Wintry mix potential weekend of Jan 18-19, 2020

Recommended Posts

Stayed snow all day on Long Island. About an hour ago the sleet mixed in. 
 

now drizzle. I’d say 2 inches in west Babylon. And now it’s drizzling

 

Whoever  said it would be mainly snow and drizzle at the end bravo man

Well that’s wrong it changed to drizzle 20 mins ago in west Babylon 

I guess south shore warmed from LLJ, but the mid levels never warmed here. 32.8 and snow continues

Temp here hasn’t budged in an hour, stuck at 32.8, probably the difference

We did have steady rain here in part so f NJ, topped out at just under 2, but again I think that was due to lousy rates and time lost to dry slot. Sometimes, well often, I don't get much even when areas around me are cranking....it really is puzzling.

No matter WHAT the setup is LI always seems to do better than the city, its pretty crazy especially for a storm like this with SE winds.

Check out this rain snow line. Coming at me from all sides. Would love to understand this

That’s one of the weirdest radar returns I’ve seen for snow.

Look at a satellite image on google maps of Long Island. You will clearly see why. I don’t know why people don’t understand this phenomenon. URBAN HEAT ISLAND EFFECT. NYC and most of the 5 boroughs up to Yonkers, and west into immediate NE Jersey. Too much concrete. Simple!!

Doesn’t explain why we snowed when Rockland county mixed. It’s not just that.

It’s funny I drove to mount Vernon and it was snowing heavily I came back to the Bronx it was just alerting with some mangled flakes. I didn’t get that, temperature was also 29 there and 32 in the Bronx. I’m sure places to the north got a bit more on this last batch!

I drove home from the city. The road conditions changed dramatically almost on que near the bronx/yonkers line. I'm right at the border and its above freezing and been a mix for the last half hour but it seems a bit to my north temps are still below freezing.

I'm happy to see that Long Island got into some of the accumulating snow. My sister had 1.5" in Suffolk County. Others on the the North Shore had more.

Interior areas torched between 850 mb and 700 mb. Even the Poconos had sleet with temperatures in the teens this afternoon. The further east/north you got the colder you were aloft in that critical zone....especially on LI and CT (even if your surface was closer to 32).

Had about 2 inches of snow and sleet IMBY. Then nasty freezing rain with temps. stuck in the 20s.

Confirmed by dual pol. 3.2” brings me to 9.7” for the year. 

I flew down to FL today (stuck 90mins extra when the snow started at JFK), so of course this was going to do well for us. ;) 

Good to see a decent event for once this winter.
