  • Spring-like Warmth.
     
    Today will be a few degrees warmer than yesterday, likely reach the mid-60s.  Tomorrow could near 70° under mostly sunny skies. Calm breezes with warm afternoons come to an end late Saturday. High clouds shroud the blue sky on Saturday afternoon before rain and wind start up on Sunday. A big chill returns as highs will struggle to exit the 40s on the second half of the weekend. Temperatures remain very chilly and feel even colder with gusty winds lasting all day Sunday, Monday and even some of Tuesday. Wind chills will remain in the 20s during the coldest part of each day. The winds settle and sunshine returns for late Tuesday and all day Wednesday; however, winds pick up again with rain just in time for Thanksgiving day.  This is the first year in a decade that it will have rained heavily on Thanksgiving. The last 10 years have only had two Thanksgivings with rain: 2014 had light morning snow showers, and 2010 had a light drizzle. Almost 2 inches of rain fell on Thanksgiving 2006. In addition, confidence is growing that the winds will not cooperate with the balloons for the parade this year.

  • Warmer than average temperatures are on the way out!

    High pressure continues to bring us fair skies and above average temperatures. This trend continues through the first half of the weekend. A winter storms over the northern plains will press east bringing us clouds, showers and gusty winds as early as late Saturday night. Once the system clears, we will feel a drop in temperatures with highs in the 40s while overnight lows fall to the 30s. High pressure returns early next week.

  • Spring to Winter.
     
    We missed tying yesterday’s record by one degree at some climate stations around the area. Today’s weather will be warmer, but the records are out of reach. Tonight’s weather turns cool once more, before our last day of warm air for the foreseeable future arrives tomorrow. Colder air and rain moves in for tomorrow night, allowing for snow to mix in by early Sunday morning.  Sunday is just wet and windy with a raw chill and highs only in the mid 40s. Upon sunset on Sunday, some of the rain changes back to snow, lasting until midnight with no accumulation. A hard freeze likely occurs into Monday morning with very cold air and very gusty winds. Wind chills will be in the 20s on both Monday and Tuesday morning as winds top 45 mph. The windiest days are Sunday and Monday.
     
    Quiet weather returns for Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday with a seasonable chill. Wet weather is almost certain for Thanksgiving. The question is: how heavy will it fall and when?  It’s too early for specifics.

  • Pleasant weather is on the way out!

    High pressure takes us through Saturday afternoon with increasing clouds and above average temperatures. By Saturday night, the high moves off the coast allowing a cold front to move in from the west and crosses the tristate by Sunday morning. Wind and rain is in the forecast for late Saturday night and ending as a possible wintry mix along with gusty winds by Sunday morning. High temperatures will mainly be in the 40s with lows in the 30s through mid-week.

    Darryl
  • High Winds.
     
    Full gales continue today and tomorrow. The highest wind gusts were last night at 50mph. This afternoon’s gusts will near that intensity. Temperatures are suffering as a result. Highs today struggle to leave the 30s, and wind chills will be in the 20s all day. Today’s clouds part for afternoon sunny breaks. More sunshine returns by Wednesday. Thanksgiving day will be breezy with light rain, possibly mixing with snow before dawn on Thursday morning. Dry weather for Friday This chilly weather lasts for the next 10 days, ending November on a seasonable note. Reservoirs continue to fall as an “Extreme Drought” was declared for portions of our reservoir watershed. Reservoirs has dropped to 57.3% of capacity, about 20% lower than normal for this time of year. Rainfall is more than 8 inches below average.

  • A Taste of Winter

    Thanks to a strong area of low pressure, we are under a WIND ADVISORY until 10PM tonight. This low is currently center over Quebec, Canada and will slowly move northeast overnight and into Tuesday. The low becomes stationary over the Canadian Maritimes by Tuesday. A weak area of high pressure, currently over Indiana will move east and off the coast giving us fair weather for “Get-A-Way” Wednesday. Clouds and a chance of showers are in the forecast for Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Highs will be in the 40s and 50s while overnight lows fall to the 30s and 40s through Thanksgiving weekend.

