Syracuse lags in race to be snowiest U.S. city

Posted: Updated:

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Syracuse is in danger of losing its title as the snowiest big city in America.

The Salt City in central New York had 81 inches of snow as of Monday to rank fourth in the race to win the Golden Snow Globe competition. Erie, Pa. is the runaway leader with 107.5 inches.

Heck, Syracuse even trails Buffalo by 13.4 inches in the Golden Snowball contest for supremacy among New York's largest cities. Last year, Syracuse won both contests.

Nationally, Grand Rapids, Mich. ranks third with 92.2 inches, while Rochester, N.Y., at 71. 8 inches, rounds out the top five nationally.

The rest of the top 10 are: Ann Arbor, Mich.; Detroit; Toledo, Ohio; Flint, Mich.; and Billings, Mont.
