A strong Cold front is moving through the area. Temperatures tonight will fall into the 20s the upper teens well inland. Winds will thankfully diminish after midnight.
On Monday a secondary arctic front will move through during the afternoon and evening. Energy in the upper levels and a digging trough will cause a storm to form offshore. With that storm will be a trough extending West from the Atlantic into the tri-state area. Flurries are likely by late afternoon Monday. A burst of snow is possible during the evening and night. It is this burst with the above parameters that may yield to a quick coating to maybe 2 inches of snow. The highest amounts will probably be North and East of NYC. We’ll have to see how the radar trends set up Monday evening.
Then, the ARCTIC EXPRESS arrives. Highs will only be in the 20s Tuesday through Thursday. Lows will be in teens in the City, the single digits inland.
On Friday of this week, a storm will be on the map. With all this arctic air in place it looks like whatever fall will be snow and ice. An accumulation is likely at this point. How much is anybody’s guess. Stay tuned.
