We were holding in the 50s all morning...the sun poked out, and the temp, of course, soared at least 7 degrees in less than an hour in Sizzlercuse.

I know I'm an oddball, but I am looking forward to the 50s for highs the next week...if it holds. Seems like it often gets warmer as the long range gets closer... but 50s with the sunshine is delightful to me.

No more complaining from Rochester ever again. The new 30 year normals.

Do you believe that may have something to do with warmer winters -> less ice on the lake -> more lake effect snow?

Meanwhile our snowfall averages in the subtropics have dropped like a rock.

Quite possibly. Pittsburgh is another location where normal snowfall increased by several inches, and a fair portion of our snowfall is driven by the lakes. I’ll bet there are other more complex factors involved like storm tracks (that may also be affected by climate change).

It could be, but I don't think so. Syracuse has seen its averages decrease, so I would stay this is just a statistical anomaly for a 30 year period.

Not sure what’s more depressing, 8 hours of daylight and cloudy all day in November or 14.5 hours of daylight and cloudy all day in May. We’ve had some breaks here and there but clouds have been tough to budge lately.

The 2000s were massive snowfall years for Central NY.

I wish I was here then! I'll have to go and check what the general patterns were like in those winters. I know there were a few really big synoptic storms thrown in during that decade.

Buffalo was on a course about 8 years ago at this time to drop to a sub-90” 30 year normal. A couple significantly higher than average years and several average years kept us from that ignominy.

Granted I don't know how accurate these are for an area that has spotty spotters lol Pulaski has two but they tend to miss data..

Not much rain to report here, 0.17" since midnight.. Dreary with drizzle for the most part..We had a cheap midnight high with temps falling most of the morning, stuck in the mid 40s currently, winds out of the NW

I'm shocked our temp didn't rise more over the last 30 years with all the above normal temps we've been having. About .1 degrees every decade at current pace. Looks like 96-97 were quite cold years. The 2000-2030 update will likely see that average go way up unless we get some much colder air.

50s for HT's suck.  Good for nothing.  Looking forward to 100 degree heat.
