Map location for Syracuse, NY

You have Syracuse located in the completely wrong spot on your regional map. We are just about in the center of New York state, approximately 145 miles due east of Buffalo. Your map has us sitting on the eastern shore of Lake Ontario. Please put Syracuse back where it belongs.

Re: Syracuse location

The Syracuse dot really isn't that far off at all. The city's only a county and a half south of the easternmost end of Lake Ontario. It's the Buffalo dot that looks a little off to me, but that's pretty close, too.

Thanks, This has come to our attention.

January 3-5, 2019

What are the chances of snow or ice on January 3-5, 2019?

@tabitha, january weather

@Tabitha Pitney, considering it's smack dab in the middle of winter, I would say the chances are almost exactly the same as every year. No one can predict that with enough accuracy for it to be helpful, so either be prepared or travel in July.

Jan 3 to 5

Very good! We are predicting lake snow and cold on January 1 to 6.
