Winter Storm Warning New Jersey NYC Long Island Hudson Valley Connecticut
The second winter storm in 2 days and the third system in the last 4 days will arrive late this afternoon and early evening. It could start as some light rain for an hour or so before the atmosphere cools and then snow takes over. Snow falls at night so it sticks. There is an area where temperatures are going to be rather tenuous. Yesterday it was over Long Island. Today it is over Central New Jersey. where it could either way numbers wise. Here is my call. The only real change i made is to add a band of 6 to 8 inches inland.
Weather conditions will be deteriorating as we go through the day with increasing and thickening clouds. Temperatures will be in the upper 30s and even some lower 40s which is pretty typical of March snow events as the low levels warm. Aloft it is rather cold so once the precipitation arrives it will go to snow after a rainy start. Precipitation begins in Southern PA around 1pm, Philadelphia, around 4PM and NYC around 5pm. Long Island Hudson Valley and Connecticut follow shortly afterwards.
Eyes will be on the regional and local radars as we are starting to see the beginnings of precipitation developing to the south. It is going to get busy later today.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
The peak of all this is between 7pm and 1am with the heaviest snow. A band of sleet will likely develop as warmer air tries to move northward tonight. Here is the HRRR model view of all this beginning at 4pm today and ending at 7am Monday morning.
After this storm goes by weather conditions improve on Monday with sun and clouds a gusty wind and highs in the 30s. Then prepare for some very cold weather for this week with temperatures at night in the teens and single digits at night and highs just in the 20s to lower 30s beginning on Tuesday and lasting through Thursday.
