Swiped by snow on Sunday
Good morning! It’s your favorite meteorologist checking in again 😛
The details on Sunday’s storm have finally come into focus and I’m here to break it down for you.
In short, stock up on your Super Bowl food and drink today, not tomorrow! 😅
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for 3-6 inches of snow on Sunday.
What? Snow, falling at a moderate intensity.
When? Starting Sunday morning from south to north between 7:00-10:00 am, ending late in the afternoon. The steadiest snow is expected around midday. Overall, it’s a much faster system than the one that affected the region earlier in the week.
How much? 3-6 inches. The highest amounts are expected to the south and east, such as over Rockland and Westchester County. Lower amounts are expected to the north and west, such as across the Catskills.
Impacts? Roads will become snow-covered and slippery by mid-morning on Sunday, remaining that way through the afternoon. Shoveling and plowing will be required — cleanup efforts will span across Sunday evening and overnight. Very cold temperatures around 10 degrees on Sunday night will lead to a hard freeze of the snow, so I recommend clearing the snow as soon as it ends during the day on Sunday when temperatures will be in the 20s.
The Monday morning commute will feature remnant snowy and icy patches on roads and sidewalks, prompting some concern for school delays.
Another snow event is increasing in probability for Tuesday. While it doesn’t look all that heavy, the early indication on timing is right through the middle of the day. If that were to occur, school disruptions would have a decent chance.
The Thursday-Friday time period shows another risk for snow. It’s too early to talk details, but if you’ve got plans, you’ll want to keep a close eye on the weather.
It’s like a waterfall of winter weather. Hope you’ve got your life jacket on!
