    NYC snowfall

    southern Brooklyn and Queens got 21" of snow in Feb 1961...the snow changed to sleet and freezing rain (mostly sleet) in the morning hours...I remember walking around the school yard near my house and seeing the sleet drifting...there was around 10" before the sleet and 10" after it changed back to snow on NW winds...Bensonhurst Brooklyn measured 21.0" from 3.05 LE...no mention of sleet...Even in NYC climate data no sleet is mentioned which is odd...The snow was like cement...there was 7" on the ground from two weeks of below freezing high temperatures and numerous snowfalls when it started...28" snow depth midnight 2/4...The temp finally went above freezing briefly when the storm ended late in the afternoon...this broke the 16 straight days with a max 32 or lower...still the record in NYC...
