A massive winter storm stretched across the U.S. from Missouri to Maine this weekend. In New York City, it brought us our first significant snowfall of the season.
According to the NWS, Central Park had 5 inches of accumulation. That brings our snow total for the month up to 6.5 inches. On average, the city usually receives 4.8 inches of snow for the entire month of December.
While we are just half way through the month, these numbers mark a substantial departure from last December’s total of only 0.4 inches of snow.