    Darryl
  • Another Windy Day.
     
    Sunshine attempts to break through the clouds this afternoon, but the winds will still be kicking.  Gusts to 35mph today. Tonight will be mostly clear as winds diminish. Tomorrow’s sunshine helps the air warm to 46°. Thursday will be mostly cloudy with on and off light rain in the city; however, some ice and snow could mix in at times to the North.  Almost all of Friday’s rain holds off until Friday night. Gusty cold winds return for Saturday, with a gradual clearing for Sunday. Early next week should become wet again, as cold air returns for the end of next week.  December 1st shows a large scale winter weather feature that bears close watching.

  • We trade gusty winds for a chance of showers

    After Monday’s shock to the system thanks to much colder temperatures and gusty winds, Tuesday was easier to take. We had a mostly sunny sky, with highs 4 to 7 degrees below average along with gusty west to northwest winds that peaked at 37 mph at Central Park, 55 mph at LaGuardia and 43 mph for JFK. Our active winds will continue to relax overnight as the mercury falls to the mid-30s. Unfortunately, wind chill values will range from 25 to 30 degrees by the Wednesday morning wake-up.

    A storm system leaving the plains will continue to push east bringing us increasing clouds and a chance of showers from Wednesday night through Black Friday.

    Darryl
  • Low pressure is approaching form the west. Increasing clouds with scattered light rain and or drizzle is in the forecast from the late overnight hours through the first half of the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Highs from the upper 40s to the low 50s with overnight lows in the 30s and 40s. There is a chance of much needed rain by Tuesday of next week.


    Have a safe and pleasant Thanksgiving holiday weekend!


    Darryl
  • Very Wet Week.
     
    Our recent dry spell is quickly coming to an abrupt end. After a seasonably chilly and sunny Monday, rain begins early tomorrow morning, becoming heavy by tomorrow night. The milder wind pushes temperatures tomorrow into the 60s. Gusty winds, however, won’t make that 60° feel pleasant. Driving rain with sustained 30mph winds begin tomorrow afternoon. After a lull for Wednesday morning, another round of moderate showers arrives for Wednesday afternoon. Our more than 9 inch rainfall deficit for the year, will improve by around 2 inches this week. December begins on a tranquil note with sunshine and cool air for Thursday, leading into a pleasant weekend.

  • Flooding Rains.
     
    Mild weather this morning turns into heavy downpours by the afternoon. Winds from the South peak around 2pm, gusting to 40mph. Anticipate huge puddles and local flooding for this evening’s commute. Round 1 of rain ends by 9pm tonight with nearly 2 inches of rainfall. Cloudy, mild and foggy weather begins the day tomorrow. Round 2 of rain starts falling by tomorrow afternoon, lasting until just before daybreak on Thursday.  A round of thunder isn’t impossible with either event before each exits.  An additional 1 inch falls. A gradual cool-down with clear weather lasts through the weekend. Wet weather begins next week, with widespread cold air to follow (a giant coast-to-coast deep freeze for end of next week).
     
     -mike
  • Less active weather is in the forecast for the overnight. After a very wet Tuesday with rainfall amounts from 0.75” to 2.16” for the Bronx and Brooklyn, we get a chance to dry out before the next round of rain and possible thunderstorms moves in. If you will be out during Tuesday night through early Wednesday you may encounter patchy areas of fog with lows in the mid-50s. Showers and possible thunderstorms are in the forecast for Wednesday and Wednesday night followed by a clearing sky and cooler temperatures that will take us through the first weekend of December.

    Darryl
  • Thunderstorms.
     
