The first wintry event of the season is coming! Winter is definitely here...
If you would like to just see the latest forecast maps, go to the winter weather page.
There were more tornadoes last night in the south. They were rated EF 3 and EF 4 and hit just to the east of Dallas. At least 11 people have died because of these tornadoes and that number may continue to rise. Unfortunately, more tornadoes have been reported in Arkansas today and they look pretty big. We will see what damage they do tomorrow.
Back closer to home the weather is also getting interesting. Tomorrow will be much colder than today with highs in the 30s. In the city it could hit 40.
Tomorrow night around midnight some flakes start to move into the area. The flakes won't last long at all south of the green line and won't accumulate to anything. South of the teal line, the snow showers won't accumulate but there could be a glaze of ice before switching to rain between 3 and 6 AM. This includes all of New York City. South of the blue line I expect some very minor snow accumulations. However, in this area there will be accumulating ice until mid morning. North of blue line is where there will be the most snow and ice and it won'y switch to plain rain until the early afternoon.
Here are a look at the total snow and ice accumulations. The main issue will definitely be ice as much as a half an inch is possible.
I will have a much better idea of how much ice to expect tomorrow afternoon.
I had to cut this discussion short. Be sure to follow my twitter!
