Discussion

First the good news...pitchers and catchers report in Florida this week and there are signs for warmer weather during the next couple of weeks. Now the bad news...in the winter that seemingly never ends, there is a major east coast storm headed our way for tomorrow night and Thursday and it should bring substantial snow to the region with some icing possible as well; especially, near the coastline.

Today will feature very cold conditions for this time of year and bitter cold tonight will drop temperatures to the teens throughout the region. Clouds increase on Wednesday and snow is likely to develop after midnight and continue through the day on Thursday with the chance for some mixing of sleet and/or freezing rain; especially, near the coastline. Preliminary snowfall estimates for the NYC metro region are 8-14 inches with the higher amounts in that range in the northern and western suburbs where primarily snow can fall and the lesser amounts to the south and east where more of a mixing will likely occur. It looks like there will be numerous school closings on Thursday and that could be the case on Friday as well as the dig out begins.
