how much will it snow Winter storm forecast says… – NBC New York

It feels like we’re missing something – something white and non-artificial that we usually see well before this time of year.

That’s right, it’s called snow. We almost forgot.

In a winter when historic snowstorms ravaged parts of the country, including other areas of the Empire State, New York City was noticeably bereft of the white stuff. Deprived is perhaps too light a term considering we haven’t seen any measurable snow at all – and we’re already well over a month into the season.

when are we coming measurable Snow in the five districts? It’s possible that moment will finally come midweek, which would make the winter of 2022-23 in New York City the second-youngest on record for the first measurable snowfall in Central Park. If we make it to next Monday, which is also possible given these sub-zero temperatures, we will have a record.

At this point, Wednesday is looking marginally interesting, at least for those worried about records and the like.

Much of the New York City area could see a few hours of snowfall overnight through Wednesday and into early morning, potentially adding up to several inches. That could also include measurable snowfall in Central Park, although much will depend on the timing of the snow, or potential snow, as we’ve come to call it.

If it doesn’t stick, it doesn’t count. If that’s the case, we could potentially be looking at an inch in Central Park, which would be enough to ruin the potential for a record-breaking 2022-2023 winter season (albeit for the wrong reasons).

Regardless, Wednesday’s expected rainfall is expected to turn almost entirely to rain throughout the metro area later in the day. Sometimes it can rain heavily, so stay tuned to Storm Team 4 for the latest updates. And here are the National Weather Service’s latest severe weather warnings for your neighborhood.

Record-Breaking NYC Winter?

The last date New York City has ever recorded a gathering is January 29.

We are looking forward to a record winter.


First snow averages in Central Park


The latest date ever is January 29, a record set in 1973. So if we can make it another 19 days without measurable snow, we can at least take comfort in the knowledge that we’ll be tying or even breaking a record. It’s still a stretch to accurately predict our odds beyond the 10 days, but we promise we’ll keep you posted.

Yes, we technically saw snowflakes this season, but traces of snow mixed with rain do not count for weather data collection. (It’s not us, it’s the National Weather Service.)

Last winter, Central Park recorded its first measurable snowfall on December 23, although it was only 0.2 inches (so you see, “trace” amounts really are nothing at all). The average first measurable snowfall in the city is December 7th, so we’re already a month behind the average.

Looking ahead, it’s not yet clear when this winter’s first big — or even significant — snowfall will hit NYC.

According to the Climate Prediction Center, it’s possible we’ll see above average temperatures for the rest of the month. The same models aren’t entirely definitive about what’s in store in terms of precipitation.
