  • "The climate of New York State is marked by abundant snowfall. With the exception of the Coastal Division, the state receives an average seasonal amount of 40 inches or more. The average snowfall is greater than 70 inches over some 60 percent of New York's area. The moderating influence of the Atlantic Ocean reduces the snow accumulation to 25 to 35 inches in the New York City area and on Long Island. About one-third of the winter season precipitation in the Coastal Division occurs from storms, which also yield at least 1 inch of snow. The great bulk of the winter precipitation in upstate New York comes as snow." Source and further information: http://nysc.eas.cornell.edu/climate_of_ny.html
