Weather Summary for the Local Tri-State Region
National Weather Service New York NY
442 PM EDT Mon Mar 19 2018
Below normal temperatures will continue through mid week as Arctic
high pressure continues to provide a supply of cold air to the
region. After another cold night with temperatures ranging from
the upper teens in outlying areas to around 30 in New York City,
clouds will begin to increase toward daybreak ahead of a complex
area of low pressure approaching from the south.
The majority of the day on Tuesday will remain dry before
precipitation begins to overspread the area from the south Tuesday
afternoon. With highs in the mid 30s to around 40, this initial
batch of precipitation is expected to fall as a mix of rain,
sleet, and snow through the evening and into the overnight hours.
Precipitation will gradually transition towards primarily snow and
sleet across the majority of the region by early Wednesday
morning, and becoming all snow Wednesday afternoon. The primary
exception to this is across the south shore of Long Island where a
mix of rain, sleet, and snow may linger through the majority of
the day on Wednesday. Precipitation then tapers off Wednesday
night with lows falling into the mid 20s to around 30.
