Snowiest SEASON in New York City in 130 years

We’re not talking snowiest day here, we’re talking snowiest entire season.________________

22 Mar 2018 – As of 8 p.m. last night, 6.7 inches of snow had fallen in Central Park, putting New York City over the 30-inch mark for the season.  Even more snow has fallen since that time.

“This marks the fifth consecutive season that at least 30 inches of snow have fallen in New York City,” says CNN journalist Harry Enten. The only other recorded time it snowed this much, for this long a period, was back in the 1880s, mostly during the presidency of Chester A. Arthur.

Average snowfall per season in New York City since 1869, when records began, has been 28.8 inches.

It’s not your imagination

“If you’re a New Yorker who thinks that the last few winters have been brutal to some degree, you’re exactly right,” says Enten. “The largest snowstorm in New York City history — of 27.5 inches — occurred in January 2016. That same season also featured the only subzero temperature since 1994.”

  1. They keep saying definitively that this is the last winter snowstorm too, on both the East and West Coast, I don’t see any indication the pattern is changing, except that the snow is progressing even farther to the South on the East Coast as March goes on, next one will be south of DC, possibly, and California will get another storm just after this one leaves, it’s 12 hours driving from border to border, so huge state, which might be dwarfed by British Columbia, or maybe it’s the map projection that makes it appear that way.

    They could be accused of all the things they accuse others of, magical thinking, pseudoscience, junk science, wishful thinking, you name it.

  2. chuckling..the co2 heating causes cooling meme will be wearing thin with everyone bar the truly mindwashed by now.

  3. That winter period was at Solar Max of SC13 an AMP affected cycle, one of the first and lowest output cycles of the Gleissberg period of cycles, from 1879 to 1940.
    This period of cycled was affected by a sequence Sudden Warming winter events and significant Euopean cold winters. For example 1903.

    The period would also feature strong Meridonial Jet streams and very reduced levels of EUV.
