Breaking 50 Year Record, Snow is a No-Show in NYC

By Matis Glenn

Despite the wishes of children pining for a day off from school and an opportunity to take out their sleds, New York City has yet to experience snow this winter, breaking a record set 50 years ago.

“The record for the latest measurable snow is today — and obviously we’re going to be way too warm to see anything resembling snow,” Fox Weather Meteorologist Christopher Tate told The New York Post.

“The latest first snow on record is January 29, 1973, and we will break that today because we will not see snow today,” he said.

The closest the city has come to snow this season have been several flurries which have become rain before hitting the ground.

According to the Weather Channel, New York City typically experiences its first significant snowfall in mid-December. Meteorologists say that February usually is the most snow-heavy month for the city, and Tate says that “There are some very, very early indications that there might possibly be something at the end of this week or early next week,” but added that it’s uncertain. “I’m not putting any money on it yet.”
