NYC SNOW SLEET RAIN EXPECTED TOMORROW
NYC SNOW SLEET RAIN EXPECTED TOMORROW
NYC SNOW SLEET RAIN EXPECTED TOMORROW – Good morning everyone. A weak area of moisture is transiting the region, keeping clouds socked in for the time being, and the slight chance of a few light flakes in the air. However, most of the action on the radar isn’t hitting the ground, so don’t get too excited or concerned.
Cloudy skies will be with us until late morning/early afternoon, then the sun will peak out and we’ll achieve mid to upper 30’s. Clearing skies won’t stick around for too long, because our next large system is heading our way from the west. This approach is always a stake in the heart for the chance of any big snow storm. However, it’ll be a good one for areas upstate, and there should be enough stubborn cold air to make things interesting here to start.
The chance of snow will increase overnight as we head towards sunrise tomorrow morning. This will be the overrunning phase of our system. Any snow that does fall should begin to mix with sleet by late morning the latest, then eventually change to all rain by noon or closely thereafter. Rain will be heavy at times and don’t be surprised to hear a rumble of thunder or two. It’ll be a cold rain with highs near 40.
As far as snowfall is concerned, we could see a coating to 2″ before everything washes away, but it all depends on how the overrunning sets up. Sometimes with this type of approach, the precip associated with the warm front goes just to our north, the “warm” air moves in, and we’re left with the just the rain associated with the cold front/primary low. My best advice is if you’re commuting tomorrow morning, give yourself some extra time. If nothing is going on, use the extra time to stop and get yourself a bagel with lox and some coffee.
Cold temps and wind return for Thursday, with upper 20’s to low 30’s as highs. We play the game of teens as lows once again Thursday night into Friday, then we begin to cloud up again Friday as the next system begins it’s long approach; highs in the low to mid 30’s. On Saturday, we remain cloudy but warm up into the mid 40’s with another westward system approach. Expect a virtual rainout on Sunday again and highs 45-50.
We continue to play this game of bad timing/path of these systems in terms of if you enjoy snow. Below normal temps continue to transit our area, but low pressure off to our west gives us just enough warmth to keep things all rain or mostly rain. Regardless, we still need to watch for any surprises and if we see anything on the long range that has any legs, we will discuss it. As of now, this pattern continues and it looks as if the end of February will give us even warmer air ahead of these systems with the south finally warming up.
