NYC Breaks Record For Latest Snowfall Of Any Winter

AccuWeather reports:

No white Christmas to set a festive mood in Rockefeller Center. No snow to greet New Year’s Eve revelers in Times Square for the first full-blown celebration since the start of the pandemic. New York City has hardly looked like winter over the past couple of months due to a lack of snowfall. The Big Apple’s snowless streak has not only been turning heads, but it has also officially become record-setting.

Since records began in 1869, the latest first measurable snowfall in New York City was recorded on Jan. 29, 1973, but that changed on Sunday. As Jan. 29 came and went this year, no snow was recorded at the official weather station in Central Park. And each day without snow will continue to break the record. Last week, the Big Apple surpassed the second-place record, which was set in 1871 when snow was not measured until Jan. 21.
