Feb 6: Watching For Next Week

A verification for today’s storm will be done separately, probably either tonight or Monday.

Today: Snow will end in the afternoon for places west and south of NYC. Places further north will have cloudy skies, starting to clear in the afternoon. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 20s across the area.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Low temperatures will be in the lower to mid 10s north and west of NYC, in the mid to upper 10s in the north and west suburbs, and in the upper 10s to lower 20s for NYC and closer to the coast.

Tomorrow: Sunny. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 20s north and west of NYC, and in the lower 30s for NYC and closer to the coast.

Tomorrow Night: Mostly Clear. Low temperatures will be in the lower to mid 10s north and west of NYC, in the mid to upper 10s in the north and west suburbs, and in the upper 10s to lower 20s for NYC and closer to the coast.

Short Term Forecast:

As I mentioned in my 7 AM update, at least half of northern NJ did not see any snow from this storm at all. The cut off line of the snow was very sharp, with places in southern NYC getting as much as a few inches of snow and northern NYC not getting any snow at all. Any place that is seeing snow will probably continue to do so until this afternoon, when the snow should end. Places further north will have cloudy skies at first, clearing to mostly to partly cloudy skies later in the afternoon.

Early Next Week Forecast:

Next week appears to have a very bright start, with Monday being mostly sunny and temperatures returning into the mid 30s for areas closer to New York City. By Tuesday or Wednesday, however, things could get more interesting. The models have been showing a storm affecting the area for the past few days, with some models such as the GFS and GGEM bringing as much as 10 inches of snow in the area. We should expect more consistency to be shown probably by tomorrow night or Monday morning, which is when we should have an idea of where the storm could track. It appears as of now to be further north than today’s storm, but we can’t know for sure yet. Stay tuned for more updates to come.
