To clarify, there is no causal relationship between major NYC snowstorms and the day of the week. The observation of 13 snowstorms in a set of 16 is just a coincidence. With more storms to observe the ratio would inevitably decline toward the 43% level implied by chance (given that the atmospheric physics involved do not have a relationship with our man-made seven day calendar). Said differently, the chance that the next major NYC snowstorm will start on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday is 43%, not 81%.
