Residents of New York, Expect Cold Weather This Weekend

Bryan Dijkhuizen

Through today, a cold front will linger to the north and west of the region. On Friday, an increasing low-pressure system will move eastward across the region.

For the weekend, a cold high-pressure system will develop off of eastern Canada and move across the region.

From late Sunday night into early Monday, a developing low-pressure system over the southern United States will move northward and up the Appalachian Mountain spine, passing just west of the region.

On Tuesday, a weak high-pressure system will rise in, followed by an approaching clipper low throughout the rest of the week.

On Friday, upper-level energy consolidates off the coasts of the Southeast and Lower Mid-Atlantic. As a result, low pressure will form swiftly and strengthen off the coast, causing coastal flooding.

Later throughout the day on Friday, the system will travel northeast and far east of the reference point. The winds will gain up speed throughout the morning hours of Friday, and they will pick up speed during the afternoon and nighttime hours.

With a gusty northerly flow along the backside of a developing low-pressure system that will move off to the northeast through Friday evening, gusts of 30 to 35 mph are expected to be experienced. On Friday, anticipate a significant amount of cloud cover, particularly farther east over the region.

Throughout the day on Friday, clouds will linger around for most of the day in the western areas, with sunlight arriving late in the afternoon in the western parts of the state.

Because the western border of the precipitation shield from the offshore storm system will reach near to far eastern parts, a minor possibility to the low-end likelihood of POPs will stay in situ for eastern zones of Connecticut and Eastern Long Island, respectively.

Any precipitation would most likely be in the form of rain, but there is a chance that it might be mixed in with snow, particularly as the storm moves away late in the day with minimal accumulation anticipated.

Temperatures will initially be in the middle 30s far inland and will drop to the lower 40s in the city and along the coastline.

However, when the departing storm system to the northeast starts to wrap the cold air around itself, another wave of very cold air will begin to trickle into the area late in the day and overnight.

After mid-afternoon, temperatures will continue to decline, with a considerable difference being apparent in the evening as the cooler air moves in.

Another bout of frigid air is expected to arrive in the region on Friday night.

This wave of cold will be comparable to the round of cold that was experienced earlier in the week, if not worse. It may truly feel and become a few degrees cooler this time.

Clear skies are forecast Friday night, with a strong northerly breeze blowing through.

On Saturday, sunlight is forecast, particularly in the early hours of the day. High clouds then begin to move in from the southwest to the northeast throughout the afternoon hours.

Despite the brightness, temperatures will struggle to reach 20 degrees and may perhaps fall short. Throughout the day, wind chills will range from 0 to 10 degrees above zero.
