These blog posts are for the weather deniers who never check the weather before walking outside. Luckily, meteorology is one of my muses and my co-workers supported my condensed weather updates for NYC so much, I decided to share them. You're welcome.
Precipitation is Coming!
1. Two Storms headed our way
Yes, two. I already know what you're asking: Snow or rain? It is hard to predict. I would prepare for both. The first storm, is going to be relatively quick in its travel, coming in late evening Thursday into Friday. Expect a mix of both snow and rain for your commute Friday morning.
Storm #2 has a name, Harper, and comes to us all the way from the West Coast traveling cross-country with an abundance of snow, ice, and traffic jams! Harper will be with us Saturday afternoon through Sunday with a mixture of snow and rain. But once we hit Sunday night...
2. The Polar Vortex Awakens...
For those of you who don't care to know but are going to know anyway... The Polar Vortex is a cone of low pressure over the North Pole that traps the arctic air where it is most appreciated... over the North Pole... Unfortunately for all of us, that vortex broke and that arctic air is leaking out and coming right for us, which is why the Sunday night low will be a whopping 7 degrees. Monday? The high will be 18 degrees. That is without the windchill. With the windchill, we are looking at temperatures possibly in the negatives. But do not fret, the arctic blast will pass and we will be back to normal cold by Tuesday (hopefully).
Moral of the story:
Now is the time to dress accordingly.
These temperatures are nothing to mess with.
If you got the gear, wear it!. If you don't, get some!
