Deep Freeze On Long Island Tonight
The deep freeze is here. We have seen 34 straight days of above normal temperatures but that streak ended today as temperatures have been falling off all afternoon and will continue to fall tonight. Long Island temperatures will have that deep freeze feel with temperatures by morning in the low to mid teens and wind chills down near zero.
Satellite loop shows dry air overhead and much of the cloud cover has moved out to the east of the coast. There were some ocean effect snows going on over Eastern Long Island during the day and this evening but those snow showers should disappear before too long.
Tuesday we will see a good deal of sunshine, much less wind, and temperatures will rebound back to near 30 or so. The rebound in temperatures will continue on Wednesday with highs getting back closer to 40 however Wednesday morning could be a night of clear skies and little or no wind. That means cold spots especially in Suffolk County in the Pine Barrens could be in the single digits again.
The moderation in temperatures will continue on Thursday and Friday with highs back in the 40s. Saturday we will see a onshore flow of chilly air and the chance for a cold rain with highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s. Longer range we see an active pattern with more cold air masses coming down next week. There are some signals that we could see more precipitation but the models remain rather uncertain at this point. We will have more on this later. Here is overnight model analysis.
