Winter Weather Advisory Inland, Nasty Day Rain Wind Coast
This is a nasty day along coastal areas. Winds were howling all night from the east and northeast at 20 to 30 mph with higher gusts. Temperatures are sitting in the upper 30s and lower 40s right now and it appears that the overnight surge of heavy rain is done. Now we wait for a second round of rain later today into tonight as this storm system and upper air low move to the east. Wind Advisories are up for the New Jersey coasts with gusts of 40 mph+ forecast there. Gale Warnings are up for the coastal waters.
Winter Weather Advisories are posted this morning for the same area as they posted last night so there have been no changes, no additions or subtractions of counties. It covers West Passaic, Warren & Sussex Counties in New Jersey & neighboring Carbon, Monroe, & Pike Counties in Northeastern Pennsylvania. In NY we have Orange, Sullivan, Putnam & Dutchess Counties in the Hudson Valley and in Connecticut Litchfield County. Temperatures in many spots in these counties are at or below 32 this morning. Inland areas will see varying amounts of sleet and freezing rain at times today depending on the temperatures which are going to be struggling around the freezing mark all day.
Most forecast icing amounts will be under a tenth of an inch with higher values as you head northwest into the Catskills. Much of the eastern areas of the Hudson Valley should be free of ice during the day today while in Northwest New Jersey and Northeastern Pennsylvania, icing will vary from place to place depending on elevation or lack there of.
As for snow right now it would seem that an inch or less is doable in most places. Higher amounts are possible in elevated areas and notice the highest amounts are going to be well north and northeast. This has the look of a minor event overall.
Both satellite and radar loops this morning show the rotation of the clouds and the rain around an upper low to the west in Western Virginia. The heaviest rains moved through overnight night and lie mainly across upstate NY westward. Precipitation will be showery in nature going forward for the rest of the day untill that upper air storm passes to our south and east.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
LOCAL RADAR PHILADELPHIA
For the rest of the day into tonight it is miserable. Along the coast strong east to northeast winds, occasional rain, and temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s just make it down right nasty. This will not be a fun day to be sitting outside in Giants Stadium if you are headed there. This should pull away overnight though for Long Island and coastal Connecticut the rains will linger into the morning hours.
Monday will be a windy cold day with some developing sunshine but highs just in the upper 30s and lower 40s. It calms down a bit Tuesday with some sunshine as well as some sunshine on Wednesday. Temperatures will be in the lower 40s on Tuesday and mostly 40s on Wednesday. The next storm arrives later Thursday and this looks like it could be a big rain and wind producer for later Thursday into at least part of Friday.
This should be the last major system we will have to deal with through Christmas Day. Weather conditions next weekend should be reasonable for travel except that winds will be an issue through Saturday across the Northeast & Middle Atlantic states so bear that in mind with regards to air travel.
