NYC Rainy Time Coming Ice Issues Interior Parts
Good morning everyone. For those lucky enough to be up early, you caught the last of the sun till some time on Tuesday. Clouds are beginning to increase, and scattered showers will be moving in later on today. Meanwhile, with the colder solution I spoke about yesterday and the lack of 50’s here today, it also spells trouble for interior parts of Northeast, where Ice Storm Warnings and other various winter advisories and warnings are popping up.
Look for a few blue patches this morning here and there if you look carefully, but clouds will continue to lower and thicken otherwise. We’ll have the slight chance of a few showers mid to late afternoon onward, but the bulk of the action remains focused overnight tonight and tomorrow. Highs today will be in the mid 40’s.
Tomorrow will be an essential washout, with rainy and raw conditions, stiff easterlies, and highs in the low to mid 40’s. Expect the possibility of localized flooding in poor drainage areas, and the morning commute tomorrow isn’t looking very pleasant.
For interior parts of the Northeast, cold air will remain stubborn in the higher elevations, as well as trapped in the upper hills and valleys. For this reason, Ice Storm Warnings have been issued in those areas. Expect major icing to occur in the warning areas, and residents in the those areas should stay off of the roads; as well as prepare for blackouts that may occur with ice on the lines and trees.
It takes a while for us to clear out on Tuesday, with clouds and drizzle early, then partial clearing late. Highs in the mid 40’s. New Years Eve itself is looking rain-free, but a gusty wind will develop as cooler air heads in. Party time at Times Square is looking like low to mid 30’s and breezy. Expect wind chills in the 20’s, so bundle up.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
New Year’s Day will be seasonal, sunny, and breezy with highs in the low 40’s. Thursday is looking like the nicest day of the week as winds subside, the sun remains (for a while), and mid 40’s rule throughout the area.
Clouds will probably increase late Thursday for our next rain-maker Thursday night into Friday.
