Syracuse’s Sixth Snowiest November since Records Began in 1902

After reporting a few days ago that Syracuse was close to marking its coldest November on record, this month has also landed the city in the top ten snowiest Novembers in 116 years of data.

As of Thursday, Syracuse has seen 22.7 inches (57.66 cm) of snow since Nov 1.

That puts this as the sixth snowiest November on record, with data going back to 1902.

Normal November snowfall is less than half of that, at 9.5 inches (24 cm), according to the NWS.


Snowy Novembers vs Solar Activity

The sun’s activity runs on cycles of approximately 11 years, almost like clockwork, during which there’s a Solar Maximum and a Solar Minimum.

Of the ten snowiest Novembers on record, eight can be correlated to Solar Minimums:

  1. 1995: 34.2″ — Solar Minimum of cycle 22
  2. 1996: 25.9″ — Solar Minimum of cycle 22
  3. 1976: 25.9″ — Solar Minimum of cycle 20
  4. 2016: 25.2″ — Solar Minimum of cycle 24
  5. 1944: 24.4″ — Solar Minimum of cycle 17
  6. 2018: 22.7″ — Solar Minimum of cycle 24
  7. 1958: 22.1″
  8. 1973: 20.6″ — Solar Minimum of cycle 20
  9. 2000: 20.2″
  10. 1933: 19.6″ — Solar Minimum of cycle 16

With 1958 and 2000 occurring during spells of diminished solar output around solar maximums.


A Return of the Cold Times

The current solar cycle (24) –the weakest cycle for over 100 years– is all but over. It, along with cycle 25, are likely ushering in the start of what’s known as a Grand Solar Minimum — a prolonged period of reduced solar output.

Professor Valentina Zharkova’s latest research has all four magnetic fields of the sun going out of phase. The previous time we had a Little Ice Age (the Maunder Minimum 1645-1715) only two fields went out of phase.
