Seven counties in New York State were forced to declare a SNOW EMERGENCIES this week –running Tuesday through Thursday– as high-impact powder buried streets and sidewalks.
As reported by timesunion.com, authorities in Albany have towed some 240 cars since declaring the emergency — a planned operation in order to allow snow plows the chance to effectively dig the city out from 22.6 inches — its biggest snow storm on record this early in the season, and 8th biggest ever:
Residents were instructed to move their cars to the odd side of the road so city plows could clear the snow. Police were reportedly driving down streets with loudspeakers, reminding drivers to move their cars and in some cases, knocking on doors to try and prevent the drivers from being towed.
Nearby Troy also declared snow emergency, while Schenectady declared a state of emergency.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday that National Guard units and state Department of Transportation crews were deployed to all three cities to help clear streets and dig out fire hydrants.
Selkirk, located some 17 miles from Troy, eclipsed two feet of snow this week.
While Schaghticoke, in Rensselaer County, received 27.5 inches.
The storm unloaded heavy snowfall to the Northeast in two phases.
As reported by the Washington Post: before redeveloping northeast of the Delmarva Peninsula, the storm generated an initial round of moderate to heavy snow over eastern New York and interior New England (closer to the coast, mostly rain fell in the initial phase). That’s why the totals from Binghamton to Albany and parts of interior Massachusetts were so impressive: They received snow from the storm’s two acts, without interruption.
Over two feet of early-season snow fell in some parts on Sunday through Tuesday, before the flurries gradually dissipated into early Wednesday, and the clean-up could begin.
And taking a look at the GFS, yet more snow is forecast for NY State over the next few days, before a slight warm-up sets in.
However, the cold and snow is set to return with a bang Wednesday next week as a trough of brutal Arctic air once again dips anomalously far south on the back of a weak and wavy meridional jet stream flow — itself associated with the low solar output earth is currently receiving.
Temperature departures will plunge as much as 16C below normal for the time of year across the majority of the Western United States…
…while up to 30 inches of snow could settle in NY State between Dec 11 through Dec 16:
The lower-latitudes continue to refreeze in line with historically low solar activity.
Don’t be fooled by bogus political agendas — our future is one of ever-descending COLD.