    Today’s weather isn’t so bad beyond the morning fog. Even winds will be light through the afternoon with temperatures in the mid 50s. The real action begins after 4pm, when thunderstorms enter the area bringing downpours and an additional inch of rain. That’s on top of the 2.25” of rain that fell yesterday, a record for the day at 2 of the 3 climate reporting stations in the city. We need 12-15 inches of rainfall in one month in order to end the drought, or 6-9” to ameliorate it. All of yesterday’s and today’s rain could ameliorate the drought by about 40%, as we’ll need 3 more storms like this to completely end the drought. There’s more rain on the way for next week, too.
     
    Plenty of sunshine returns by tomorrow morning for a clear and calm day. A few extra clouds are in the forecast for Saturday with a more seasonable chill in the 40s. After the wet start to next week, a cold and active wintry pattern emerges for the rest of December. The chances for snow are looking good in the next 10-14 days.
     
     -mike
  • Showers and possible thunders for tonight

    Wednesday was another day of much needed rain for the boroughs and the tristate area. Rainfall amounts so far for Central Park, LaGuardia and JFK are 0.39”, 0.58” and 0.31”. Temperatures were 58/53, 61/54 and 59/51. As a result, we were 12 to 15 degrees above average for the end of November. Showers and possible thunderstorms could bring an additional quarter to a half inch of rain through the overnight. High pressure will return us to a dry weather pattern with seasonal temperatures from Thursday through the first half of the upcoming weekend.

    Darryl
  • December Chill.
     
    Cooler weather is driven in today by noticeably drier northwest winds. Sunshine remains all afternoon. Tomorrow begins cooler with wind chills around 30°. The weekend will feel like typical December: clouds on Saturday with wind, colder on Sunday with sunny and calmer conditions. For the second day in a row, there are hints at a sugarcoating of flurries for Monday morning only. That’s worst case scenario, but at least it keeps the impatient snow lovers happy. Sunshine returns by late Monday morning. Tuesday through Thursday will be milder, but still around average in the upper 40s. Next Thursday night into Friday is our next big rain/wind event where snow could be a component. Strong cold follows for next weekend.
     
    New drought numbers will be posted later today, and included in tomorrow’s update.
     
     -mike
  • Drier & Cooler Weather

    Low pressure moves across the Canadian Maritime taking the wet weather away from the northeast region. A broad area of high pressure currently over Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi will bring a drier air mass to the northeast through late Sunday. In the meantime breezy and cooler weather will be with us with highs cooling to the 40s and lows in the 30s by the weekend which is about right for early December.

    Darryl
  • Taste of Winter
     
    This weekend’s weather will begin to feel more like Winter with chilly, dry air through Monday, capped with some light snow for early Monday morning. Similar to yesterday afternoon, clouds return by 2pom today, and winds turn gusty tonight dropping the wind chill into the low 30s for Friday night plans. Tomorrow has a few extra clouds, but gusts of wind to 20 mph helps the 45° high feel extra chilly. Sunday is calmer with more sun. Late afternoon clouds Sunday signal the change in the weather for late Sunday night into early Monday morning.
     
    The hardest snow to forecast, is when the event is less than 1 inch. There needs to be just enough moisture to get the flakes falling, but not too much moisture so that snow doesn’t accumulate. There’s a good chance of having a sugarcoating on cars early Monday morning, likely wrapping up by dawn.  Sunshine returns for the rest of the day. Next week’s weather will be very active and seasonably chilly with 2 significant rain events, the latter possibly ending as snow on Thursday/Friday. The coldest air since March 3rd, 2016 arrives in 7 days. Next Saturday’s wake up weather will be in the mid-20s, with wind chills in the teens. The cold lasts well beyond that.
     
    mike
  • Our weather will continue to slowly cool under a variably cloudy and breezy sky through the weekend. Daytime highs will range from the mid to upper 40s with lows around the mid-30s into next week. The next best chance of rain will be late Sunday night into Monday and Tuesday through Friday of next week.

    Darryl
  • High Volatility.
     
