January and February have been carrying the load. The other months are all very near the 150 year average.

What a time to be alive..

With the 6.4" from yesterday, it is now official! The 2010's is the snowiest decade on record in Central Park.

Here are the rankings:

2010s 352.4
1890s 352.3
1870s 335.1
1940s 326.7
1880s 324.8
1960s 310.5
1910s 305.2
1900s 298.1
1920s 292.0
2000s 292.0
1930s 241.3
1990s 238.3
1970s 222.0
1950s 215.3
1980s 199.4.

And we still have the rest of 2018 and the rest of 2019 to add on to this

Wow! My recollections start in 1960 so I lived through the miserable 1970's and 1980's and 1990's.I never thought I would see any decade beat the what I thought was back then, the 1960's, but the 2010's are going to blow it's doors off.Some pretty heavy company, the 1870's, 1880's and 1890's!

The final tally of the November 15, 2018 storm. Orange County seemed to win this one in our area (Gardnertown had 13.0 inches).

I know Mount Hope in Orange County recorded 18.3 by a trained spotter but I'm still not buying that one.

I was just glancing at some data today and happen to notice that 3 of the last 4 winters in NYC March has been the snowiest month.

Something to consider should we have the snowfall contest again this year.

Reading this happy hashtag made me realize that we have nearly 4 1/2 months of snow production time not counting April, which can be a wild card as well.

I believe we had 50 inches or more in the HV last year CP if my memory serves me correctly.

Exactly Doc. It was an awesome spring.

I love these stats Mike, I hope you don't mind my copying it over here to the weather & stats thread to preserve it.

Math23x7 wrote:November 2018 is complete. Here are the results for NYC with 1981-2010 anomalies:

Temperature: 44.4: -3.3
Precipitation: 7.62": +3.60"
Snow: 6.4": +6.1"

Warmest temperature reading: 72 (2nd)
Warmest low temperature: 64 (2nd)
Lowest temperature reading: 15 (23rd)
Lowest high temperature: 28 (22nd)

November 2018 was the 7th wettest month on record (the wettest being 12.41" in 1972).
November 2018 was the 4th snowiest month on record (behind 1938 (12.8"), 1882 (14") and 1898 (19")

November 1938 was tied with 1920, 1974, and 1972 with the 40th coldest November on record

With records going back to 1869, this is the 150th November CPK has been keeping weather records.

If we were to use the 1871-1900 averages, November 2018 would actually be 0.8* above normal. The last November to be below the 1871-1900 average of 43.6 was 1996 and the last month to be below the 1871-1900 average was February 2015 (7.1* below that average). As cold as it was this month, it pales in comparison to those late-1800's Novembers.

If no snow fell between now and the end of 2020 (god forbid), here are what the 1991-2020 monthly snowfall averages would be like compared to the 1981-2010 averages:

October: 0.1" (up from trace)
November: 0.5" (up from 0.3")
December: 4.7" (down from 4.8")
January: 8.6" (up from 7.0")
February: 10.1" (up from 9.2")
March: 4.6" (up from 3.9")
April: 0.4" (down from 0.6")

Sum: 29.0" (up from 25.8")

Note that the Sum is using the rounded numbers for the months.

Looks like we have benefited from back-half winters more in the last decade.
