NYC NOREASTER SNOW CLOSE CALL
NYC NOREASTER SNOW CLOSE CALL
NYC NOREASTER SNOW CLOSE CALL – Good morning everyone. We have a frigid morning unfolding with areas in the low to middle single digits. Plus, now that we have our reinforcing shot of arctic air in place, we start watching to see how close a system gets to us late week.
Sunny skies continue for today, but so does the wind. With highs in the upper teens, a stiff breeze will keep wind chills in the -10 to -20 realm. Air begins to modify somewhat, and we won’t drop much unless you’re away from the City; where temps will dip into the low teens and upper single digits in the pine barrens and NW of the City.
Tomorrow and Wednesday, upper 20’s are on the menu, so it’ll feel like springtime compared to what we’re experiencing right now. Then, we begin to watch for any low pressure development off the Florida/Georgia Coast.
At this point, we are fairly certain a major system is going to get its act together, but where it goes is the issue. Does cold air win out and keep everything just offshore? Do we find ourselves on the western edge of the Nor’easter’s precip field? Or does it dip in a little closer to give us a little more than expected….
These are all questions that allude us for now, even though we’re only 3-4 days away. The reason being behind this system is another shot of frigid air and timing is key. If colder air moves in too fast, it’ll force everything too far offshore. That being said, areas of New England could find themselves getting a good dose of snow and wind.
Also, anything that develops will be fast moving, so a glancing blow won’t amount to much. Even a slight dip west, would give us a quick 2-4/3-6” type scenario. For us to get anything beyond that, low pressure would have to get fairly close, which means areas of New England could see issues with freezing rain or even some plain, cold, heavy rain.
I think tomorrow morning will reveal a lot more, so stay tuned.