    This morning’s light snow and rain wrapped up just as the sun rose.  I was impressed to see how the timing and intensity played out almost exactly as modeled 5 days ago.  That’s usually a good sign for how the models will react to the future scenarios for this upcoming winter—like passing the first “test”. The trouble is: the maps have been all over the place for later this week into next, with storms disappearing and re-appearing every other day. I don’t think we’ll be as lucky regarding forecast accuracy and long lead time as the weather pattern becomes colder and more active by Friday.
     
    Here’s how this week looks as of today: This afternoon starts sunny as highs climb to average, 48°. Tomorrow begins with filtered sun as clouds return throughout the day, and rain begins again at night. Wednesday starts wet with dry weather returning by late morning.  Thursday and Friday will be much colder with highs barely leaving the 30s, and gusty winds howling into the weekend. Another round of wintry weather could near by Sunday. Stay aware of last minute changes to the forecast through the weekend.  The city’s first freeze occurs by Saturday, ending a 250-day stretch of a frost-free season. This year’s duration is longer than average, and even increases the slope of the trend line since 1970.
     -mike
  • High pressure building east from Ohio will bring a clear to partly cloudy sky overnight. Clouds return Tuesday afternoon as low pressure moves off the coast of North Carolina / Virginia. There is a slight chance of showers Tuesday afternoon and a better chance of showers Tuesday night. A cold brings a push of colder air Friday through the weekend.

    Darryl
  • Cloudy and Chilly.
     
    This morning’s sun is likely the only sun we’ll see until Friday. Clouds return this afternoon, adding to the chilly feeling. Rain arrives tonight, turning to light accumulating snow after 6pm N&W. Tomorrow will start damp, but most of the ½ inch of rain will be over by daybreak. Wednesday will be heavy on the clouds, and temperatures stay in the low 40s all afternoon. The changes to the forecast (and that high volatility I mentioned yesterday) begin to occur for Thursday, with light snow possible during the morning and midday potentially accumulating to about an inch on cars and train platforms by lunchtime Thursday.  Serious cold blows in with gusty winds on Friday. Saturday morning’s wake up weather will feel like the teens thanks to wind. Next week’s weather will be even colder.
     
     -mike
  • High pressure moves northeast allowing rain to move in from the south and west. We’ll have periods of rain through the overnight and ending early Wednesday. A cold front will bring a colder air mass and gusty winds as early as Friday. Highs in the 30s and low 40s with overnight lows in the 20s and 30s from Friday through the weekend. At this point, it looks like the next best chance of rain after tonight will be Monday and Tuesday of next week.

    Darryl
  • Colder with Wind.
     
    Last night’s rain dropped another half inch of water. Our rainfall deficit for the year is only 6 inches below average for the year (as opposed to more than 9” just 2 weeks ago). Today’s weather is calm and cloudy with a damp feel, but tomorrow’s late morning sunshine is followed by a gusty wind and much colder air mass. Highs will be well below average into Friday and Saturday, with highs not leaving the 30s.  In fact, wake up weather will be below freezing for the first time this season in the city on Friday.  Wind chills will feel like the teens on both Friday and Saturday morning with gusts to 30mph. Sunday ends cloudy as late night snow changes to rain for Monday. This first round of cold is just the beginning: in 7 days, wind chills are forecast to be below 0°F for most of the northeast as record cold breaks out.
     
     -mike
  • A drier day for the boroughs after receiving 4/10 to 6/10 of an inch of rainfall since Tuesday. Wednesday saw highs around the mid-40s and lows in the low 40s. That said, temperatures were 3 to 4 degrees above average for December 7th. Our weather should remain dry until early next week. The only issues will be colder temperatures as a northwesterly flow brigs highs in the 30s and low 40s while overnight lows fall to the 20s and 30s. The coldest period will be Friday night through Sunday.

