Tranquil Ground Hog Day. Bright, Tolerable Temps…

Synopsis:

January 2023 has come to a close and is the warmest January on record for Central Park. This is a 154 year old record. Record keeping began in 1869. Simply amazing. The old record was January 1932, the mean temperature for that month was 43.2º. This January the mean temperatures was a sultry 43.5º.

A tranquil Ground Hog Day is in the forecast for Thursday as weather systems will be weak over the Northeast.  Readings will moderate some and skies will be bright.

An arctic front will push through Friday morning. Remember back to Christmas Weekend?  This will be a similar blast with high temps starting off around 30º during the morning and free falling into the teens by late day. An isolated snow squall is possible during the first half of the day. Wind chills by the evening will be near zero. A slap in the face heading out doors for sure.

Frigid sunshine will greet us for the first Saturday of February. A strong Arctic high will settle over the region. Temperatures will remain at least ten to fifteen degrees below average for afternoon highs.

Readings will soar on Sunday as the Arctic high rapidly moves offshore and a return Southwest flow develops. Readings will be at around twenty degrees higher than Saturday. The latter half of the weekend will definitely be the better half.

Stay tuned.

Scattered snow showers are possible with the most concentrated area along the coast and to the South and East through mid morning.

Sun & Clouds. Tolerable Temps, but Windy…

Synopsis

The sun will finally return today as the storm that gave the area a deluge departs into Eastern Canada. Clouds will roll in from time to time. Readings will be several degrees above the average high of the upper 30s. Winds will be busy with gusts up to 40mph . The difference between strong low pressure to our Northeast and strong high pressure in Texas will cause a tight pressure gradient. The map above shows the black lines of equal pressure (isobars), when they are tightly packed it correlates to stronger winds.

By Friday, readings will cool down to near average temperatures as a Canadian airmass works in under mostly  sunny skies.

The weekend looks decent for late January. Conditions will remain tranquil along the East coast with once again very mild temperatures as weak high pressure dominates. No major changes are expected for the beginning of the week..

Snow, Rain, Mix Wednesday Starting Around Midday…

Synopsis

Low pressure will develop over the Southern Ohio Valley on Wednesday and move into the Northeast. Scattered snow showers are possible this morning. Many areas will remain just cloudy. Well to the North in the Mid to Hudson Valley a bit of snow is possible from mid-morning on. Steadier precipitation will move in from midday to early afternoon. It looks cold enough for most areas to get a hit of wet snow at the onset (the exception being Central & Southern areas). Along the I-78 corridor to Northern parts of NYC into coastal Connecticut a quick slushy coating is possible. Some of this region may remain just wet. Here the snow or sleet will rapidly go over to rain. Farther North and West, snow and sleet will fall for a longer duration, hence the higher amounts. Last call map is above. A period of heavy rain is likely this evening into the first part of the night in all areas with many regions totaling well over an inch of rain. We are plenty saturated and could use a break from the wet weather.

Skies will brighten on Thursday as the storm departs out to sea. Readings will be several degrees above the average high of the upper 30s.

By Friday, readings will cool down to near average temperatures as a Canadian airmass works in under mostly  sunny skies.

The weekend looks decent for late January. Conditions will remain tranquil along the East coast with once again mild temperatures as weak high pressure dominates.

Stay tuned.

Wednesday:

Cloudy. Scattered snow showers in some areas this morning. Wet snow developing by midday to early afternoon, rain over central and Southern sections.

Tonight:

Heavy rain through the first part of the night. Lows in the lower 40s along the urban corridor, the the upper 30s inland. Southeast to West winds at 10-25mph with higher gusts, diminishing late.

Partly sunny. Highs in the mid 40s.

Friday:

Mostly sunny. More seasoanble. Highs in the upper 30s.

Finally Some Sun Tuesday…

Synopsis

A mix of sun and clouds is expected today with tolerable temperatures as high pressure moves to the Southeast coast.

Skies will be mainly clear tonight.

Low pressure will develop over the Southern states on Wednesday and move Northeast. Precipitation will move in  during the mid to late morning. It looks cold enough for most areas to get a hit of wet snow at the onset (the exception being Southern areas). The potential is there for an accumulation before the changeover to rain later in the day. First guess map is above. A period of heavy rain is likely Wednesday evening. Well North a heavy mix is possible, hence the higher snow amounts.

Skies will brighten on Thursday as the storm departs out to sea. Readings will be several degrees above the average high of the upper 30s.

By Friday, readings will cool down to near average temperatures as a Canadian airmass works in under mostly  sunny skies.

The beginning of the weekend looks decent for late January as conditions will remain tranquil along the East coast.

Stay tuned.
