NYC Split Weekend Ahead

NYC Split Weekend Ahead

Good morning everyone and happy 2020! We start our new year off on the quiet and fairly average-side, which is nice compared to the shock and awe of 2018’s frigid blast of single digits and teens as highs. We’ll see none of that in the short to long range range forecast, and aside from some rainy systems, there’s nothing major down road through at least mid-month or so.

Look for clouds and sun today, then maybe some more clearing as we get to sunset-time. Steady westerlies will help keep things feeling chilly, but we are seasonal today in the upper 30’s to low 40’s as highs.

Milder air moves in tomorrow ahead of our next system, and we should pull off the nicest day of the week. Winds relax a bit and go more southwesterly, which only helps a little bit compared to summer, but it still helps. Expect some extra sunshine compared to today, and we’ll have highs in the upper 40’s to maybe a few low 50’s here and there; especially just to our west.

Unfortunately, clouds increase tomorrow night with that next system, and we should see some on and off showers developing late overnight/Friday morning.

Friday is simply not a nice day, with batches of steady rain moving in and out all day. Cloudy skies reign throughout, and highs should be in the mid to upper 40’s.

That system will have a tough time clearing out by Saturday, so expect steadier rain overnight Friday and into Saturday morning, then clouds linger with showery conditions again. We’ll go for low 50’s Saturday, but it comes at a price with that rain.

On Sunday, the sun will slowly return, and cooler air heads back in. Look for breezy conditions and seasonal temps with highs in the upper 30’s to low 40’s; very typical for this time of year.

The long range continues to be snow-hostile for the moment, with anything major very elusive for those who love snow. However, we could see the seedlings of a pattern change brewing for the last 1/3 of January as the jet stream tries to sink further south. It doesn’t necessarily equate to snow for the area, but it may increase the chance for something.

We’ve seen this in the past where systems either go well to our west and north, then get suppressed too far south. We don’t know if that’ll be the case, but maybe we can pull something off during the transition. Right now it’s anyone’s guess, but I’ll be keeping a close eye on any prospects.
