Icing Developing Tonight
Snow Squall Wednesday PM Bitter Cold Thursday
Chance Snow Friday
Satellite and radars are showing that precipitation is revving up to the south and heading northeast so everything seems to be going according to plan. There are no changes to the snow forecast from yesterday. We will see snow west of NYC this evening with the rain snow line shifting eastward as the back edge of the snow shifts eastward at the same time. The amounts are not an issue here as they will be completely manageable. Temperatures however will fall into the teens and 20s shortly after any precipitation ends so icing is likely to develop overnight. This will start to happen from west to east late this evening and then during the early morning hours. Whatever falls will not have time to dry off. Even areas that get very little in the way of snow could see some icing develop overnight.
Regional radar shows the blossoming area of snow across Southern Pennsylvania . Moderate snow is falling in many areas with sleet and snow down to Washington DC/ Baltimore. All of this is moving northeastward.
Local radars are beginning to see increased activity to the south and west of NYC. Temperatures have risen in many areas in New Jersey, Southeast NY Long Island and Connecticut to over 40 in some places so it will be mostly rain near the coast with snow at first well inland before it begins to change from west to east this evening.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
The bitter cold air is going to arrive later Wednesday afternoon and ahead of it, like we see in the summertime there will be a narrow line of snow showers and snow squalls where it could briefly snow very hard for about 15 to 30 minutes before it moves along. Then the bitter air arrives along with strong winds, wind chills that will drop to -10 or lower and temperatures Thursday morning in the low single digits and in some places below zero.
Thursday we will see ineffective sunshine with highs just in the teens. The cold air slowly begins to pull out on Friday and as warm air moves eastward with a weak disturbance, there could be some snow Friday afternoon into Friday evening. It could be the kind of system that produces a coating to perhaps a few inches in some areas. We will look at this closely later tonight once this first system winds down. The real warm up happens over the weekend as we reach the 40s by Sunday and the 50s next Monday and Tuesday.
