New York’s Snowless Winter: A Record-Tying Absence
New York City has been waiting for the first measurable snowfall of the season for 50 years, tying a record.
The absence of snow has left residents feeling grateful, wistful, and worried.
New York City is close to reaching two snow-related milestones, with the latest first measurable snow and the longest streak of consecutive days without measurable snow.
The last time it snowed in New York City was on March 22nd.
New York City is more than a month behind its average pace for snowfall.
The relatively warm start to the winter is due in part to a La Niña that has now lasted three consecutive years.
Syracuse, known for being one of America's snowiest cities, has only received 25 inches of snow this winter.
Meanwhile, nearby Rochester has received fewer than 15 inches, compared to its typical 50 inches by this time.
Buffalo is experiencing one of its snowiest winters, with around half of this season's snow falling during a single deadly blizzard.
