NYC Weather Update: Snow Forecast for Friday, Followed by Bitter Cold Weekend

Winter is hitting New York City pretty hard with more snow and freezing temperatures on the way.

After a long time without any snow, we got over an inch of snow and really cold weather from Monday to Wednesday.

Here’s what’s coming up for the rest of the week.

When to Expect Snow?

  • Wednesday night: It’s going to get really cold, with temperatures dropping to the low 20s and high teens.
  • Thursday: Cloudy skies and maybe a bit of snow north of the city. Temperatures will be around freezing.
  • Early Friday morning: A winter weather advisory for parts of New Jersey starts at midnight. Expect light snow to start falling, possibly as early as 4 a.m. or after 7 a.m.

Winter is giving NYC it’s very best – or very worst – as the weather forecast shows another round of measurable snow coming Friday followed by bitter-cold:

How Much Snow to Expect?

By late Friday, New York City could see 1 to 3 inches of snow, maybe even 4-5 inches in the worst case. The South Shore of Long Island and coastal New Jersey might get a bit more.

If the storm moves farther from the coast, we might get less snow. But if it comes closer, we could see up to 5 inches in NYC, Long Island, and other nearby areas.

Weekend Weather:

  • Temperatures will remain below freezing during the weekend, with the wind chill making it feel significantly worse.
  • Saturday and Sunday morning temperatures will be in the teens, but feel like single digits due to the wind.
  • Afternoon temperatures will only reach the mid 20s and low 30s.

Looking Ahead:

Relief is coming next week, with temperatures finally going above freezing on Monday and even reaching the 40s on Tuesday.

Record Snowless Streak Ends:

New York City has gone almost two years without significant snow, but that streak finally ended.

Central Park got 1.6 inches of snow from a winter storm on Monday and Tuesday, breaking the record snowless streak of over 700 days.

So, get ready for some snow and cold, and be prepared for possible travel impacts on Friday evening. Stay warm, New York!
