NWS now showing rain and cooling TOMORROW with a brief changeover to sleet and snow at the end with little or no accumulation for all areas (in the OKX zone that is). Interestingly, BOX forecasts for Hartford and northern CT showing only rain.......

1st Storm Done.

2nd Storm tonight: WILL NOT be a big storm BUT has some more moisture.(around .80")..Anyone over 1000' has the chance to see 3-4".

3rd storm Sunday WONT happen but moisture might come into picture... but wont be a "Storm".

From NWS Boston - They cover 3 Northern CT Counties yet they rarely mention the location.

CONSENSUS TRACK NOW TAKES THIS LOW PRESSURE EAST FROM THE NJ COAST
ALONG OR JUST SOUTH OF THE 40TH PARALLEL. THIS IS A WEAK LOW
PRESSURE. SO ALTHOUGH IT PASSES VERY CLOSE TO OUR BENCHMARK OF
40N/70W...NOT EXPECTING A BLOCKBUSTER SNOW EVENT.

TEMPERATURE PROFILES SUPPORT A MIX OF RAIN AND/OR SNOW...WITH MOST
OF THE SNOW FALLING ACROSS THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF NORTHERN MA AND
SOUTHWEST NH. THE HEAVIEST PRECIPITATION FROM THIS LOW PRESSURE
SHOULD BE FROM MIDNIGHT TO NOON FRIDAY
Here's HPC storm track. Perfect track for a snowstorm but temps not favored and not enough moisture.


Current Satellite shows the moisture starting in the Southern States.

Update: Latest models trending oh so slightly north. Guess what that means... shift that rain/snow line slightly further north again.

Wasn't a big deal storm but I thought/ still think northern CT will be seeing white stuff on the ground as little as it may be. lol

Upton saying models are slow bringing the cold air south. What a year.
I was wrong about the Watches that would go up and probably wrong about the 1-3" Northern CT now.

Please report anything here for us. Thanks.







Meanwhile a Winter Storm Warning in New Mexico right now for 6-12". Unreal. LOL

Weather Channel map shows a tiny bit of snow in the extreme northeast Quiet Corner, otherwise rain everywhere (which is what I thought given that it still shows 46 in NYC).

Now NWS while showing colder than originally predicted weather (though except for Christmas Eve pretty much at or slightly above normal), no sign of precip anywhere. Wow, looks like if it weren't for the Oct. snow we'd be challenging records for latest in the season we even get a flurry.....

Currently NYC stands at zero (0) snow for the month of December. As we mentioned, just a trace (T) of snow at Central Park is not all that uncommon in December, but zero for the month is far less common. Looking at the forecast for the last week of the month, with sunshine and semi-mild temps, we might just see another December with zero snowfall. The chances over the long term for zero snow at Central Park in December are very low but it could happen again this December, who knows? It will be interesting to see what happens in the next 7 days:
