Messy Thursday Ahead But NYC In The Clear Ice Wise

Good morning everyone. Our gloomy week has started, and that’ll be capped off with a rainy Thursday and heavy rain Friday morning. There are no big issues with frozen precip in the NYC area, and brief issues N&W of the area as things turn to cold rain quickly. There will also be a prolonged period of snow, sleet, and freezing rain well north and east of the area, but this is typical for them this time of year.

Expect cloudy skies today with on and off rain all morning, then remaining cloudy. Highs today in the upper 40’s to low 50’s.

We are much cooler tomorrow and barely reach 40, with cloudy skies and morning showers again. Overnight tomorrow, enough cold air sneaks in to mix some snow in with the rain, but no accumulation is expected as temps stay above freezing and in the mid 30’s.

Look for a rainy, cloudy, and raw Thursday that’ll pretty much be a washout. We might get a break in between waves some time in the afternoon, but rain returns again Thursday night. Highs Thursday in the mid 40’s.

Friday morning’s commute may be tricky as the core of the steadiest and heaviest precip moves through. We’ll have rain, heavy at times, with localized flooding possible in poor drainage spots. Then, we’ll slowly dial back the rain and begin to cool off. I’m going to keep the chance of a parting flurry in there, but even if we do get a flake or two, expect no accumulation or anything bothersome.


Saturday looks like the best day of the week now as we clear out the skies and have a near-seasonal day with sunshine and low 40’s. Unfortunately, clouds return as a small disturbance slips to our south on Sunday, but we won’t have enough cold air in place to make a major impact. We’ll go into it as we get closer, but we could see some wet flakes or a mix. It’s a quick moving system though and impact will be negligible.

We continue to have no major snowstorms on the horizon, but we’ll watch for any changes.
