NYC LONG RANGE WINTER OUTLOOK
NYC LONG RANGE WINTER OUTLOOK – Happy weekend everyone and welcome to the weekly long-range outlook. This time around, I’m going to go a little further into the forecast and into next month, as things are starting to point towards a pattern change. First though, we’ll discuss our current weather.
After record breaking temps on Thursday, cold air has dammed itself back in temporarily. A stalled out front to our south, has brought with it cold air and cloudy skies on this side of the front. A wave of energy will be moving to the south of us this evening and into very early tomorrow morning, giving us a slight chance of some light snow and flurries; highs today in the mid to upper 30’s and lows tonight in the upper 20’s. Sun will return tomorrow and temps will modify somewhat, with highs near 40 and a crisp night in the upper 20’s. On Monday, temps creep up a little more, with sunny skies and highs in the low to mid 40’s, but increasing clouds at night as the rest of today’s stalled out system starts it’s approach. Once again, we will find ourselves in the warm sector of another system, with a cold rain possible on Tuesday and highs in the mid 40’s, then a warmer day on Wednesday with highs near 50, and a chance of rain again with the approach of a cold front. On Thursday and Friday, we’re looking at 50’s again, with winter looking out of reach. However, changes are on the horizon….
NYC LONG RANGE WINTER OUTLOOK
For the weekend of the 20th and into that following week, we see more of the same – storms going to our north and west and quick shots of warm air. It is even possible we may see 60’s again one more time in January before things begin to change at the end of the month. All indicators are pointing to a flip in the pattern, with cold air pouring in from upper NW Canada and storm tracks along the gulf and to our south. What does this mean for us? Time will tell, but we can say that the first week of February will be colder than what we’re getting now, and with cold air in place, it gives us a better shot at some snow. Whether this upcoming pattern change lasts is anyone’s guess, but normal winter weather will return towards the very end of January/early February. So the synopsis is, after a couple of more above normal periods ahead, average to below average temps return and the active pattern of storms continues.

Light rain and snow heading into our area. Some of it is not hitting the ground, but we may see a few periods of light snow/flurries this evening. Little to no accumulation is expected.
