The forecast challenge is how fast the warm air will come up the east coast and change the snow to rain. If the cold air holds on at the surface, some of the rain will freeze on already-frigid surfaces. From the Saturday morning NYC NWS office forecast discussion: http://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=OKX&issuedby=OKX&product=AFD&format=CI&version=1&glossary=1&highlight=off The NWS was expecting the highest… More Saturday Feb 21 – Saturday evening/Sunday morning snow/freezing rain event
Friday evening….. Freezing cold! Hands hurt so much I only lasted 35 minutes outside, and it’s hard to work a camera in gloves at 13 degrees and a wind, but not using the gloves was out of the question. But the very thin moon was close to brilliant Venus and much dimmer Mars. And when… More Wonderful gathering of Venus and Mars, with the Moon passing by
Not until at least after next Wednesday. From the National Weather Service, NYC office’s forecast discussion http://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?site=OKX&issuedby=OKX&product=AFD&format=CI&version=1&glossary=1&highlight=off THE BIGGEST ISSUE TO DEAL WITH OVER THIS TIME-FRAME WILL BE THE VERY COLD TEMPERATURES…WITH TEMPERATURES EXPECTED TO RANGE FROM 15 TO 25 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL FROM FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY. DURING THIS TIME…EVEN THE WARMER AREAS IN AND… More When will the Northeast see temperatures above freezing again?

There is less water in this storm for NYC and south, a snow equivalent of 5 to 8 inches and some of that will be… More Our latest Monday snowstorm
Thursday’s morning rush hour will be a bit slick as an inch or so of snow settles over the NYC metro area. Perhaps eastern Long Island will get more as a new storm develops well off shore. Inland, the highest amounts, such as they are, may be over the Hudson Valley, but the NWS is… More Snow Thursday morning, then freeze and repeat

Any optical aid is useful to explore the planet more massive than all the other planets put together. Binoculars will show up to four tiny dots, Jupiter’s four brightest moons, very near… More Watch Jupiter, King of the Planets
And ‘worse’ might mean less snow. But if you look at the map of snow totals, the NWS appears to be forecasting less snow than they did earlier today for coastal areas. This is because the computer models used for forecasting have been more recently predicting the storm to track further north, allowing more warm… More Are they forecasting a lot of snow for you? It could be worse!
