Snowier Winter Predicted for Central New York
Break out the skis and the shovel. Looks like it's going to be a snowy Winter in central New York; snowier than normal.
The AccuWeather forecast calls for more snow than normal in the Northeast with "January threatening to bring the coldest air of the season."
“Areas in the I-95 corridor will average close to normal, within a few inches,” AccuWeather Lead Long-Range Forecaster Paul Pastelok said. “Areas away from the I-95 corridor have a better chance at a big snowfall.”
The AccuWEather forecast answers the question of which Almanac's Winter prediction was right. The Farmer's Almanac said snowy and colder while the OLD Farmer's Almanac predicted a warmer Winter.
“I think this year is going to bring a good ski season in the Northeast,” Pastelok said. “And around the holidays we should have some snow for the interior Northeast.”
Snow in central New York is just another Winter day. Just as long as we don't have a repeat to Stella, that dumped anywhere from 25 to 42 inches of snow in 24 hours, bringing central New York to a stand still.
