Boy, what a week!!

Posted March 31st, 2006 by Amanda Gabeler. 4 comments

The weather this week was absolutely spectacular!! A strong dome of high pressure has been in control of our weather here in Central New York since Monday. This has led to the sunny skies, and quite the warming trend! No records were set in Utica,... Continue reading…

Is it usually this chilly in March?

Posted March 22nd, 2006 by Matt Lanza. 7 comments

It's not atypical to see wintry weather in Central New York this time of year, but there's usually some respite from the season by now. We have not seen that (perhaps because we saw it in January?). So far for the month, we're averaging 27.5 degrees for our temperature. Incidentally, this... Continue reading…

Golden Snowball Contest?

So the weather is relatively quiet (at least here. Be happy you don't live in Nebraska right now) and there's only so much to talk about, so let's change it up a bit. If you watched our Live at Five Newshour tonight, you saw a brief little piece on the... Continue reading…

Last night's lake effect had a lot of trouble really getting organized around here. But it did become mildly productive in a few spots. Here's a couple snow totals... Oriskany Falls: 4" Camden: 3" Brookfield: 3.5" But check out other regional totals here: Liverpool: 7.2" Syracuse (Hancock Airport): 6.4" Clay: 7.5" Cazenovia: 6.5" Fenner: 6" So you can see we...

As Bill mentioned and as we've been telling you over the last day or so, lake effect will be an issue again tonight. You can see some signs of a band trying to develop this evening down along the Route 20 corridor. I brought up our snowfall amounts from this... Continue reading…

What a beauty we have going on out there today. Wish I could say it's going to last all weekend. Unfortunately, we're going to have winter to contend with by Saturday night. Looks like things will be a go for the St. Patrick's Day Parade tomorrow. At this point, I... Continue reading…

Wednesday's snow, a record for the day!

Posted March 16th, 2006 by Matt Lanza. 6 comments

The late season thumping Central New York took this week was not unprecedented for this or any part of winter, but it was significant enough to make 2 records.... 1.) We set a new daily snowfall record on Wednesday the 15th with 13.0 inches. This shatters the old record of 6.3"... Continue reading…

Well, we've started throwing around thunder in the forecast, and that's just another reminder that spring is approaching (even though most of the next 7 days are looking wintry). As a result, the National Weather Service's (NWS) Albany office is hosting several Skywarn Spotter workshops. A Skywarn spotter is someone... Continue reading…

Why it's so hard to warm up here...

Posted March 10th, 2006 by Matt Lanza. 10 comments

Often in springtime and autumn we run into situations where warm air rushes at us from the south and west. This is usually after we've been stuck in a relatively cold air mass for any given length of time. With all this warmth running toward us, you'd think we could... Continue reading…

Quiet weather continues..

It's pretty quiet in the weather center tonight. It's been this way for a couple nights now and looks to continue for several more. I have to say I'm not complaining though. Time to gear up for the always eventful springtime weather. We're still on target for a good warm-up... Continue reading…