    Darryl
  • The overcast skies have cleared and we were still 2 to 3 degrees above average for December 8th. 45 degrees was reached at Central Park, LaGuardia and JKF for Thursday after overnight lows of 40, 43 and 38. A push of cold air and gusty winds are in the forecast through the weekend. And there is a chance of a little winter weather late Sunday into Monday. At this point, highs are forecasted to climb out of the 30s to the mid-40s by Monday, so any snow will quickly turn to rain. Be sure to check back with News 12 this weekend for updates.

    Darryl
  • Teens.
     
    The bitter air today will feel like the teens all day thanks to winds gusting to 35mph. They have already gusted to 30mph earlier this morning. It won’t feel any warmer than 27° today. Another deep freeze returns this evening as actual air temperatures plummet into the 20s for the first time since March 3rd, 2016. Winds relax a bit for tomorrow as highs remain around freezing. Sunshine prevails today and tomorrow; however, clouds return for Sunday morning. By Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening, light snow begins falling and could accumulate into Monday morning. Monday’s weather should feature a slushy accumulation before sleet and rain mixes in by the end of the day. Today’s modeling mixes some warmer air in, but that could easily become colder again tomorrow. Snow is not cancelled. Finely tuned details on the Monday system TBD tomorrow.
     
    The more active pattern brings in another possible winter weather event on Wednesday, before record cold settles into the area on Thursday. That air mass originates from Siberia, crosses the North Pole, and brings our morning lows down into the teens with subzero wind chills in 6 days.
     
      -mike
  • Colder.
     
    Light rain ends by 9am, with clouds remaining for the midday. A few breaks of sun return before the sun sets at 4:28pm. Beginning tomorrow, the sunset will start occurring later in the day. Daylight hours are still shorter through the solstice next Wednesday (sunrise is later), but the sunlight shifts a few minutes later, hence the later sunset times. Tomorrow starts chilly with sunshine, as highs fail to reach the average of 44. A light dusting of snow occurs tomorrow night into Wednesday morning, with no rain following to wash it away. Partly sunny skies are forecast for Wednesday. Thursday and Friday’s actual air temperatures stay below freezing: the low 20s. Winds will be very gusty, and wind chills will be below zero (as low at -15°F: borderline Wind Chill Advisory criteria) . Despite all of the cold air, Saturday’s snow and ice could be mostly rain. There are 5 days to watch that next system.

  • We had a little verity in our weather to begin the new work and school week. Rain, drizzle, patchy areas of fog with highs and lows of 46 and 34 at Central Park, 48 and 35 at LaGuardia, 48 and 34 at Kennedy. So for the day, 2 to 3 degrees above average with about a half inch of much needed rain. A mostly clear ski is in the forecast for tonight with lows from the low to mid-30s. Tuesday looks like a pleasant late fall day with highs in the mid-40s under a mix of sun and clouds. The clouds take over Tuesday night with a chance of rain and snow showers with lows falling to the mid-30s.

    Get ready for a big drop in temperatures. By Thursday daytime highs will be in the 20s while overnight lows fall to the teens.

    Darryl
  • Dusting Tonight.
     
    Sunshine returns this morning with a cool breeze. Today starts milder than usual, but temperatures plateau at 43° this afternoon thanks to a thick deck of clouds arriving by noon. The afternoon cloudy skies help to keep things chilly so that tonight’s snow sticks on contact. Flurries begin as early as 10pm and transitions to a light steady snow, ending by 3am. There is little accumulation, likely just a dusting on the cars and sidewalks. Tomorrow begins sunny and dry, melting any accumulated flakes by 10am. After a sunny day tomorrow, the Arctic assault begins tomorrow night. Lows plummet to new records by daybreak on Thursday with wind chills near zero.  New record minimum highs may also be set Thursday and Friday meaning the afternoon high temp was never that cold on that day. Central Park records should stand (the 6° record was set in 1874, four years after President Grant founded the Weather Service and recordkeeping began), but the airports’ lows will easily be broken: 15° from 1962 is the temperature to beat. Wind chills on Friday will be well below zero, as low at -15°F in gusts.
     
