TRI-COUNTY AREA   ADVERTISEMENTS

Snow makes an early appearance

TRI-COUNTY AREA—A snow covered Oct. 16 morning?
That’s how to describe what people saw Friday in the Finger Lakes region.  Mitch Gilt, hydrometeorological technician for the National Weather Service in Binghamton, said seeing more than an inch of snow this early in October is unusual.  He said that in Schuyler County, Mecklenburg reported 3.2 inches of snow, Cayuta had 2.5 inches, and Smith Valley had 2.2 inches.  In Steuben County, Hornell reported 2.5 and 3 inches, and Avoca reported 2.1 inches of snow.  Gilt said there were no numbers for Yates County, however residents reported a snow covered ground.
Gilt explained for the area the last time it snowed this much so early in October was in the 1970s.  He said Oct. 17, 1974, Ithaca, and central New York, had two to four inches of snow.  Cortland in 1974 also had above two inches.
“If it had been a week later, it would not have been unusual,” said Gilt.
However, by noon on Friday, most of the snow had succumbed to the sun.  Just south of the Southern Tier, several Pennsylvania counties had winter snow warnings.
