Could it finally snow in NYC tomorrow? If we don’t see flex soon we will break a record

NEW YORK — It seems something is missing, something not quite the white and artificial we see so much before this time of year.

That’s right, it’s called snow. We almost forgot.

We’re about a week away from the start of February and we haven’t had any snow in the metro area yet.

In a winter that has seen parts of the country hit by historic snow storms, New York City has been remarkably snow-free, including other areas of the state. Striped may be too mild a word, considering we haven’t seen any measurable snow so far, and we’re already over a month into winter weather.

When will all five of our cities get measurable snow? The timing could finally arrive in the middle of the week, making New York City’s winter of 2022-23 the second with its first measurable snowfall recorded later than usual in Central Park. If we cross next Monday without snow, which is possible given the elevation above freezing, we’ll have a record.

At this point, Wednesday is looking moderately interesting, at least, for those concerned with records and the like.

A fast-moving low-pressure system brought wet accumulation inland, with the metro area likely to get its first measurable snowfall this season Wednesday evening, before dissipating Wednesday night, turning into rain Wednesday evening Will bring snowfall.

Along the coast, any snow will quickly turn to rain, keeping snow accumulations likely to a minimum. Precipitation will end on Wednesday night as a period of heavy rain, with the exception of the northern suburbs which will deal with some sleet and freezing rain.

Locally strong winds and light to moderate coastal flooding are also expected prior to the storm’s departure.

A winter weather advisory has already been issued for Orange, Passaic, Morris, Warren and Sussex counties for tomorrow with a winter storm watch for Sullivan and Sullivan counties for about 3 inches of snow possible. Ulster, where more than half a foot of snow could fall.

The city could get its first measurable snowfall, with 0.1 inch of snow in Central Park before changing to rain in the afternoon.

Due to the high moisture content of this storm, it will be heavy, wet snow that can fall as much as an inch per hour, reducing visibility, especially in northern counties where snow accumulation will be greater.

Along with the heavy snowfall, we’re also expecting 1 to 2 inches of rain along with 40 to 45 mph southeast wind gusts that could cause minor to moderate coastal flooding during Wednesday night’s high tide cycle Is. This can cause trouble on Wednesday night.

If the snow doesn’t last, well, it won’t count and therefore Central Park will have a record-breaking 2022-2023 winter season.

Regardless, the precipitation expected for Wednesday is expected to change to almost entirely rain over the metropolitan area later in the day.

The latest date to see snow accumulation in the Big Apple is January 29, a record set in 1973. So if we can get a few more days without measurable snow, we can at least take solace in the fact that we’ll tie or even break a record. At this point it’s too far to accurately predict our chances after 10 days, but we promise we’ll keep you posted.

Yes, we’ve technically seen snowflakes this season, but according to the National Weather Service, small amounts of snow mixed with rain don’t count for weather data recording purposes.

Last winter, Central Park recorded its first measurable snowfall on December 23, though it was only 0.2 inches. The first really measurable snowfall in the city is on December 7th, and well, it goes without saying that we’ve gone over a month from that date without seeing any snow.

According to the Weather Prediction Center, we could see above-normal temperatures for the rest of the month. The models themselves aren’t entirely sure about what’s in store in terms of precipitation.
