Sore thumb is right. Only 2 of the past 11 winters have had below avg snowfall here....2015-16 was 8" below avg and 2011-12 was 17" below avg (at least DTW got 26"...i recall some east coast places were in single digits!). If thats not sticking out like a sore thumb idk what is!

lol I looked at Islip, NY's snowfall tally in the NY subforum thread and Islip has had 36 or more inches of snow in 9 out of the last 10 seasons and 42 or more inches of snow in 8 out of the last 10 seasons.  The one year out of the last 10 when they didn't get to three feet of snow was 2011-12 when the total there was only 5.5"!

1866-67 was big in the NYC area...some records from 1872...

Thanks I used to research old snowstorms at the library using microfilm/microfiche back in the 90s lol.  100 inches of snow that year maybe? I think we have almost gotten there in a 12 month period with some of our blockbuster winters lately if you combine different parts of 2 seasons.

That winter was trash everywhere. I was in Ithaca and the biggest storm was 6" of concrete in late April. That February was also the warmest I ever experienced prior to this year's.

It goes in the pantheon of failure, along with 1972-73, 1997-98, 2001-02.  All of those winters had less than 6 inches of snow for us.

2007-08: 78.2"

2008-09: 64.8"

2009-10: 46.1"

2010-11: 69.3"

2011-12: 25.5"

2012-13: 47.7"

2013-14: 96.2"

2014-15: 48.5"

2015-16: 35.0"

2016-17: 41.6"

2017-18: 62.5"

 

I think the fact that it was basically 1 dud surrounded by good winters made it more tolerable. Avg is around 43"

1972-73 and 2001-02 actually did ok snow wise here but were very warm winters. 1972-73 was actually a few inches above avg.

Haha I think we are going to LOVE this winter, Jer!

 

This storm is already overperforming here on the south shore of Long Island, very heavy snow sticking to everything including roads and my pond has been frozen over since this morning

2002-03 was a much better winter for sure. 2001-02 managed 43" from several good storms thrown in but the ground was never covered for more than a week at a time. 2002-03 had 67" and was wayyyyy colder.

I have to pinch myself to remind me it’s 11/15 and not the middle of January...

6 inches of heavy wet snow this reminds me a bit of the storm after Sandy.

Both were completely unexpected and caught the roads people unprepared.  From Twitter

People called us @WCBS880, saying they’ve been sitting still on the George Washington Bridge approaches and elsewhere for more than 5 hours. They are demanding answers for rightful reasons. How does 6 inches of snow paralyze NY and NJ? Disgraceful. @NJTRANSIT bad on a good day.

That was our last wall to wall winter that I remember being great for everyone, hopefully this one will be similar.

The city was shut down tonight from a 6 inch snowstorm that fell during rush hour.  And I just heard thunder outside lol.

I read on Twitter where euro seasonal December is cold in the latest release.  

I was confused about Ben's post. Is there a mid month update or is it the same stuff from the early November forecast?
