Heads UP! When will it end….?

When will it end? – NYC metro area  

Snowfall ends by mid to late morning.

Strong winds end during Friday night.

Extreme cold ends mid-day Saturday.

Don’t drive today.

Don’t go out unless you are ready for the extreme cold and wind.

The extreme cold on Friday and Saturday morning will make de-icers less effective.

Because of the cold, walking in the snow will be slippery, like walking in talcum powder.

From the NWS – their thoughts on the end of the storm and what comes next
.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/…
— Changed Discussion —
990 HPA LOW WAS LOCATED ABOUT 190 MILES SE OF KMTP AT 11Z. LOW
LEVEL FRONTOGENETIC FORCING TO THE NW OF THE LOW PRODUCING SNOW
BANDS ACROSS CENTRAL AND EASTERN CT AND LONG ISLAND…WITH LIGHTER
SNOW TO THE WEST. SNOW WILL TAPER OFF FROM W TO E THIS MORNING BY
AROUND 7 AM OVER FAR WESTERN ZONES 8-9AM AT NYC AND BY 10-11AM OVER
FAR EASTERN ZONES.

STILL ON TRACK FOR 8-12 INCHES ACROSS LONG ISLAND AND 6 TO 10
INCHES ELSEWHERE WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS.

THERE IS STILL SOME INDICATION THAT COULD HAVE A LINGERING
DEFORMATION BAND OVER EASTERN LONG ISLAND INTO EARLY AFTERNOON –
BUT FOR NOW DO NOT THINK WILL ADD MUCH TO ACCUMULATION. WILL NEED
TO MONITOR THIS FEATURE THOUGH – AS SOMETIMES THEY ARE GOOD FOR AN
EXTRA INCH OR TWO OF SNOWFALL.

EVEN AS SNOW SHUTS DOWN – STRONG N-NE WINDS GUSTING TO 30-45 MPH
WILL CAUSING BLOWING OF THE DRY POWDERY SNOW AND VERY LOW WIND CHILLS
– WITH VALUES 15 TO AROUND 20 BELOW ZERO ACROSS NORTHERN INTERIOR
ZONES AND 5 TO AROUND 10 BELOW ELSEWHERE INTO THE EARLY AFTERNOON
HOURS. AS A RESULT HAVE LEFT THE WINTER WEATHER HEADLINES AS IS.

WINDS DIMINISH THIS AFTERNOON – WITH WIND CHILLS INCREASING TO FROM
-10 TO AROUND 0.
