Upstate New York celebrates winter every with a Golden Snowball Award. Five cities, Albany, Buffalo, Binghamton, Rochester and Syracuse are in competition. Normally Syracuse’s annual snowfall for the season is 123.8″ and we have won the award numerous times. However snowfall has been light this year for each of the five cities. Syracuse itself has had a shortfall of about 40″. The Snowball Award website reports that Syracuse’s total accumulation for the season is 84.3″. This means that Rochester with a total of 89.2 will the take the award for the 2019-2020 season.
In addition to these totals, another 2″-4″ is expected south of the city tomorrow afternoon. Normally we have about 4″ in April. So far we’ve accumulated 4.3″
