As a major Nor'easter begins to pull away from the coast early today, the effects
of it will be winding down across the Tri-State Area... While the heavy, wet snow that
occurred yesterday and during the night has left behind a general 3-6 inches in the
City, on Long Island and across much of central and northern New Jersey, there has
been greater than 8 inches of snow in portions of Connecticut, including northern
parts of Fairfield County... Winds have now dropped below the threshold which is
necessary for any advisory or warning to be in effect, but some of the gusts
(especially early today) will be close to 35 miles per hour...
Expect some lingering problems for a while this morning as slushy areas and
untreated surfaces provide us with some slick spots, but since the bulk of the
precipitation has let up (both in its intensity and coverage area), most temperatures
have begun to rise -- and many reporting stations will actually be above freezing at
We're headed for the lower and middle 40s later today as morning clouds break for
some sunshine, and the wind will still be chilly out of the northwest this afternoon
averaging 12-25 miles per hour... Tonight should offer clearing, and it will be chilly
with less wind...
The news for tomorrow and especially this coming weekend is MUCH BETTER - as a
high pressure system starts to build into the Eastern Region... While temperatures
tomorrow may have a tough time climbing above 50 in some places, the weekend
will be warmer... Most temperatures will be in the upper 50s on Saturday and the
lower 60s Sunday...
The warmer weather should last into early next week, with some places reaching the
mid 60s on Tuesday and Wednesday -- but we'll need to allow for a shower or
thunderstorm on Tuesday as well.
Have a good day!!!
