This year has been drier and colder than previous years, but it still at least peaks above freezing in the day time.

For those of you that think you have it bad in Minnesota and elsewhere around the Plains, you don't.

Both places get frigid but you don't get nearly the amount of snow. Pretty sure Upstate gets double the amount.

Old Forge, NY and the Adirondacks are the coldest part of the contiguous 48 right now.

**** Upstate NY.
I grew up in the Mohawk Valley and have spent most of my adult life in Minneapolis. I will take a Minneapolis winter over a Mohawk Valley one any day of the week - even though Minneapolis is colder. Northern Minnesota on the other hand...

Right now it is -9 which is pretty cold but not the end of the world.

Still an unusually warm dry winter, with snowpack running about 11% of normal (all the small local ski areas are closed due to zero snow) - not a good sign for the upcoming summer, as we've been in drought for about the last 5-8 years and it shows no sign of breaking.

Apparently the warm dry weather here is caused by a very strong high pressure ridge off the coast, which is forcing the cold wet air up and over, into the Arctic, which in turn is bringing the cold wet weather to parts east of us.

It was -4 this morning with a -18 wind chill and currently is 0.

Nice try.

Not only is it just as cold, but much cloudier and snowier by a mile. But it's the Northeast and there's no major cities in Upstate NY like a Minneapolis or Washington or Chicago even so there's no press on it.

There's a 30 degree difference between the Utica area and NYC right now. Forecasts are hilarious in comparison. NYC is sunny virtually every day the next ten days and 40/50s but Utica still manages 20/30s with snow, rain and clouds.

Minneapolis is cold but at least the sun is out.

Mohawk Valley is just depressing and perpetual clouds and snow every day.

We have snow, but it is below average. Temps have actually been all over the place. It is below zero now, but it was in the mid 30's yesterday. There has even been some mid 50's for highs recently and some below zero lows. This is in Syracuse, by the way.

Syracuse and other upstate "cities" are some of the worst weather cities in the U.S.

Annual sunshine average and cloud cover is basically identical to Seattle and the PNW. Not only that but it gets below freezing, gets 100" snow and more rain.

Upstate NY is an abysmal place.

There are actual seasons in Upstate NY still and many areas that get similar weather are doing just fine.

Like I said earlier, the temps have been all over the place this winter and temps aren't going to stay below zero for long this week.

Im more concerned with lack of sun (vitamin D) than frigid temperatures. Thats why im moving.

You can have Upstate NY and its atrocious weather patterns. You only get one shot at good weather each year, and this past summer was pretty ****ty. Stormy and mild, especially coming off that brutal winter last year.

Ill take my chances elsewhere, where the sun actually comes out.

Syracuse is depressing as ****. How do you live there?
