Updated 12/11 7:30 PM - Lots of changes in the top 5 snowiest cities in the US. Buffalo continues to move up and Erie slipped down a spot on the snow mountain to #3. Grand Rapids continues to wear the crown as the King of the Mountain at the top but I think their snow days are numbered
Both Erie, Pa and Buffalo, NY are less than a couple of inches though of taking over the top spot from Grand Rapids. Syracuse and Rochester, New York round out the top 5 snowiest cities so far for the 2014 – 2015 snow season. I have a feeling that we may have a new leader come tomorrow morning. Any guesstimates on which city will lead come the next update
Updated 12/11 Noon - Grand Rapids, Michigan and Erie, Pa have held off the cities from New York. So far that is Syracuse, NY managed to snow into the number 3 spot on the snow mountain passing Buffalo, NY but both Buffalo and Syracuse have gained on the Top 2 snowiest cities. Rochester, NY also continues to add to their snow totals moving them up a bit.
Syracuse is just a little more than an inch of snow away from taking the number 2 spot from Erie. Stay tuned because the overnight snow stats haven’t been reported yet by The National Weather Service so there will be more changes come the next update later on in the day. I think either Syracuse or Buffalo will hold the number 2 spot before the day is over. I also think Grand Rapids is still safe but be worried my friends in Erie, Be very worried Stay Tuned!
Updated 12/10 8 PM – It’s snowing in Syracuse, New York and they are still climbing the snow mountain and Rochester is on the move too. Part 2 of snow storm Damon is has been dropping snow on Da’Cuse today and it looks like Rochester is getting in on it also. So far as of yesterday Syracuse is showing close to 8 inches of new snowfall and Rochester is showing a few inches.
Syracuse has slid into 4th place in the National snowiest big city contest and Rochester, NY has moved into the top 10. It may be time for Erie, Pa to start making some snowballs to try and hold back Syracuse from taking the number 2 slot away from them. I think Grand Rapids, Michigan is probably safe for now unless the storm starts up some lake effect snow when it pulls out of the area. Gonna be interesting come the next update
Well the snow is finally falling in CNY and it looks like Rochester may be getting in on the fun and maybe Buffalo too. The roads are slick so take it slow. Because of the temperatures the snow got a later start than I think was expected so we’ll have to wait and see how this blast of snow helps out the cities in New York.
I don’t see Syracuse climbing to the top but they may have a shot at climbing up to the top 5 slot on the snow mountain. I’ll post updates as they are posted by The National Weather Service. I just got an update in for all of the snowiest cities and will get at least a top 25 update in later today.
Any snow in your neck of the woods???
