11:30 AM: Colder Than Expected For Today
Last night’s temperatures were cold across the area, ending up in the lower to mid 10s for most places. Despite full sunshine, however, temperatures are only slowly going up, and the model guidance is continuously correcting itself towards a colder solution for today, with the latest models only showing highs in the upper 10s to lower 20s today. A similar scenario also happened in December with one day where highs were originally expected to be in the mid to upper 30s but only ended up near 30 degrees, and given the latest observations, it is reasonable that highs end up colder than expected today.
With sunny skies, the expectation for today is for highs to end up in the upper 10s to lower 20s degrees across NW NJ and SE NY and the lower 20s across the rest of the area. Temperatures may get close to 25 degrees in some areas near NYC.
