Another Shot of Snow Comes Overnight Wednesday!

More Snow on the Way.

 

Good Morning,

 

Behind yesterday's early rain, low clouds hung tough across much of the Tri-State Area, and fog became fairly widespread and locally dense in the afternoon... But early this morning, as the wind out of the west and northwest start picking up, the low level moisture has been all but scoured out of the Northeast, and it won't be coming back for a while...

But, that being said, we are probably going to have winds gusting to 30 or even 35 mph at times... This will take temperatures mostly in the lower and middle 40s and make it "feel like" its in the 30s most of the time...

Nonetheless, we're expecting to see at least some sunshine today, and most of us will welcome some drier weather...

The sky tonight should average partly cloudy (probably clear early, but some high clouds should roll in later), and most temperatures will wind up in the 20s and 30s... Actually, if the wind was to diminish quickly enough, and the sky stays rather clear before midnight, then temperatures in some suburbs could wind up in the lower 20s or even the teens (like in Connecticut and on Long Island, where the snow is still knee-deep) before the arrival of high, thin clouds cause most temperatures to stabilize...

The next wave of low pressure that we'll be having an impact on our weather will be gaining some momentum later today and tonight in the southern Tier of states... With clouds expected to thicken and lower tomorrow, temperatures should be mostly in the lower 40s — and most places will encounter some rain and wet snow before nightfall...

Precipitation-type issues are going to be directly related to the fact that the initial push will be rather light and spotty, and boundary layer temperatures would justify mentioning rain as well as some wet snow... Also, the idea we want to convey is that the Tri-State Area should be on the very northern fringes of this precipitation shield, while the body of low pressure slides by to our south tomorrow night and early Thursday morning...

So, a small and slushy accumulation (probably somewhere on the order of 1-3 inches) is probably in store for Wednesday night and wee hours of Thursday morning before this storm heads out to sea... Locally higher amounts could be attained, but this is probably most likely across central and southern New Jersey...

There should be some sunshine returning on Thursday, and Friday will be a decent day... As we talked about yesterday, there are still some speculations being made about the possibility of snow snow over the weekend...

Well, even though I typically don't see both the domestic models and the European reach some sort of consensus THIS EARLY (from about five days out), it looks right now like a wave of low pressure will begin to form Saturday afternoon in the eastern Carolinas, or near the Virginia Coast, and it will really only be 'getting its act together' once it is moving out to sea Saturday night and Sunday morning...

Of course, southeastern New England and Long Island could be in a relatively close proximity to this low pressure system when it undergoes a rapid intensification, so this is something we should not overlook...

Most residents on Long Island or Connecticut would probably agree that if it didn't snow for at least a week out there, that would be fine with them... And, if there's suddenly a few inches of snowfall that occurs Saturday night into Sunday, this would come as 'insult to injury'.

Have a good day!!!
