Biting cold, winter storm on the way for the holiday weekend – CBS New York


NEW YORK (CBS New York) – We are in for a weekend of significant weather changes and challenges, culminating in a storm that will impact our region early Monday morning, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Here’s what to expect and when:

FRIDAY NIGHT: Temperatures will drop into the teens and single digits across the region with winds still blowing 30-40 mph. Wind chills in and around the city will range from 0 to -10 and N&W they will range from -10 to -25. That said, the National Weather Service has issued Wind Chill Advisories and Wind Chill Warnings for our northwest suburbs that will go into effect starting late tonight.

SATURDAY MORNING: Very cold air will be in place with a lingering breeze. That said, the high temperatures will only be in the teens and low 20s, but due to the wind, it will only feel like the single digits and maybe the teens in the hottest places.

SATURDAY NIGHT: It will be another freezing night, but luckily the winds will ease. Expect widespread lows in the teens and single digits with possibly sub-zero air temperatures and N&W wind chills.

SUNDAY MORNING: It will remain very cold, but the temperatures will indeed reach the freezing point at the end of the day. And with the wind still a little absent, it feels like the afternoon of teenagers and the 20s.

SUNDAY NIGHT: Snow and rain will cover the area. The probability at this point is that there will be some good N&W snow left; snow will mix with rain in our more immediate northwest suburbs; a brief spell of snow is expected in the city before changing to rain; and it should be primarily a rainy event for our southeastern suburbs. This storm will also have the potential to produce wind gusts in excess of 50 mph. That said, we could see tree branches and even entire trees with blackouts.

MONDAY MORNING: The remaining precipitation rises. Several inches of snow are expected in our northwestern suburbs with potentially heavy snowfall (6+”) for our more remote northwestern suburbs. Coastal flooding is likely at this point, so we’ll need to keep an eye out for high tide cycles that day.
