This will make 13 straight days in NYC of 30 degrees or below. The record for consecutive days below 32 is 16, they may make it 14 tomorrow, but it ends Tuesday. Unfortunately not one record low in Central Park during the whole streak. As I've stated several times this was a nice streak for it's length of sustained cold but nothing extraordinary regarding low temperatures. 3 of the past 4 winters in NYC have had readings of 4 degrees or lower and this mornings low of 5 was the coldest it got in Central Park during this stretch not even matching the lows of those recent winters.

i stand corrected...



Thanks I knew someone would correct me if I was wrong...question, what year was the 16 days.

16 days ended Feb 2, 1961


Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Maybe the sands of time have covered up my memory, but I had thought Central Park hit the low of -2 that night and then the Feb 3-Feb4 snowstorm hit.During the middle of that storm, late at night, their was a brief period of mixing, but it went right back to all snow.I don't think it rose above 32 then.My memory tells me the streak was broken at 16 days a day or two after the storm.As a matter of fact,that 16 day streak was followed by milder conditions with only an inch or 2 of snow right through to spring.However, the period from Dec 11 1960 through Feb 4 1961 had three major snowstorms of 16 plus inches, smaller ones of 3 to 4 and that 16 day sub freezing stretch.Central Park ended with 54 inches of snow, an amazing winter.

I will take your memories over most other sources about such weather history any day! NWS NY, NY does have the dates listed as Jan 19th-Feb 3rd 1961 as being the 16 day stretch. Trying to find a definitive answer, I've found 3 different charts with 3 different ending dates...

A burst of snow (freezing rain / mixed precip for central/southern NJ) is expected later today. Timing is not great. Commute home will be slick. 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.

January Obs and Discussions  - Page 5 Gfs_mslp_pcpn_frzn_neus_3

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

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

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.
