Snowy east… windy here…April 23rd, 2012 at 7:59 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
A major storm system has really strengthened east of us this morning. Heavy, wet snow is expected in spots… with the highest accumulations expected in parts of New York and Pennsylvania:
Some of the higher elevations could get even more snow… up to a foot or so. Eeek! We are starting off with some clouds in our eastern counties… on the back edge of that storm system, as you can see on the satellite/radar image below:
But the clouds will not bring us any precip… we stay dry today. What we WILL see is another cool (if not chilly) day, with highs in the 50s… AND very windy conditions as we head into the afternoon. Winds are expected to strengthen from the northwest– 15-25mph sustained with gusts 30-35 mph today. So secure any loose objects outside of your home… and hold onto your hat!
The breeze stays up there this evening, so expect a chilly Dragons game:
Overnight, we’ll drop into the low-mid 30s again… but the breeze will help to prevent frost formation. Some spots could get close to freezing by early Tuesday morning, so it’s another night to protect plants. A bit of a warming trend develops beyond tomorrow morning… upper 50s Tuesday afternoon, and back into the mid-60s Wednesday and Thursday. But the chance of rain also returns by mid-week. Right now it looks like the best shot is Wednesday night into early Thursday. We will continue to keep you posted!
