"1-11-11" Northeast Snowstorm Final Totals

In the previous blog post you will find my predictions for the snowstorm that just concluded in the New York City area. While at this time a blizzard still rages in New England, especially for the cities of Providence, Rhode Island and Boston, Massachusetts, I felt confident creating this final snowfall total map, which reflects general accumulations reported throughout the northeast, thus far.

In my opinion, I did pretty darn well with my forecast. Compare this final map to those below!

Green: 18"+
Red: 12"-18"
Purple: 6-12"
Blue: 4-8"
Yellow: 2-4"
Orange: 1-3"...

One important thing to note..

This storm deposited a total of 10.2" of fresh snow here in Gramercy Park, New York City. With the snow pack that was already on the ground, that brings the current total snow pack to about 16". The season to date snowfall is now at about 33", and it is only the second week of January! The seasonal average snowfall for New York City is around 25" so we are already in another well-above average winter season!

Finally, check out this radar image during the height of the storm last night! Just incredible!