    Following the Siberian Express to end the workweek, light snow begins on Saturday morning. This snow should accumulate to a few inches before changing to freezing rain midday, then plain rain by Saturday night. Rain lingers into Sunday. Next week’s weather keeps the active pattern in play, with a system to watch every 3-4 days.
     
     -mike
  • After a day under a mostly cloudy sky and temperatures as much as 3 degrees above average, our weather pattern will turn colder as a strong cold front bring colder temperatures for Thursday and Friday. Get ready for daytime highs in the mid to upper 20s and overnight lows in the teen. These temperatures will feel colder due to gusty northwesterly winds that will generate wind chill values in the single digits and below zero by Thursday night and Friday morning. Fortunately, this bitter cold weather will be short-lived as a southerly wind pattern returns Friday night. We also have light snow in the forecast for Friday night into Saturday. Fortunately, the snow will chance over to rain as highs for Saturday are forecasted for the low 40s and mid-50s by Sunday.

    Darryl
  • Spiraling Downward.
     
    Mostly sunny skies today help us warm to 41° for the last time with sunshine for a while.  (It does become milder this weekend, but the weather will be damp.) The wind and cold will make tomorrow morning feel like 15°, but tomorrow evening will feel like 5°. Wind chills dip below zero for Friday morning as the Arctic air races in beginning tonight. Winds will gust to 35-40mph by tomorrow afternoon, pulling down even colder air for Friday. Actual air temperatures by Friday morning will be in the teens—that’s the coldest it will get during this cold snap. As clouds return for Friday afternoon, light snow could begin as early as Friday night. The Saturday storm trended colder and earlier, but still keeps snowfall accumulations in the 1-4 inch range before the changeover to rain mid-morning Saturday. In addition, the end of the messy weekend is just coming into view on the high-resolution charts and Sunday may have freezing rain issues. More exact timing will follow in tomorrow’s update  Either way, the mess clears out for Monday, with a  clear and seasonably cold start to next week.
     
    The chances of a White Christmas are increasing, especially since the active weather pattern of a system every 3-4 days peaks on Christmas weekend.

  • Feeling Like Winter through Friday.

    I hope you enjoyed Wednesday’s fair skies and temperatures that were one to three degrees above average as a blast of very cold air and gusty winds takes over through Friday. Due to sustained winds forecasted to reach 20 to 30 mph and potential gust reaching 50, the National Weather Service has issued a WIND ADVISORY from 9am – 6pm Thursday. The combination of very cold air and gusty winds will generate wind chill values in the single digits by Thursday afternoon and Thursday night. Hats, gloves, warm shoes and layered clothing will be important through Friday. Fortunately, this cold spell will be short as southerly winds return Friday night just as a light snowfall moves across the boroughs. At this point, it looks like snowfall totals will reach one to two inches before changing to rain as highs reach the mid-40s by Saturday.

    Darryl
  • Zero to 60.
     
    The fast and furious winds pull down Arctic air through tonight. Winds could gust as high as 60 mph by tomorrow morning, hence the high wind warning effective this evening. Gusts have already topped 44 mph at dawn today, and the worst is still hours away, set to blow in tonight.  Wind chills will feel like 0° at daybreak Friday. Tomorrow afternoon winds relax and sunshine prevails until thin clouds return through the late afternoon Friday. Snow arrives late tomorrow night, accumulating to 2-3 inches by dawn on Saturday. The changeover to rain occurs around 8am Saturday compacting accumulations to a slushy, waterlogged slop by noon. Light rain and fog develop for Saturday night. Then, we’ll jump to 60 degrees on Sunday (yes, 0-60° in 2 days) as milder air moves in for the second half of the weekend. Fog could become quite dense on Sunday.
     
    Following Sunday’s slush-a-thon, another round of light rain could end as freezing rain and snow on Sunday afternoon. Any uncleaned walkway quickly refreezes for Monday morning’s cold. Next week starts relatively quiet with sunny, calm air as temperatures stay seasonably chilly.

