Wednesday's nor'easter is definitely one for the record books in New York City.
All three main reporting stations in New York City shattered daily snowfall records on Wednesday.
Central Park broke the day's previous record of 0.1 of an inch from 1878 with 4.3 inches. When the snow that fell earlier this morning is added in, the total from the nor'easter comes to 4.7 inches.
Never before, since record-keeping began, has snow fallen at the city's LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy airports on Nov. 7.
That changed Wednesday when LaGuardia measured 1.1 inches and J.F.K. recorded 4.0 inches.
Wednesday also marked the earliest in the snowfall season, since record-keeping started in 1869, that Central Park measured more than 3.0 inches of snow. Nov. 23, 1989, previously held that distinction with 4.4 inches.
The 4.7 inches at Central Park now makes this month tied with November 1989 as New York City's sixth snowiest November on record. November 1898 sits at the top of that list with 19.0 inches.
The snow will melt this afternoon as temperatures climb into the lower 40s, but slushy spots could refreeze tonight as temperatures plunge below freezing outside of the city--mainly in the far northern and western suburbs.
Any snow still around on Friday will have no trouble melting as a warming trend commences.
