No snow

NRCC 2015 December 6 snowfall departure map

The map above shows the departure from normal snowfall totals so far this fall/winter across the Northeast -- it's via the Northeast Regional Climate Center at Cornell.

That link also includes a table of the latest snowfalls of an inch or more in many places around the Northeast. The latest inch-or-greater snowfall for Albany is January 19, 2007. (The record for latest measurable snowfall in Albany -- that is, more than a tenth of an inch -- is December 24.) [NWS Albany]

There's also a table with seasonal snowfall totals for those late-snow seasons -- as you might expect, they often end up with less snow than normal.

One of the things that's remarkable about this fall/winter so far isn't just that there's been a lack of snow -- but it's unusually warm, too. We just had one of the warmest Novembers and autumns on record here. And high temps could reach the 60s this weekend, which would approach records for the date. [NWS Albany]

Earlier on AOA: The signs are pointing to, yes, there will be winter

Sorry kids, el Nino says no snow for you this winter.
