Feb 13, 2011: NYC To Reach 50 Degrees Tomorrow

Today brought mostly cloudy skies across the area and a few snow showers as temperatures were warmer than yesterday’s, generally in the 40s across the area. Tomorrow will be even warmer, reaching the 50 degree mark in NYC, and after a brief cold spell tomorrow night into Tuesday night, even warmer temperatures will return, reaching the 60s on Friday.

Tomorrow’s Outlook:

As the storm mentioned yesterday will move through the northern Northeast tomorrow, a warm air mass will briefly move into the area with 850 mb temperatures between 6c and 9c, and along with partly to mostly cloudy skies and a southwest wind, high temperatures will be in the mid to upper 40s for most of the area, with lower 50s in the immediate NYC area. Windy conditions will develop by the afternoon hours and continue through the evening and overnight hours. Tomorrow will be the warmest day across the area since January 1-2, almost a month and a half ago.

Tuesday – Thursday: From Cold To Warm

Tuesday will bring a brief cold spell across the area, along with windy conditions, as high temperatures only rise into the lower to upper 30s. The overnight hours will bring lows in the 10s north and west of NYC, however by Wednesday, a southwest wind returns, and high temperatures surge into the 40s again. Thursday will be even warmer, with highs in the 50s across the area, and overnight lows well above freezing in some places will help melt the snow pack quickly.

Friday And Beyond: Warm, Then Colder Again

As a storm develops in the Great Lakes region, warm air will push into the region, bringing high temperatures into the lower to mid 60s for parts of the area while the Northeast sees rain. Even in Northern Maine it is expected to be warm enough for rain to fall.

By Saturday, the storm’s cold front will move through, with some showers expected but no washout. Colder temperatures then return to the region, close to the average for this time of the year, with a stormy pattern developing starting with a storm on the 21st. Stay tuned for more information on the longer range.
