(Tuesday December 31st 2019) Today will be a quieter day for the most part with a rain/snow shower or two possible in the morning and then as a cold front approaches towards evening there will be more numerous snow showers moving in.
It was an icy mess across the foothills of the Catskills into the Catskills and parts of the Poconos the last 24 to 36 hours, but thankfully much of today will be tranquil.
After 3 or 4 this afternoon a cold front and some upper level energy will move through quickly producing a quick shot of wet snow into early this evening.
A coating to an inch or so of snow is expected with this snow which may make some untreated side streets, parking lots and roads in the hills to become a bit slick this evening.
Highs Tuesday will be in the mid to upper 30s.
If you will be heading out for New Year’s Eve just be mindful of this, but overall it should NOT be a big deal.
It will turn windy and colder too late today into tonight as temperatures will fall into the 20s and wind chills will be in the teens and 20s.
New Year’s Day will feature scattered snow showers and flurries off Lake Erie with a coating to an inch of snow possible, especially in the hills.
It will be blustery and more seasonable with highs in the low to mid 30s and wind chills in the teens and 20s.
It turns milder and quieter for Thursday with some breaks of sun expected followed by a bit more rain and even milder air probably arriving for Friday.