  • The Bitter Blast Will be Short-Lived!

    Cold temperatures and gusty winds will keep wind chill values in the single digits overnight under a partly to mostly clear sky. Due to the winds forecasted to gust to 55 mph, the National Weather Service has issued a HIGH WIND WARNING until 6AM Friday. Daytime highs will reach the upper 20s to the low 30s as winds begin to relax while shifting from northwest to southwest. Increasing clouds and a light snow is in the forecast from late Friday night into Saturday morning. The good news is that our temperatures will warm to the upper 30s to the low 40s by Saturday morning changing snow to rain. We have a wet weekend ahead of us as a cold front bring another round of rain for Sunday. Highs are forecasted to reach the mid-40s for Saturday and mid to upper 50s for Sunday.

    Relief is on the way,

  • Warmer in Alaska.
     
    This morning’s temperature in Anchorage, Alaska is 21°F.  It’s 19° and falling here in the boroughs. The wind chill remains in the single digits until noon. 5 days before Winter arrives, today will be mostly sunny with clouds arriving later tonight. Wind chills warm to 14° at best. In fact, look for halos across the afternoon sky as the thin ice crystals could refract sunlight into sun dogs, too.  This typically happens in the Arctic. Snow begins accumulating after midnight with steady snow lasting through dawn, 7:14am Saturday. Winter weather advisory posted through 10am tomorrow. 1-2 inches accumulates in Brooklyn before changing to rain by 9am. 2-3 inches of snow accumulates in the Bronx before changing to rain by 11am. There won’t be enough rain that follows to completely wash the accumulation away, but compaction to about a half inch slush and slop is a more likely scenario. (That’s actually modelled now).
     
    Temperatures stay above freezing through the weekend, reaching on Sunday with dense fog and drizzle. Cold air rushes back in for Monday, potentially putting down another coating of snow later Sunday evening as Sunday’s rain ends as snow. Next week is seasonably chilly and quiet. Next weather event is about a week away, trending milder with rain by next Friday.

  • A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued.

    After a day with diminishing winds and temperatures 14 to 15 degrees below average, snow moves in late tonight. Accumulations are forecasted for 1 to 2 inches by Saturday morning. Snow chances to a brief wintry mix before changing over to rain as daytime highs reach the mid-40s. Clouds and showers remain in the forecast for the weekend with highs on Sunday reaching the low to mid-50s. Colder are drier air moves in Sunday night as high pressure dominates our weather pattern for the start of the next work and school week.

    Darryl
  • In spite of the clouds that are taking us into Monday evening, our sky will clear as high pressure brings us a fairly quiet weather pattern through mid-week with only a slight chance of a few showers on Thursday.

    The Winter Solstice (the first day of winter) begins at 5:45 A.M. Wednesday, December 21st. This is the shortest day of the year when the earth is tilted furthest away from the sun.

    Darryl
  • First Day of Winter.
     
    The brutal cold follows the path of the weekend snow: it will be history soon. Fall 2016 is also history: welcome to Winter! For the rest of this week, a milder, more seasonable feel takes over. Highs will climb into the low 50s by next week. The weather is sunny and dry until the weekend, when light rain develops for Christmas Eve and the first night of Hanukkah. It’s a tad too warm to snow in the boroughs on Saturday, but light snow should fall well north of west (more than 50 mi away) from the city. Christmas Day is sunny and dry with seasonably chilly highs in the mid 40s. Early next week continues the warming trend to more than 10 degrees above average, also bringing our next chance of rain. The remainder of the year (up until the 30th) will be milder than average, with lows likely not dipping below freezing.  That milder trend ends abruptly on New Year’s Eve, as another round of Arctic air surges into the area. That’s also out next chance of winter weather, almost 9 days away.
     
