WEATHER THIS WEEK: February 2 – 8

Your weekly forecast by Zachary Jacomowitz 
Hello, Rockland County! I hope that you have had a great week! Now that we are into February, we really need to make sure we pay attention to winter storm threats. Some of our most notorious winter storms have occurred this time of year, so let’s get right to the forecast!
Friday: Morning rain/snow showers, followed by mostly cloudy to clearing skies. The high will be reached during the morning, near 33° before dropping into the 20s by the afternoon. Blustery. Chance of precipitation is 70%.
Saturday: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy and cold. High near 26° after a morning low near 10°. Chance of snow is 0%.
**Sunday: The possibility for a snow event exists but details are very fuzzy right now. Models disagree on the scenario. Expect the threat for accumulating snow. High near 32°. Chance of precipitation is 50%.
**Monday: Same situation as Sunday, but any storm would be coming to an end as either rain or snow. Be prepared just in case. High near 34°. Chance of precipitation is 50%.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy with a few flurries possible. High near 32° after a morning low near 19°. Chance of snow is 30%.
Wednesday: Another storm threat. Could be rain or snow, but again, too early to tell. High near 37° after a low near 30°. Chance of precipitation is 40%.
Thursday: Overcast with the chance for snow showers. High near 31° after a morning low near 23°. Chance of snow is 30%.
NOTE:
I apologize for the lack of clarity. It’s very difficult to pin point a forecast beyond a couple of days with respect to coastal storms. I just want you to be aware of the uncertainty and plan ahead. Thank you.
