I was going to post in the LR thread that the NWS increased qpf amounts for day 4 and 5 to 2.5”. I was also going to ask the Mets on here if it was possible some of this could be white not wet, but then I saw the scroll and the sci was taken down so nooooo

It could accumulate rather quickly given the frozen ground. Maybe a quick inch in some places. But it will be light and very fast moving.



We warm up the rest of the week. Back above freezing and maybe even hitting 50's on Friday. Rain likely Friday and Saturday.

WU says it might start around 1pm for Bloomfield. Does that timing seem correct Frank? I thought it would be later, like 3ish.

Pete -

1pm seems early but these things have a tendency to move in earlier than expected. 2pm is a good call at the moment.

To sum up yesterday's low temperatures in the Hudson Valley and Northwest jersey and interior Southwest Connecticut Connecticut. The conditions I'd been looking for finally took hold Saturday night and Sunday morning as the winds died down after midnight and the deep snow cover and clear skies finally allowed us here in the North and Westland to get to the double digits below zero.

Poughkeepsie in the middle of the Hudson Valley ended up getting to -14° below zero.

Brewster in Putnam County in the Hudson Valley ended up getting to -12° below zero.

Danbury Connecticut in SW CT ended up bottoming out at -14° below zero.

And a town in northwest New Jersey in Sussex County whose name now escapes me seemed to be the low for the area getting to -16° below zero yesterday morning.

Makes my -6.1° below zero, which I was a little disappointed in, pale in comparison. It looks like that's it for the subzero readings for a while, hopefully they return in a couple of weeks.

Looks like the Warmicists will have their day starting at the end of the week.

Freezing rain and snow is working through PA now. Getting into western NJ. Hearing roads are icing over fast. Makes sense considering we're in the 20's. Be careful out there. Leave work now and work rest of day from home, if possible.

very few people have that luxary frank. I know no one that can work from home. You think it'll be bad here round 5 pm? Are we talking like iceing like last year with those massive accidents in Jersey and NYC area?

Thanks Frank, this is very helpful. I'm the weather guy in my office and I've passed this along to everyone, and a few people have decided to finish their day at home. I would do the same if I could.
