More Snow on the Way for the Weekend! Bitter Cold and Wind Return Too!

More Snow on the way

 

Good Morning,

 

Today is going to be a relatively mild day for mid-February, since the winds out of the west and southwest ahead of an approaching cold front should give temperatures a decent boost...

Most highs will be in the 40s and lower 50s, with a blend of sun and clouds... The odds do seem to favor that the day will be ending on a cloudier note, and we are going to be undergoing some big changes over the next 36 hours...

The aforementioned arctic cold front is going to press into the Northeast and mid Atlantic states late tonight, and a low pressure system is expected to form along this boundary... This, of course, does bring with it the likelihood of precipitation, and there should be some accumulating snow along the I-95 corridor — especially late tonight through midday or early in the afternoon tomorrow in areas south and west of New York City, and at virtually any time late tonight, tomorrow and tomorrow night across much of southern New England, as well as for central and eastern parts of Long Island...

Each of the global models has a different interpretation of where the next wave of low pressure will be developing tomorrow, and how strong it will actually be before it intensifies even more on Sunday when it heads towards the Canadian Maritimes...

Therefore, there are still a few unresolved issues that will need to be dealt with when it comes to pinning down the exact snowfall amounts... But for now, we are most confident about predicting a 1-3 inch snowfall in the City and most of its adjacent suburbs, with the vast majority of that coming between midnight tonight and noon tomorrow...

I think that the real 'wild card' here is that the potential for as many as 6 inches cannot be ruled out on eastern Long Island and in southeastern Connecticut... The rationale is that with that low pressure wave deepening along this cold front Saturday NIGHT, the snow may be prolonged for those areas located north and east of the City, and this would result in some higher snow totals...

Temperatures will be falling into the 30s tonight, and there will be very little recovery occurring tomorrow...

Sunday, as that strong low pressure system located east of Cape Cod during the morning begins to pull away from the Northeast, it will be even colder with a gusty northwesterly wind, which will average 12-25 mph with some higher gusts... This should take temperatures mostly in the upper 20s and lower 30s and make them "feel more like" they're in the teens at times!

Dry and cold for Sunday night and on President's Day... It will be sunny on Monday with highs in the 30s, and temperatures should moderate quite a bit on Tuesday and Wednesday with some rain possible...

Have a good weekend!!!
