  1. two analogs that might be good for this year are 1956-57 and 1984-85... NYC got 13" of snow on December 21-22 1959 but it wasn't a KU event...it was a localized event...

  14. nothing like a major storm with a foot or more of snow with temperatures in the teens and single digits and near ten as the storm ends...not to mention strong winds...Dec 1960, Jan 1961, Jan 1964 and Feb 67 were storms in that category...2004 and 2014 had cold snowstorms but not like those 1960's storms...Jan 1965 had a 5" event with a max of 17...Jan 2018 was the last time a cold wave followed a major storm...the storm itself was in the 20's when snow was falling...
  15. 1995-96, 2010-11 and last year were pretty good...
  16. so far this winter is full of stuff nobody cares about...
  17. there is actually a site called stuff nobody cares about and it has some weather records in there... Stuff Nobody Cares About - A not so random collection of observations about things you should care about
  18. under the heading stuff nobody cares about I found a discrepancy for the December 1947 big storm and the total monthly snowfall...I have almanacs showing Central Park getting 26.4" on December 26th-27th 1947...the final monthly snowfall was 29.6" for the most ever in December...I checked the latest snowfall table for Central Park and its 30.2" in December 1947...the original local climate data has 25.8" for the storm and 29.6" for the month......
