In stark contrast to last year’s fast and furious start to winter, Buffalo is still waiting on its first measurable snow of the season.
The latest date that the city recorded its first measurable snow is Dec. 3 in 1899.
After not receiving any measurable snow on Thursday, Dec. 3, the long-standing record was broken.
Measurable snow is defined as 0.1 of an inch of snow or more.
The latest in the season that Buffalo has picked up its first inch of snow was Jan. 3, which happened in the winter of 1922-23.
Buffalo has only picked trace amounts of snow so far this season, a big change from last year’s “Snowvember” lake-effect snow event.
Some southern Buffalo suburbs picked up more than 7 feet of snow over the period of several days, hindering the area. The Buffalo Bills game was moved to Detroit after Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park was buried under snow.
Last year’s lake-effect outbreaks were fueled by constant shots of Arctic air moving over the relatively warm Great Lakes.
This year, the cold shots have not been practically non-existent and the overall pattern is not expected to change anytime soon.
