New York set for record October snowfall

New York, Sun, 30 Oct 2011 ANI

New York, Oct 30(ANI): Authorities say that New York is seeing its snowiest October on record.


National Weather Service spokesman Chris Vaccaro says 1.3 inches of snow had fallen at the Central Park as of 2 p.m. on Saturday, making this the snowiest October there since records began being kept in 1869.


That's also a record for the date of October 29.


"It's been a pretty dynamic situation," the New York Daily News quoted Joe Picca, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service, as saying.


This is only the fourth time the city has had measurable snow before Halloween - and its the most by far.


By 2 p.m., Central Park measured 1.3 inches, beating out the previous record for the month.


The final count was expected to hit between 7 to 10 inches, said Picca, who blamed the record snowfall on the chilly temperatures.


"It's been trending colder and colder so we are seeing more sites switching from rain to snow," he said. (ANI)
