NYC Wet Snow Possible Wednesday After Mild And Showery Start To Week

Good morning everyone. There’s a lot going on over the course of the next few days, but nothing insane. We’ll go from chilly, to mild and rainy, then a short cold blast mid to late week.

We’ll have a sunny start today, but high clouds are creeping in and they’ll lower and thicken. Look for a chilly day with highs in the low to mid 40’s.

Tomorrow morning, showers creep in and it’ll be on and off all day. Temps rise will into the 50’s, then by 60 by midnight. We could even see a few rumbles of thunder. Rainy and mild conditions remain overnight, and winds will begin to increase out of the SSW.

Showery, breezy, and mild conditions continue on Tuesday, with a rumble or two possible again. Highs will get near or just past 60, then we’ll begin to drop as the cold front passes by in the afternoon/evening.

To our southwest, a weak wave/kink in the front will help keep moisture in the area as cold air begins to work in. Rain will subside before a period of wet snow may move in before sunrise Wednesday, then stick around until late morning. This remains a 50/50 type thing here, and these types of scenarios typically don’t work out 100% or lead to accumulation; especially for the NYC/Long Island area.

Any snow that does fall, will be wet in variety, falling onto wet ground, and after upper 50’s to low 60’s 12-18hrs prior. We also won’t dip below freezing as highs go for the mid to upper 30’s Wednesday. This all leads to a cheap thrill, if any thrill at all.

The cutoff to our NW will be close, but areas N&W of NYC that do see some flakes, have a better shot at seeing some accumulation on grass and tree branches due to some colder air; but unlikely it’ll accumulate in the streets, especially on main roads.

After that, we have a cold Thursday and Friday, before temps begin to modify with our next system during the weekend. That system at this moment looks like a rainmaker, and it could be a good one at that.
