A Foot of Snow Possible, This Weekend

The coastal storm, fed by a clash of cold air and warmer Atlantic Ocean moisture, should be plenty enough for bringing kids of all ages on sleds and saucers to the Cornell Tech slopes. Even if predictions are off by a little.

And it’ll be cold, winds up to 45 miles per hour and a high of only 28 on Saturday. Overnight lows will be in the mid-teens, all weekend.

Fresh food shoppers might want to consider whether our friends will be able to open the Farmers Market on Saturday morning. Plan ahead.

All that said, any storm can stall, speed up or swerve out to seas quickly in the this era of dramatic climate change. A foot of snow may evolve into a inch or two – or eighteen. But there’s no doubt of an onrush of winter weather. We’ll keep you post on what kind and how much as the storm draws closer.

A little added quirk – by this time next week, expect a return to snow-erasing 50 degree highs. These are not Mom’s and Dad’s winters anymore.

  • RIOC Board Meeting, May 2022: A New Exercise in Bunker Mode
    Bunker mode fits as well with New York’s Open Meetings Law as a whale on a shrimp boat. They’re antithetical. One reveals things; the other hides them.
