It’s brrrrrutal out there. Despite the sunshine, the Big Apple turned into the Big Freeze on Monday as bone-chilling temperatures — the coldest for this date in three years — enveloped the city. Until recently, temperatures on January 21 in the city hovered around the mid-20s to 40s. That’s a far cry from Monday morning’s single digits that weren’t expected to climb over 13 degrees, according to AccuWeather. Brutal 15- to 30-mph winds made the already glacial temps feel closer to minus 20 degrees. Tuesday also will be cold — but not as bitter — as the mercury spikes to at least 25 degrees. Temperatures will keep climbing Wednesday, reaching a high of 50 degrees by Thursday — with lots of rain. … [Read more...] about New York City is a freezing nightmare

The first 11 days of October (remember?) featured three 80-plus degree days. The rest of the month has been wet and chilly, with below average temperatures on all but three days. The chilly temperatures weren’t extraordinary or record-tying, like those three very warm days. But the warmth in Alaska’s largest metro area, Anchorage, was extraordinary. Anchorage had its latest freeze on record, on Oct. 28. That’s later than Dulles International Airport had their first freeze a few days earlier. The dominant upper air pattern is depicted in this Weather Underground graphic. The massive upper level ridge of high pressure has been a block in the west to east flow over the northern latitudes. Under that ridge, the air has been relatively warm and dry. Notice how the polar jet stream is forced to go up, over and around that blocking high, where it delivered arctic air to the dipping trough in the jet stream to the southeast of the ridge. As we get later into the cold … [Read more...] about Don Paul: Does a warm Alaska mean a cold Western New York?
Halloween weekend will bring more than just ghosts and goblins — a nor’easter is creeping across the US and is expected to drench the Northeast with wet snow, rain and other scary conditions. New Yorkers can expect wind and rain starting Friday night, ending around Sunday morning, with some snow expected in New England and across Appalachia, according to Accuweather predictions. The spooky holiday may not be until next Wednesday, but plenty of early celebrations will be soaking wet. The five boroughs will likely see between 1 and 2 inches of rain while the eastern end of Long Island and the New Jersey coast should prepare for “gale-force winds” over 40 mph and some flooding, said Accuweather senior meteorologist Tom Kines. Temperatures are forecast to be in the 50s during the day all weekend, with nighttime lows dropping to the 40s. The storm is churning in the warm waters of the Gulf Coast, partially fueled by monster storm Hurricane Willa, and is expected to … [Read more...] about Nor’easter could haunt New York City for Halloween
