That is likely due to not being in the path of a snow band and unlike the towns directly south of Syracuse, they aren’t as hilly. Hence, the fact that the local ski areas tend to be south of the city.

All are small towns west/SW of the city, with the Jordan-Elbridge SD serving the two villages within the town of Elbridge and parts of nearby towns. It has more of a rural character, but is in close proximity to shopping in Auburn to the west and Camillus to the east.

Marcellus is a highly ranked SD, which has seen some housing development in the town of Onondaga portion of the district. Nice, quaint “New England” like village; with shopping in Camillus, Skaneateles, Onondaga Community College and Upstate Medical’s Community General Hospital on Onondaga Hill not too far away.

BTW-Where did you get this information from?

I did a Google search of all the zip codes in Onondaga County, just Google Jordan N.Y. or Marcellus, N.Y. Average annual snowfall and the website shows up.

Got it...This likely depends on the source uses, as I see that you can get different totals depending on the source.

Probably depends on what years they use to get the averages.

If Syracuse only won the Golden snow globe award once since the 2013-2014 winter season means that every year is very different on the amount snow Syracuse has compared to the rest of the country.

Previous winners of large cities with most snow in the US since 2013-2014 season other than Syracuse....

Buffalo, NY...twice
Rochester, NY
Erie, PA
Lowell, MA
Lakewood, CO...twice

Boulder, Colorado receives an average of 97 inches of Snow every year according to a Google search. Bozeman, Montana, which gets attention as a high tech small city, averages 91 inches of snow every year according to a Google search.

Both seem to be popular and thriving cities, so snow shouldn't be a reason Syracuse can't be as well.

Quebec City, Canada averages over 120 inches of snow a year and is has less sunshine than Syracuse.... is another example.

With only 65 inches of snow last winter, the 10 year average of annual snowfall in Syracuse, NY is now down to 103.7 inches of snow.

The 5 year average annual of snowfall in Syracuse, NY is now down to 83.5 inches of snow.

If this continues Syracuse won't be able to claim the title as the snowiest large city in the US any longer.

It will depend on the changes that occur in other cities/areas as well. They may also see a decline in snowfall averages as well.
