December 2023 in New York City Metro Posted 2 hours ago 31 minutes ago, Brian5671 said: .9 at the park. Before that you had to go back to Feb 2022 to find a snowfall more than 1" there. PHL is even worse. Over time I believe it will become increasingly difficult to see snowfalls of 1” or more in NYC. This won’t be solely caused by global warming either. I used to work in Manhattan back in the first decade. I worked in midtown near 34th and 9th Avenue. In a borderline event with wet snow I would routinely walk from 9th to 8th Avenues and the snow would turn to rain due to the urban heat island effect. You could walk down some streets and see snow falling at the rooftops and rain at street level. Now that West Side Yards has been built I am sure that is no longer possible. That brings me to my point. There are currently plans for what are known as “Supertalls” all over Manhattan and the other nearby boroughs. Investors are buying up properties and tearing down what is there in order to construct these enormous buildings. NYC is well on its way to having into the hundreds of these 800’ to 1000’ buildings throughout the city. I think by 25-50 years or so there will only be snow in Manhattan with the most intense/cold storms. I believe that this man made mountain range will have other effects in the region that have yet to be seen or determined.
