Remember, the National snow contest is for cities with a population of 100,000 or more as of the 2010 census. If you know of a Big city that we may be missing that has snow already this season then feel free to add a comment to this post and let me know ;)

    Updated 3/30 6 PM - Looks like all of the totals are in from this last blast of snow. The snowfall totals from the storm below were updated from earlier.

    So here is the lowdown on the top 3 cities right now. Erie leads Syracuse by 5.5 inches and leads Buffalo by 8.4 inches. Still a 3 way race ;)

    Syracuse’s lead over Buffalo, NY has been melted down to just 2.9 inches now. Man is it close and stay tuned!
    —————————————-

    3/30 3 PM - Erie, PA, Buffalo, NY and Rochester, NY all got some snow and a decent amount of it for this time in the season. So far nothing is being reported for 2nd place Syracuse. I know, there is still more snow to add to the snow totals and I’ll get a top 10 update in later on when The National Weather Service comes out with the next update. Here is what they are reporting total from this last blast of snowfall.

    Erie, PA – 4.0 inches
    Buffalo, NY – 5.6 inches
    Rochester, NY – 8.6 inches
    Cleveland – 5 inches (Broke into top 10)
    Syracuse, NY – Notta, Null, Zip, Zero, 0.00 – They must have forgotten to measure the snow before the airplanes took off :(

    A couple of things stand out from this last blast other than Erie adding to the lead that is. Buffalo is definitely in striking distance now of taking over 2nd place and perhaps even storming to the top to take the grand prize. Oh yeah, the grand prize of a virtual trophy or something plus a virtual pat on the back for a job well done of course ;)

    Rochester is closing in on 4th place and should only be a few inches away from Grand Rapids, MI when the next update comes out from what I have heard and read. Even if Rochester doesn’t take over the 4th place spot they gave themselves a pretty good lead over Billings, Montana now and look pretty secure at finishing in the top 5 this season. Maybe Billings has something to say about that though.

    I’m loving how this contest is playing out this season and it’s going to be a little bit sad when Syracuse pulls out the Lake Effect Dance like last year and goes snows to the top like last season. I will sincerely feel bad for Erie and the friends I have made from there the last couple of seasons ;) Stay Tuned!!!

    Have a Great Day All :)

    The snowiest city in the United States is still a tight snow race and could be right down until the last snow flake falls. Syracuse managed to get just enough snow and t wasn’t much to hold off Erie, Pa to remain King of the Snow Mountain since the last update. Worcester, Mass is still right behind the both of them and don’t count out Rochester, NY yet either. They have been slowly sneaking up on everyone the last few weeks.

    One announcement to make is that a snow dance has been done in the Syracuse area :) I felt that the time was right and with the low snow totals we have so far in the Syracuse area it was well overdue also. It normally takes around 2 – 3 days for it to start having any effect on the weather so we’ll wait and see what happens. I suggest someone from Erie and the other cities also try a snow dance if you want to keep up ;) We also have a Snow God which resides in the Fairmount area which is just outside of the city and I’ve been informed that it has been awaken and the light is shining. I have a picture somewhere of it and I’ll post it if I can find it.

    Keep in mind where are many weather dances and you could be putting your entire city at risk :( A few years back one of our visitors to our sister site the www.goldensnowball.com  contest decided to try a dance. Well all hell broke out when instead of heavy snow or a snowstorm, high winds hit the city of Buffalo knocking down trees and knocking out power to thousands. True story, lol. So You Have Been Warned!

    Have a Great Weekend All…

    I just updated all the cities and every time I do I keep expecting to see some of the Colorado cities move up. What’s going on??? Come on Denver, lets go Pueblo and Lakewood! It’s not looking pretty when even Richmond Virginia has more snow than you do. I think last season you were in the national snow contest for most of the season. Fort Collins is the only city out of Colorado that is beating Richmond. OK, the season has just begun but……

    Syracuse continues to be the news and in the news as a matter of fact. The snow continues to fly and they may break the record today for their snowiest December on record which is 70.3 set back in 2000. So far for December 66.1 inches of the white fluffy stuff has fallen. Not too bad considering we are only half way through the month. If it keeps up they also have a shot at beating the record for the snowiest month ever in Da Cuse which is 78.1 back in January 2004.

    Rochester, NY is also chasing their record for the snowiest December and need just a couple of inches to do it. The current record is 46.2 set back in 2008. Right now they are at 44.2 inches for December.

    Don’t forget about last season’s weather. Remember some of the big Nor Easters that came nonstop. Syracuse and Rochester may have a jump start but that’s just what it is, just the start of the 1010 – 2011 snow season.

    Have an Awesome day all :)
