In recent days, heavy snow has fallen on New York City, and the snow has reached more than a meter in some areas.
According to New York’s Chief of Meteorology, John Davitt, “This is the largest snowfall in December since 2009, with snow reaching a height of 10.9 inches (approximately 28 cm) that year.”
The expert continued, snowfall this year in Central Park reached 10.5 (27 cm), while it fell 10.1 inches (26 cm) in the La Guardia area and 7.2 inches (approximately 18 cm) at John F Kennedy Airport. Also, the amount of snow that fell on the city in the past days is twice the amount that fell last year for each winter period.
