Updated Winter 2012-2013 Outlook
NYC Area Weather
Since the winter outlook was issued at the end of November, three snow events have affected the area during the month of December, with accumulations mostly to the north and west of NYC while Central Park has only recorded 0.4 inch in the entire month. The final outlook expected December to be slightly warmer than average with slightly below average snowfall; this was the overall theme of December, but the month ended up even warmer than expected. The majority of January, however, is shaping up to be mild for the region, and the outlook for January has been revised to slightly warmer than average for the region.
