NYC SYSTEM PARADE CONTINUES AS SPRING NEARS
Good morning everyone. Sunny skies and modifying temps have reached the NYC area and we’ll have a pleasant day before our next system arrives. The parade continues as we’re looking at a weather-maker every 5 days or so at this point.
Look for sunny skies and light winds today, with increasing clouds late; highs in the mid to upper 40’s. Overnight, clouds lower and thicken even more, then rain moves in some time between midnight and 3am.
On and off rain will be with us till early afternoon tomorrow, but no widespread flooding is expected. We should squeeze out about in inch or so of rain before things taper off. As with many of our systems this season, most of the energy is going well north and west of us. Highs tomorrow in the low 40’s, so that rain will be a cold and raw one.
Monday continues to look sunny, breezy, and near-seasonal; highs in the upper 40’s to near 50. Then we cool off to slightly below average Tuesday as that cool air behind tomorrow’s system takes its time getting here. However, it’s short-lived as we modify back to normal on Wednesday.
On Thursday, we might be able to eek out on more dry day, but a system arriving could give us some late rain. We’ll nail down the timing when the week starts, but at minimum, expect some rain between mid afternoon to late evening, then steadier rain overnight Thursday into Friday.
Once, again, we’ll be in the mild zone of that system with low pressure taking a familiar track into the Great Lakes region.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
In the long range, I continue to watch and see if the Gulf opens up to feed anything, but there’s nothing on the immediate horizon. The internet is abuzz again with talk of a major snowstorm here somewhere between March 18th and April 157th of 2050, but take it with a grain of salt.
For us to get a major snowstorm mid-month onward, things would have to work out absolutely perfectly to keep things all snow. Things haven’t worked out perfectly all season, the models have done this every week since December, and it’s getting late in the game.
Again, could we still get a flake in the area? Sure, but it’s going to be hard this year; and talking about a snowstorm 10-20 days down the road with several systems preceding it, is getting old and ridiculous.
