T-Storms, Rain, Snow and 50 MPH Winds in CNY
The National Weather Service (NWS) is calling for unsettled conditions in CNY with showers turning into a steady rain.
NWS is warning of a strong cold front moving into CNY will bring wind gusts of 50 mph, showers, and isolated thunderstorms. Frigid air will quickly move in, bringing lake effect snow showers throughout the night.
A warm front will cross the region this morning, followed by a strong cold front right on its heels. Showers, and perhaps some rumbles of thunder can be expected along the front...little clearing is expected ahead of the front to allow for destabilization. Wind profiles are impressive, with over 60 knots of 0-6 km bulk shear, so it is possible that some low-topped convection could bring some strong gusts down to the surface... [NWS]
High pressure will be over CNY on Wednesday with gusty through the first half of the day. Temperatures will be cool and below normal, with highs in the upper 30s.
