Light snow turns parts of the tri-state area white; Intermittent temperatures are coming – Telemundo New York (47)

What you should know

  • Temperature swings hit the tri-state area this week, from 60 degrees on Monday to 40 degrees on Wednesday and the mid-60s again on Saturday, with a bit of precipitation.
  • A storm system had been being tracked to bring potentially measurable snow to New York City on Wednesday, but that forecast changed; if anything, it might rain a bit. The northern and western suburbs could see 1 to 3 inches.
  • Temperatures stay cool, in the 30s, on Thursday before climbing back to around 50 degrees on Friday and hitting 65 again on Saturday; then we will be well above average temperature for the next week.

NEW YORKNew York City has yet to see its first measurable snowfall of the season, and while a major snow event seemed possible a few days ago, that no longer appears to be the case. All five boroughs may not even be covered in white.

Light snow spread, or at least tried to spread, to the far north suburbs during Wednesday’s morning commute. A secondary low is developing offshore, which could bring some showers or mixed light precipitation to Long Island and the Connecticut coastline in the afternoon and evening.

There are no winter weather advisories in effect for the tri-state area at this time.

Overall, the impact will be low for the region. Most roads must just be wet, and high temperatures are expected to stay well above freezing (around 40 ° C) during the day.

The New York City area, which had been bracing for a significant shock, is now not expected to see any build-up. Rains to the south and east of the city are likely to occur intermittently during the day.

Points further north and west like Liberty and Scranton could see up to 3 inches of snow when the system moves, as those in the Poughkeepsie area are expected to get an inch or less. Measurable snow is expected to remain in northern counties like Dutchess, Sullivan and Ulster, but it won’t be much.

The weather stays cool through Thursday and can dip a little below 40 degrees, then picks up to 40 degrees Friday and, wait, back to the mid-60s on Saturday.

The temperature roller coaster continues as mercury falls back into the mid-40s on Sunday and jumps to 50 on Monday, then steadily rises over the course of the workweek, according to The Weather Authority.

Warmer temperatures are expected for mid-December bringing home above-average temperatures throughout the week.

The average high for New York City at this time of year is 47.
