We don’t know about you, but we’re seriously ready for spring. Unfortunately, it looks like there’s at least one more winter storm standing in our way of sandals and sunshine. On March 1st, a nasty nor’easter hit New York City. Winter Storm Riley brought strong winds, heavy rain, snow, and coastal flooding to many parts of the East Coast. It even turned into a bomb cyclone, meaning there was a drop in atmospheric pressure of at least 24 millibars over 24 hours or less. Now, just as the winds have died down, NYC needs to prepare for the next nor’easter: Winter Storm Quinn.
How will Winter Storm Quinn affect NYC? We have good news and bad news. Here’s the good news: Winter Storm Quinn isn’t expected to be as windy as last week’s Winter Storm Riley was. But here’s the bad news: It’s probably going to bring more snow. Maybe that’s good news if you like winter!
Last week, the Big Apple barely saw any snow; it was more like a slushy wintery mix that didn’t stick or accumulate. But according to the Weather Channel, meteorologists are predicting that Winter Storm Quinn will bring rain to NYC on the evening of Tuesday, March 6th. Overnight, that rain will turn into snow, which will continue all day Wednesday.
All in all, NYC is expected to get around six inches of snow.
Expect temperatures in the low 30s.
Why, Quinn, why?!
