NYC SNOW SLEET RAIN WIND CONTINUE – Good late morning everyone! Well, we got the storm, we got the wind, we got the flooding, and we had enough cold, but unfortunately it didn’t pan out for Long Island, NYC, and the Jersey Coast in terms of big snow amounts. That being said, areas away from the coast are getting exactly what we called for snow-wise. As I’ve said in my forecasts, these are the hardest to predict, because one missing ingredient or one additional ingredient can make the wheels fall off, especially at the coast during March. The reason why I stuck with my forecast until the very end, is because I saw the cold core of air sticking around, possibly wrapping up into the storm. Many models had the final result correct, but due to path and warmer air. The cold air remained in place, but the southern area of energy ended up being the dominant one, when all it was projected to do was help energize the northern wave. In essence, we were all wrong to some degree, even the models, and what we have is a sloppy mess to deal with in the NYC area. So now we dust ourselves off, get off of the canvas, and move on to see what’s down the road for us…..but first we deal with today.

For the rest of the day, snow, sleet, and rain will continue to flip flop back and forth, causing a dangerous condition as far as icing on roads, steps, and other surfaces. Winds continue to gust to near 50 mph in many areas, and close to 60mph at the coast. There is concern about one more cycle of coastal flooding at high tide later this evening/tonight with the help of this storm being so close to shore, and the full moon playing a large factor. Continue to stay off of the roads unless there is an emergency, so that first responders can assist when needed, and cleanup crews can get head start on trying to quell a serious icing issue brewing overnight for tomorrow’s rush hour.

Once the main area of low pressure passes, light snow and flurries will stick around tonight, lows in the upper teens. Morning flurries may stick around tomorrow, with partial clearing and windy conditions in the afternoon; highs in the low 30’s at best. On Thursday, the sun breaks out, but it will remain windy with highs again in the low 30’s. Friday, after morning sun, clouds increase again as we watch yet another system approach the area, highs near 40.

For Friday night, we watch for the prospect of maybe some overrunning energy ahead of this system and possibly some snow changing to rain by Saturday. Then possibly some rain changing back to light snow on Sunday/Sunday eve as colder air swoops in from behind. We’ll continue to keep a close eye on things as this complicated, active, and cold March continues with no relief in the immediate future.
