NYC Unseasonably Cold Today
Good morning everyone. That cold air for Thanksgiving has finally arrived with a delay, but it is here and we expect a chilly day today. Temps should modify fairly quickly tomorrow, but our next system is already waiting in the wings to bring us a more prolonged hit of chilly temps and very cold nights.
We’ll also watch those on the Great Lakes shorelines of the Northeast for some potentially very heavy Lake Effect snows between Monday and Wednesday. Those are always very tough to predict down to the mile where they will set up, but areas such as Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Watertown, and Erie, need to watch closely.
In the long range, we will see this parade of systems, gradually marching us into a very cold start to December, with a few things we are keeping on eye on snow-wise. Right now the best potential to see some accumulating snow, remains interior parts of the Northeast and New England; especially Maine.
For today, look for sunshine, light winds, and unseasonably chilly temps. We’ll have highs in the upper 30’s to low 40’s at best. Clear skies and calm winds tonight should help us drop into the upper 20’s to low 30’s.
We modify tomorrow under increasing clouds ahead of our next system. That’ll also help “boost” us into the upper 40’s to near 50 for a more seasonable feel. Rain moves in by late in the evening and it should be a rainy night.
Rain should be gone on Monday just before or just after sunrise. Highs near 50 should be short-lived, and temps should drop through the 40’s before sunset. We’ll also see an increase in winds for a blustery and cold night in the mid to upper 20’s.
Temps don’t recover much on Tuesday as the winds continue and we have highs in the 35-40 range. Lows will dip into the mid 20’s overnight, and we could see some teens well N&W of NYC.
Cold air continues to hold on for Wednesday, with more sunshine and highs in the upper 30’s to low 40’s. We will gradually modify to low to mid 40’s for Thursday, then mid to upper 40’s Friday. The workweek as a whole looks dry aside from the Lake Effect snow potential for eastern Great Lake shores.
