Don’t ask me how this is happening considering the radar is not showing much here but it is snowing in central Long Island with a temp of 33 and i have a snow coated deck
Take a look at this current temperature map and you can see where the 32 degree line is and it is getting wedged southwestward into the mountains as cold air from New England attempts to dam in. It shouldn’t last for much longer but when the new guidance is already 3 to 4 degrees too warm in some places you have to wonder whether this will by some spots a few extra hours of frozen precipitation.
Radar to the south is showing a large area of precipitation heading this way and in areas north and west of New York City there will be some freezing rain for awhile. I can’t imagine the upper levels holding on to this for too much longer but I’m enjoying it while it lasts. After all it was in the 60s here a little over 24 hours ago with a record high temperature set at Islip and its snowing here now. Roads are wet. Cars are covered with sleet from earlier and there is some snow on grassy surfaces. Amazing.
Everyone should be changing over to rain between now and daybreak or shortly afterward in northern areas. Accumulations of ice will continue inland and there could be up to two tenths of an inch of ice before the change over. It is going to be an interesting morning commute for some areas north of New York City. Rain should total 1 to 2 inches in some places. Weather conditions will improve during the afternoon on Tuesday as this weather system pulls out to the east. Then we dry out Tuesday night into Wednesday with another wave of low pressure coming up Wednesday evening with the chance for some rain or a few showers.
