Storm could leave “significant” snowdrifts in the New York area as temperatures plummet

What you should know

  • Vastly different conditions are expected for the tri-state area only in the first half of the week.
  • Wednesday has the potential to wreak a bit of havoc in our region with the possibility of the city and surrounding counties seeing “significant” snowfall, although at this point, the risk of a major snow event seems less and less likely.
  • Before that comes, a warm front has several rounds of rain for Monday along with temperatures in the 60s.

NEW YORKNew York City has yet to see its first measurable snowfall of the season, but all of that could change in a matter of days. The temperature surely will.

Wednesday has the potential to wreak a bit of havoc in our region with the possibility of the city and surrounding counties seeing “significant” snowfall, although at this point, the risk of a major snow event seems less and less likely.

While there is still some uncertainty around the forecast trajectory, the model trends continue to follow that lower accumulation trajectory. However, the city could still see notable accumulations.

What seems much safer is a drop in temperatures, thanks to an unusually warm Monday with spring temperatures topping 60 degrees in the city and surrounding areas. A wind advisory is in effect Monday afternoon for locations that could see gusts of 50 mph. Check out the latest severe weather alerts for your neighborhood here.

The drop in temperatures follows, with highs expected to reach 20 degrees on Tuesday; until 40 degrees and 30 degrees on Wednesday.

Conditions will be cool and cold enough that when the low pressure system moves overnight from Tuesday to Wednesday, things will be primed for possible snow.

Thursday stays cool, in the high 30s, before temperatures spike to the highs 40s on Friday and return to the 50s for another warm weekend.
