southern Brooklyn averages less snow than Central Park...I lived on 64ST which was in the SW part and we always changed to rain before the city...I remember many times this happened...This leads to less snow on average...I measured around 48" in 1993-94...5" less than CP...1995-96 I had 72"...CP had 76"...the Feb. 1995 storm changed to rain at least an hour before the city and I ended up with 8" while the city got 11"...

why does Harriman seem to jackpot all the time? There are places with better elevation nearby, no?

It truly is amazing how from Harriman to Woodbury ( Central Valley, Highland Mills) & Monroe jackpot EVERY single time. True def. of a microclimate. Its no secret in Orange County..

A weenie observer there?


In all seriousness, it might have to do with the relative surrounding terrain too. There are areas west of me at similar elevation, but definitely get less snow overall due to downsloping.
