Brushed By Some Rain Later Today More Rain Wednesday Night Into Thursday
Clouds came in overnight and we are seeing lots of clouds around. The first of two lows will be headed our way today. The lead system runs up to Southern Indiana and then center jumps to Southern West Virginia and then offshore. If we had any sort of cold air around this would have made for an interesting winter weather event. Instead we have temperatures in the 40s to around 50 and a flow coming in from off the ocean that will likely give today a rather raw feel to it and certainly nothing like the springlike 60s of yesterday.
Radars are showing some rain developing to the south of NYC and it appears that some areas will be brushed by this rain today into tonight. It doesn’t appear to amount to very much and much of it will be gone before daybreak Wednesday.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Wednesday during the day looks to me like a nothing day with lots of clouds with temperatures in the upper 40s to lower 50s. The light flow off the ocean continues and then we watch as a second low pressure area develops to the west in Pennsylvania and rides northward into Upstate NY.
This low moves through fast and brings a quick round of rain Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Most of the 1/2 inch to an inch of rain forecast over the next 48 hours will fall during this time frame.
Weather conditions will start to improve Thursday with sunshine returning along with a gusty wind and temperatures in the 50s. Like last week cold air comes in for a couple of days with some sunshine Friday Saturday and Sunday. Highs all three days will be just in the 30s. Friday and Saturday night look to be cold nights with lows mostly in the teens to low 20s. Long range it is wash rinse repeat next week with nothing major on the way and little if any chance at all for accumulating snow.
As far as snow goes one has to go where the snow has been all winter long and that is north of I-90 in upstate NY and Northern New England. Once again this area will see snow from this double round of weather system. The vast majority of the snowfall comes Wednesday night and Thursday and there will be some active lake effect activity later Thursday into Friday as an upper trough slowly swings eastward.
