Seems like a good storm overall. This map looks pretty accurate to me. Can anyone else confirm via ground observations?

 They miss Madison County by a good 8-10" ... And it's still going in the higher elevations.

We got way more than that here in Skaneateles and it’s still snowing.

is there any kind of precedent for this type of East Coast storm with the highest totals apparently in the Finger Lakes?

Oh yeah! Like half of them. Super common. Just so little population you’d never know.

That map is actually generous for my location. I’m right where I81 crosses the border between Onondaga and Oswego counties (just above the “c” in Syracuse) so it’s easy to find me. I measured 7.2 inches for the entire event, about half of the city of Syracuse.

Repost what I remember about my calls:

Buf-3

Roc-8

Syr-19

Ithaca-14

Bing-13

NYC-26

Really like Syracuse for this. Maybe somewhere between Syracuse and ROC. 8” for Roc is west side airport. I think eastern suburbs make a run at 12. But huge bust potential for anywhere N/NW of Finger Lakes. 

I’ll take it.

Well the highest totals were in New Jersey and PA. Finger lakes didn't jackpot they did really well. The top analog had central NY as jackpot zone though from CIPS.

I forget that CIPS is a really helpful tool. This was a weird storm though. Different locations got their snow at very different times. The finger lakes totals were separated by 24 hours from the big down state totals. Blocking!

Kuchera totals were too low. Maybe a first? 

I think ratios were higher than expected. Over 2 foot drifts in places here. I measured average depth at around 17 inches. I think 3 of those inches were snow depth before the storm if I remember correctly so 14 inch storm total.

Yeah I meant just New York. I remember a storm when I lived in Buffalo (Miller B, not LES) - was pretty late in March of 2010, 2011, 2012 maybe? - that dumped about 2 feet there.

What part of Buffalo did you live in?

Yeah not the best spot for snow in Buffalo. Only a few big LES events in that spot.

most of the time I saw the bands, and sometimes the lightning, just to my south. Very frustrating at times :(

We had about a foot fall here in the Bville area overnight and this morning. The best rates and flake size occurred AFTER the warning was dropped at 5 am. lol...

Good for you.  I think I ended up in last place in the Syracuse portion of this forum with just 2.6 inches in over 12 hours. Had decent returns over me all night but only had light snow at the surface.

That 1.8 at KBUF is about 3” too low

Wow...downsloping was a killer. It looked like you and the Southeastern quarter of Oswego county were gipped by this one. I guess it often evens out...as you guys were the winners several times already this winter. The true WINNERS this year have been those in Southern Onondaga county over to Madison county. It's been quite the higher elevation winter.
