Weather Summary for the Local Tri-State Region
National Weather Service New York NY
420 AM EST Wed Nov 21 2018

A strong cold front approaches from the northwest this morning, then
crosses the Tri-State this afternoon and early this evening. Highs
today ahead of the front should be around 5 to 10 degrees below
normal, mainly from around 40 to the mid 40s. There is a chance for
isolated snow or rain showers right ahead of the front, with little
or no accumulation currently expected.

The winds will increase out of the northwest behind the front this
evening, with guts of 30 to 40 mph. This will usher in the coldest
air mass of the season, as Canadian high pressure builds towards the
region. Lows tonight should be around 15 to 20 degrees across New
York City, northeast New Jersey and Long Island and the lower to mid
teens elsewhere. Wind chills late tonight should be around 0 across
the Lower Hudson Valley and southern Connecticut and the lower to
mid single digits above zero elsewhere.

It will continue to be blustery and cold on Thanksgiving day, with
highs mainly from around 20 to the middle 20s and wind chills by
afternoon only around 10 to 15 degrees. Friday will feature much
less wind as the high builds over the area, it will also be not as
cold, with highs generally from around 30 to the mid 30s.
