Dec 31: After today’s snow, cold and windy

Verification for Wednesday: I expected mostly sunny skies with high temperatures in the upper 20s to lower 30s northwest of NYC, and in the lower to mid 30s for NYC and closer to the coast. My high temperature northwest of NYC was in the lower 30s, and for NYC high temperatures were in the lower to mid 30s, so my forecast verified.

Verification for Wednesday Night: I expected increasing clouds with low temperatures in the lower to mid 20s northwest of NYC, and mid to upper 20s for NYC and closer to the coast. Temperatures however did not drop much overnight, with temperatures remaining in the upper 20s to lower 30s for NYC, and further away from NYC temperatures were into the mid to upper 20s. So my forecast was a bit too cold, but overall not too far away from the actual results.

Today: Cloudy. Snow, heavy at times, falling until 1 PM, then scattered snow showers, mixing with rain near the coast. High temperatures will be in the lower to mid 30s north and west of NYC, and in the mid to upper 30s for NYC and closer to the coast. Snow accumulations will be between 1 and 3 inches, with the higher totals the further north you go.

Tonight: Cloudy. Scattered rain and snow showers. Low temperatures will be in the mid to upper 20s north and west of NYC, and in the lower to mid 30s for NYC and closer to the coast.

Tomorrow: Cloudy. Scattered rain showers, with snow showers mixing in the morning north and west of NYC. High temperatures will be in the upper 30s north and west of NYC, and in the lower 40s for NYC and closer to the coast.

Tomorrow Night: Cloudy. Scattered snow showers. Low temperatures will be in the lower to mid 20s north and west of NYC, and in the mid to upper 20s for NYC and closer to the coast.

Longer Term Update:

The issue for the second storm has been resolved as of last night, and the second storm should not affect us with anything more than cold, wind and scattered snow showers. While places from Boston and further north and east could get a lot of snow with that storm, we will stay far away from it to only get mostly cloudy skies and scattered snow showers. Conditions will also become increasingly windy for Saturday and Sunday, with high temperatures in the 20s to lower 30s across the area. Temperatures will begin warming a little on Monday into the upper 20s to 30s, and should stay there for most of the week. Then attention will turn to late next week into early next weekend, when the next possibility for another storm exists.
