The weather, currently.
New York had its first measurable snowfall today with 0.4 inches recorded in Central Park, after a historic “snow drought.” The prior record was set on Jan. 29, 1973, according to the National Weather Service, which began keeping record in 1869.
The snowfall was part of a small storm system off the coast.
New York and other major cities along the I-95 corridor, including Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia, are experiencing one of their least snowy seasons in the last five decades. The region has been warmer than usual, due to La Niña, which is now going on its third consecutive year.
