Your weekly forecast by Zachary JacomowitzHello, Rockland County! I hope that you have had a great week and a great New Year’s. We have been dealing with bitter cold and snow, but is there a warm-up in sight? Let’s take a look, but first my prediction on the snow event.
As of Wednesday evening, I am predicting 2-4″ of snow for Rockland County. There is uncertainty in the forecast and we could see higher or even lower amounts, but 2-4″ is my best bet. Winds will create blowing and possibly drifting snow, which will significantly reduce visibility. Travel will be difficult and is not advised.
Friday: Mix of clouds and sun and very cold. High near 11° after a low of 1°. Chance of snow is 0%,Saturday: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy. Very cold, with a high near 10° after a low near -1°. Chance of snow is 0%.Sunday: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy and very cold. High near 13° after a morning low near -2°. Chance of snow is 0%.Monday: Cloudy with some snow showers around. Somewhat milder. High near 29° after a morning low near 10°. Chance of snow is 40%.Tuesday: Mostly cloudy with a chance for a rain shower, yes a rain shower. High near 40° after a morning low near 25°. Chance of rain is 30%.Wednesday: Partly cloudy and cold. High near 25° after a morning low near 17°. Chance of snow is 10%.Thursday: Partly cloudy and cold. High near 23° after a morning low near 10°. Chance of snow is 10%.SUMMARY:Bitter cold will stick around right through the weekend before we see a moderation in temperatures early next week. Arctic air looks to return by the middle to latter half of next week. A storm system looks possible for Monday, and it could some snow showers, but there is uncertainty. Stay warm and safe!
