Admit it.  So far our central New York winter hasn't been much of a winter. And, statistics back up the fact that this is one of the mildest winters in quite a while.

According to our sister station, WIBX:

"In what has been deemed by the National Weather Service as the mildest winter since 2001, the lack of snowfall has raised eyebrows.

Higher than average temperatures have kept the snow from sticking around, but according to Dave Nicosia with the National Weather Service in Binghamton, the light winter is somewhat of a reprieve from last year.

“In the Syracuse area, 27.6 inches of snow has fallen in the area this year, 41.3 inches below normal,” Nicosia said. “This time last year, 111.8 inches had fallen. So last year, we were about 40 inches or so above normal at this time, and this year, we’re 40 inches below normal.”
