The snowiest winters above include some analog years we are using to help us with our forecast. Those years are 76-77, 02-03, and 06-07. With the above factors mentioned we feel confident that the Syracuse area will see above average snowfall.
Some of you may remember I worked at WSTM from 1991-1995 with Wayne Mahar. I cover lots of lake effect and will keep you on top of this winter, it will not be like the snow drought last winter.
