Governor Kathy Hochul today deployed state emergency response assets to regions expected to receive up to a foot or more of snow between Thursday and Saturday. The storm is forecast to bring up to 12 to 18 inches of snowfall by Saturday in parts of the North Country, Mohawk Valley and Capital Region, with peak snowfall rates of one to two inches per hour Thursday night through Friday. Most of the state will see at least a few inches of snow from this storm, with up to a foot of snow expected in Central New York and the Southern Tier. Parts of the Western New York and Finger Lakes regions began seeing a wintry mix of snow, rain, and ice on Thursday. Travel conditions in impacted regions will be dangerous Thursday afternoon when the heaviest snowfall will start. Power outages in regions with the heaviest snowfall are possible over the next few days. Governor Hochul urged New Yorkers to stay home Thursday evening and Friday to avoid any unnecessary travel while emergency response assets work to remove snow and ice from the transportation system.
Governor Hochul also urged New Yorkers to prepare for a separate lake effect snow system expected to begin Friday night, which could bring one to two feet of snow to areas off Lake Erie and Lake Ontario over the weekend, with snowfall rates of two inches per hour.
Wednesday will be dry with clouds over the northern mountains, then on Wednesday evening, intense snow will fall for a few hours resulting in 2-5 inches mostly over the northern and central mountains. Thursday will be cold with single-digit temperatures, then we'll see drier and warm weather from Friday through Tuesday. For next week, a strong storm will track through Colorado on Wed. and Thu.
As of 7 pm EDT on March 15, the National Weather Service in Boston announced that Boston Logan Airport received 108.6 inches of snow, officially making the 2014-2015 season the all time snowiest season for the city. In the last 21 years, Boston has now had 4 of its top 5 snowiest seasons. (These counts cover the period from July 1 through June 30, to include snow in the fall and spring months.)
- Record 30-day snowfall: 94.4 inches from Jan. 24- Feb. 22, 2015, inclusive (previous record: 58.8 inches from Jan. 9 - Feb. 7, 1978). Incredibly, this 30-day total would be the third snowiest season!
- Record snowfall for meteorological winter (December, January and February): 99.4 inches (previous record: 81.5 inches in 1993-94; of the 107.6 inches in 1995-96, only 79.4 inches came in December, January and February)
- The Blue Hill Observatory in Milton, Massachusetts set an all-time snow depth record on the morning of February 15. Then, as spring officially arrived, they set their record seasonal snowfall previously set in 1995-1996 (144.4 inches).
On February 26, Bangor may have tied its all-time record snow depth (snow that's on the ground at any one time) of 53 inches from Feb. 27 - Mar. 1, 1969. However, that data is under review by National Weather Service meteorologists.
The city continues to monitor roadways for icy spots, areas where winds redeposit snow in travel lanes and roadways where refreeze potential is high after a winter event ends. Crews may also clear catch basins so that melting snow can run off.Note: It is common for Snow Warriors to service sections of a lower priority street as they drive them on their way to the next section of a higher priority roadway. Lower priority roadway sections may also be serviced when a plow travels across them to return to a city maintenance outpost to resupply or refuel.
The mountain averages 500 inches of snow a winter. The snow is traditionally light, fluffy and dry, making it a paradise for riders & skiers. At the very top of Big Cottonwood Canyon, Brighton gets the very best of the "greatest snow on earth," and lots of it.
Winter storms create a higher risk of car accidents, hypothermia, frostbite, carbon monoxide poisoning, and heart attacks from overexertion. Winter storms including blizzards can bring extreme cold, freezing rain, snow, ice and high winds.
Issued when hazardous winter weather in the form of heavy snow, heavy freezing rain, or heavy sleet is imminent or occurring. Winter Storm Warnings are usually issued 12 to 24 hours before the event is expected to begin.

Control of forward and reverse speed is simplicity itself with Honda's hydrostatic transmission. Just move the lever forward or backward to go in the direction you want, at the speed you want. Infinitely variable speed means it's easy to pick a speed to match your snow conditions and personal preference. There's no shifting, and the ground speed doesn't affect the auger rotation speed. It's easy to control, and virtually maintenance free.
The park makes its own snow, so you never have to worry whether Mother Nature will provide her own fresh powder. There are no designated lanes here, which means that guests can link up their tubes and ride together.
Guests must be at least 42 inches tall and at least four years old to go snow tubing at Scaly Mountain. However, the Outdoor Center also offers ice skating, gem mining, and trout fishing.
Be sure to calculate your minimum snow removal rates by asking yourself: what would your overhead be? Wages (per worker), drive time, fuel, and insurance are all base necessities required for every job. It helps to calculate a job based on how long it would take one (1) person to clear snow, that way you could multiply exponentially depending on how many people you plan to send to the job site, making it easier on you in the end.
If you choose to charge by the square foot, remember to take into consideration the type of terrain and how difficult it would be to maneuver around in. You should also note any obstacles in your way that might make the job more difficult. The cost per square foot will actually make your total decrease the larger the lot is, so consider this option for pricing for snow removal carefully! 2b1af7f3a8
