This is from the NOAA... The prevailing wind is generally from the west in New York State. A southwest component
becomes evident in winds during the warmer months while a northwest component is
characteristic of the colder half of the year.

I would say the transformation of the rust belt from manufacturing to service based economies has also played a huge role.