    -mike
  • The first day of the winter season gave us a mostly cloudy sky with temperatures as much as 2 degrees above average for Central Park (40/30), LaGuardia (42/33) and JFK (41/30). The clouds will be sticking around through the first half of Thursday with a 20% chance of showers before noon and snow north and west of the city. A clearing sky takes over Thursday afternoon through Friday night before another round of clouds and rain moves in as early as late Friday night through Saturday night. At this point, it looks like a fair sky and chilly temperatures are in the forecast for Christmas Day.

    Darryl
  • Flurries, then Sun.
     
    Today’s weather begins cloudy and chilly with a brief burst of morning flurries, ending before 10am. Sunshine quickly returns by noon, melting any accumulation. Highs reach the mid 40s this afternoon as gusty winds pull in chilly air for tonight, keeping skies clear through tomorrow. Christmas Eve begins wet and cool with light rain lasting through the early afternoon. Rain ends by the start of Hanukkah. Christmas Day is sunny and clear.

  • Thursday was not a bad with a day. In spite of the clouds that was with us through the first half of the day we were 7 to 8 degrees above average for December 22nd. High and low temperatures at Central Park were 49 / 37, 50 / 37 for LaGuardia and 49 / 34 at JFK. You will find a mostly clear sky for tonight with lows falling to the mid-30s. Friday will begin under a mostly sunny sky with temperatures reaching the mid to upper 40s by Friday afternoon. Anyone looking to take care of some last minute holiday shopping early Saturday will need an umbrella as a storm system moves in for the southwest. We should be done with the rain by Saturday afternoon, with a mostly sunny sky is forecasted for Christmas day with temperatures reaching the mid to upper 40s.

  • A cloudy sky with a chance of a few spotty showers are in the forecast through Tuesday morning. Easterly winds will shift overnight becoming southerly causing overnight lows to rise from the mid-40s to low 50s by Tuesday morning. High pressure will bring a brief round of fair weather through Wednesday followed by clouds and much needed rain by Thursday. Potential rainfall amounts around a quarter of an inch by Thursday evening.

  • What a day!

    A cloudy sky with a few spotty showers started our Tuesday, but the clouds cleared by the late morning early afternoon hours as temperatures climber to well above average for late December. We were actually 20 to 22 degrees above average with highs and lows of 60 / 50 at Central Park, 62 / 52 at La Guardia and 62 / 48 at JFK. The pleasant weather continues for Wednesday, but it will not be as warm with daytime highs forecasted for the mid-40s. We’ll have increasing clouds Wednesday night into Thursday morning with showers beginning towards the end of the morning commute and ending shortly after lunchtime.

  • Chilly, then Wet.
     
    Today’s sunshine will be accompanied by a gusty wind at times, keeping the wind chill in the mid-30s all day. Tomorrow’s weather begins wet and windy as light snow begins falling N&W west of the boroughs at dawn; however, a steady, wind-driven rain starts the morning hours in the city lasting all day. Gusts could reach 40mph tomorrow as the temperature remains in the 40s. Roughly a half-inch of rain will fall, ending by Thursday evening. Cold weather immediately follows tomorrow night, freezing any standing water in place for Friday morning. Sunshine barely warms us up on Friday as highs remain seasonably chilly in the 30s. Weekend weather is dry and cold. Wind chills are in the teens and 20s at midnight with possible flurries into Sunday morning.
     
    Early next week turns mild again with rain.  Another round of super cold air follows for the end of next week.

  • After Tuesday’s temperatures that were 20 to 22 degrees above average, Wednesday delivered a partly to mostly cloudy sky with highs and lows of 40 / 38 at Central Park, 42/39 for LaGuardia and 43/39 at JFK. For the day, we were 5 to 7 degrees above average for December 28th. We’re still dealing with rainfall deficits of 1.17” for the month and 7.83 inches for the year. Fortunately, a storm is on the way that is forecasted to bring rainfall amounts from .5 to .75” to the borough by the Thursday evening commute. As the rain ends, our winds will become northwesterly and gusty through Friday.
