  1. Slight chance of severe weather later this afternoon/evening. Per NWS OKX: Attention then turns to the approaching cold front this afternoon into this evening and an associated line of showers and thunderstorms. High resolution models are in reasonable agreement with a broken line of showers and storms crossing the area between approximately 3pm and 8pm. Some of these storms could be strong to severe, with the best chances for any stronger storms across the Lower Hudson Valley, northeast New Jersey, and into southwest Connecticut, where warmer surface temperatures will help maximize instability. Damaging wind gusts are the greatest threat in any stronger storms that are able to develop, although an isolated tornado isn`t entirely out of the question. Showers and storms should decrease in intensity as they approach the coast this evening and encounter more stable marine air.
  2. Heavy rain, some thunder and lightning and gusty winds here in Sheepshead Bay
  3. 37 degrees at 6 am. Was supposed to be 32-33 for overnight low.
  4. Wind gusted to 31 mph and temp up to 57 at noon at my station in Sheepshead Bay. Barometer 28.83.
  5. 51 at my station in Sheepshead Bay with a southeast wind.
  6. Sun peeking out here at work just east of JFK airport.
  7. Lowest barometric pressure I can find is 28.88 at several locations in NJ.
  8. NYC/Nassau and as mentioned above all of coastal NJ upgraded to high wind warnings.
  9. Upton just upgraded Suffolk County to a High Wind Warning. Also changed the wording in the Wind Advisory area for gusts up to 55 mph with isolated gusts up to 60 mph for NYC metro and coast.
  10. Wind advisories up for basically the entire area tomorrow afternoon. From OKX late afternoon AFD: With the low rapidly deepening as it moves away, quick pressure rises with the onset of cold air advection will produce gusty conditions in the afternoon and evening with gusts continuing well into the night. The strongest gusts will be in the afternoon and early evening when modeled 850mb winds range mostly 45-65 kt. Will issue a wind advisory for all zones 18z-00z. Gusts up to around 50 mph are anticipated. Even some coastal areas may reach advisory criteria based on sustained winds of 30 mph.
  11. Some mangled flakes mixed with the rain here in southern Brooklyn as well. Temp 37 degrees.
  12. At the high for the day now at my station on a gusty nw wind...68 degrees.
  13. Back edge of precipitation at nyc/long Island latitude already in western nj and moving quickly
  14. Meanwhile....that band of snow over eastern PA looks pretty healthy and appears to be heading to NYC
  15. Nice article that explains why thunder sounds louder and travels further/lasts longer in colder temperatures: https://weather.com/science/weather-explainers/news/2019-02-21-cold-thunderstorms-winter-temperature-inversion-thunder
  16. From OKX AFD: Fcst models show a developing axis of elevated instability with MUCAPE up to 500 J/kg moving across the NYC metro area and Long Island this afternoon, right on the back edge of the rain shield, and have added isolated thunder to the forecast for those areas.
  17. Measured .75 total with both .25 with the first wave and .50 from the second. Wind gusted to 29 mph with the first wave and 25 with the second.
  18. Another nice burst of moderate snow here in southern Brooklyn Edit: make that heavy snow and gusty winds
  19. In Mineola. Temp dropped from 34 to 30 as the snow got heavy
  20. If that line holds together it will hit nyc right around the beginning of rush hour. I bet there aren’t any salt trucks out.
  21. 1.20 inches of plain rain at my station in Sheepshead Bay. Over 6.5 inches for the month so far.
  22. I’m driving on West St by the Freedom Tower. Some big (but very thin) pieces of ice falling down from the tower to the ground.
