The Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang also did a top five snowfall list. It's pretty much the same as the Golden Snow Globe's list I referred to earlier, but they do more meterological background.
Like so many other places on this list, February has been the blockbuster month in upstate New York. In Syracuse, 27.9 inches of snow has fallen so far this month — a steady stream of storms that included 8.8 inches on Groundhog Day alone. In fact, Syracuse has seen snow every day since Jan. 29.


It’s difficult to convey the significance of how many records Boston has obliterated this season — 5-, 7-, 10-, 20-, 30- and 40-day snow records all within a couple of weeks, plus the snowiest February on record.


Erie and Buffalo — always neck-and-neck in the lake-effect snow belt! It’s usually a good forecast to say that if one is getting lake-effect snow, so is the other.


No single day this winter has given Buffalo more than nine inches of snow, but sometimes “slow and steady” is good enough. All but two days since Jan. 1 have featured at least a trace of snow for the city.


Of all the cities that have been hammered by Old Man Winter over the past few weeks, Boston has received the most media coverage (by far). But it turns out that their Woo-town neighbor to the west takes the prize for most snow so far this season.
It's interesting that Syracuse is still up at number 5 despite being a foot below average this year.
