After today’s heavy rain event, one more day of seasonably mild conditions is left, with highs reaching the upper 40s to mid 50s tomorrow. Winter is not over yet, however; a blocking pattern is expected to develop, with temperatures starting on Thursday staying near to below average across the region for the majority of the foreseeable range. Along with the cold pattern comes the potential for additional snow in the Northeast US and potentially in the NYC area.
A cold front moved through the region today, producing widespread moderate to heavy rain. Totals were generally between 1/2 and 1 inch, with totals locally higher than 1 inch north and west of NYC. Temperatures were also warmer today, peaking in the low to mid 50s east of NYC and the mid to upper 50s from NYC and further west. Breezy south/SE winds were observed today, changing to NW in the evening behind the cold front.
