It's a Beautiful Snowy Morning Around NYC & the Suburbs!

 

Good Morning!

 Have fun in the snow today! The snow is dry and powdery now, but will become a bit wetter as

we go into the midday hours, great for snowballs and sledding, tough on shoveling so becareful

 with that and travel. Things will refreeze tonight with black ice on some roads, watch for that.

Looks like it is basically a snow storm for most of us with 3-6 inches from the wave of low

pressure passing by to the south and a general 3-6 inches. 6Z NAM coming in is -2C or lower

through the column during the precipitation, this morning and perhaps we get enough of a little

warm layer or lighter precipitation early this afternoon for a little sleet or freezing rain/drizzle to

mix in before precip ends 2-3 p.m. The farther south you go down into central New Jersey the

snow will mix with sleet and freezing rain this morning that will keep snow amounts lower.

Obviously some travel disruptions this morning into early this afternoon. Temperatures in the

City may not crack the freezing mark this afternoon.

Good idea for folks to clean up the snow this afternoon as with clearing skies tonight,

temperatures will fall off pretty quickly and freeze wet and slushy areas solid.

High pressure to the north drifts eastward tomorrow and our winds shift around from northeast

tonight gradually to southeast tomorrow and night and lower levels will be moistening. This low

level moisture will probably result in tomorrow afternoon ending overcast and some spotty light

rain and drizzle will break out tomorrow night and areas of fog will develop. Temperatures in the

suburbs will be close to freezing for a time and any light rain and drizzle could freezing on

surfaces. We are still expecting temperatures to be above freezing in the City with the flow

coming in from the Ocean.

With the southerly flow ahead of a cold front stretching from low pressure that will be tracking up

toward James Bay, we will warm up some Monday, but deepening moisture ahead of the front

will result in periods of rain to go along with the areas of fog.

This front will sweep across the area early Monday night and we look for dry, breezy weather and

some sunshine behind the front Tuesday with no big intrusions of truly cold air. High pressure

moving eastward will promote dry weather and some sunshine again Wednesday, then as we

head into Thursday and Friday we will be watching for the next storm system coming up toward

the area. Models not in too much agreement, so not a lot of confidence in the timing or duration

as we head into Thursday into Friday.

 

 

Have a Great and Safe Weekend!
