SOGGY NYC NEW YEARS EVE BALL DROP EXPECTED AFTER RAINOUT TODAY
Good rainy morning everyone. We have good news and bad news here for the NYC area. The good news is that there’s no sign or danger of a drought. That’s about all of the good news I have for unless you like rain, and lots more of it.
Rain has entered the picture and we’ll have a few breaks in between, but this isn’t one of them. We have a big batch of steady rain, which could be heavy at times this morning. There could be a little bit of space between late morning and early afternoon, then we’ll get into it again. Expect a cloudy day even during any break, highs in the mid to upper 50’s with a steady south wind.
Also, we have no flood watches up as I type, but use caution regardless with our oversaturated ground. I still think flooding could be an issue, especially in the notorious spots of the Belt Pkwy, Bronx River Pkwy, etc.
Tomorrow we clear out and 50’s will drop through the 40’s early. Look for a windy day as well once this process starts, with steady westerlies and gusts to near 30mph. On Sunday, the wind calms down and sun is bright, but we return back to normal late-December temps; highs in the mid to upper 30’s.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
For your New Year’s Eve in New York City, it’s looking like a rainy one. If you’re heading out to Times Square to celebrate, not only dress warm, but bring full rain gear as well. A system similar to today’s will plague the area from mid to late afternoon, to near or just after midnight. We’ll have to wait to pin down the exact timing, but even if it stops at the stroke of midnight, you’ll be rained on for a while since you have to get to the holding pens early. Highs Monday in the mid to upper 40’s and NYE itself is looking like mid 40’s.
For the rest of next week, Tuesday will be our “Saturday” with clearing skies and temps dropping from the 50’s through the 40’s again. We’ll be back to normal temps for the remainder of the week with highs in the mid to upper 30’s, and we’ll be watching a small disturbance Thursday to see what that does, as well as something for next weekend or early the following week(again).
