Feb 8, 2011: Cold Week, Warmer Next Week

Note: Due to technical difficulties, tonight’s update will be brief, and the 5-Day Forecast page was updated for the immediate NYC area only.


After the storm which brought a light rain/mix to the area overnight, cloud cover cleared up today as winds increased and temperatures steadily dropped. Tonight will bring cold temperatures, in the single digits away from NYC, which will lead to wind chills below zero when combined with the wind. Colder temperatures will continue through the mid week, however afterwards warmth will finally begin to return.

Week Ahead: Cold Continues

Tomorrow will bring highs in the 20s across the area, however Thursday will be the coldest day, with highs only in the upper 10s to mid 20s across the area with a few upper 20s possible in the immediate NYC area. Thursday night will have lows again in the single digits away from NYC, with Friday warming up into the upper 20s and lower-mid 30s.

Longer Range: Warmth Returns

On Sunday, temperatures will warm up into the upper 30s to mid 40s as a storm brings light rain but mostly stays to the north of the area. Monday will bring slightly warmer temperatures, with Tuesday cooling down again. Another warm up, however, is possible by the end of next week. Stay tuned for more information on the longer range.
