New York’s Cairns Mountain range is beginning to see more snowfall than usual.
A new analysis of the data by the National Snow and Ice Data Center shows snowfall in the mountains has risen from a few inches to a whopping 2.1 inches.
The latest update on the snowfall comes from a January 24 analysis that shows snow in the region is at 1.1 to 2.0 inches higher than normal.
The snowfall is particularly notable because it’s at the end of a stretch of unusually warm weather that’s been affecting the mountain range in recent weeks.
In an effort to help residents in the area get through the snow, the city is asking residents to wear full face masks, wear hats, wear long pants and stay in hotels and campgrounds.
