Syracuse, New York, Information
Located in the centre of New York on the southern shore of Lake Ontario, the Syracuse Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) is a 3,400-square-mile land area composed of four counties Cayuga, Madison, Onondaga and Oswego.
The Syracuse area enjoys a four-season continental climate with marked seasonal changes. Due to geographical location, cyclonic systems that move from the interior of the country through the St. Lawrence Valley affect the Syracuse weather, as do the cold air masses that advance through the Great Lakes region from the Hudson Bay area, making winters cold with snow.
During the summer and parts of spring and autumn, temperatures customarily rise rapidly during daytime to fall rapidly after sunset, so the nights are relatively cool and comfortable. Excessively warm spells are rare. Temperatures average 24 degrees in January; 46 degrees in April; 71 in July and 62 in September.
