Polar Vortex Will Make For A Chilly Weekend In NYC

Polar Vortex Will Make For A Chilly Weekend In NYC”

The big picture "A lobe of the tropospheric polar vortex will pinch off from its main circulation closer to the Arctic, sagging southeast across the eastern Great Lakes and New England, translating to numbingly cold surface temperatures for May", the Post writes.

Snow fell in parts of northern New York state and MA, with accumulations of up to 10 inches in some places, while scattered flurries touched down in Boston and New York City.

Albany could see around an inch of snowfall Friday. "This is a rare May snow event", he said.

Upstate New York could see an inch of snow, while New York City and the Hudson River valley are likely to see mostly rain, according to Hunter Tubbs at the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine.

The high temperature Saturday is expected to top out in the upper 40s or low 50s.

In many areas, the snowfall was one for the record books, even if it didn't stick around. MA hadn't seen measurable snow in May since 2002, while in Manhattan's Central Park, the flakes tied a record set in 1977 for latest snow of the season. Gov. Phil Scott tweeted sympathy to Vermonters frustrated by the weather following weeks of being inside.

New York City will get rain instead of snow.

He said records show snowfall in May in ME and New Hampshire just a few times. Just like better weather is ahead, better days will come, as well. "We will get through this, together".

A polar vortex has brought cold weather and springtime snow to parts of the northeast United States and Canada.

"We continue to closely watch a storm for Friday afternoon into Friday night that may bring a period of now to most of eastern NY and western New England", the U.S. National Weather Service reported Thursday.

Cannon said the snow will give way to strong winds upward of 40 and 50 miles per hour (64-80 kph) in much of the Northeast for the remainder of Saturday, along with unusually cold conditions.

Officials put freeze warnings into effect in much of New England, and down the coast all the way into North Carolina.

"Temperatures will go back to seasonal averages", he said, which for southwestern Ontario would mean 18 C for the daytime high and nothing less than 7 C overnight.
