Well, tomorrow I leave for Restaurant Week in NYC! I’m meeting Hannah and Lara for the amazingly yummy 5 star food of New York. The only major downfall I’m seeing is the fact that it’s going to be in the teens in the city with the possibility of snow. Here’s the report Hannah emailed me:
AN ARCTIC COLD FRONT WILL PUSH THROUGH THE REGION THURSDAY AFTERNOON...PRECEDED AND ACCOMPANIED BY SCATTERED SNOW SHOWERS WHICH COULD LEAVE A QUICK COATING TO AN INCH OF ACCUMULATION. THE FRONT WILL ALSO USHER IN THE COLDEST AIR MASS OF THE SEASON...WITH LOW TEMPERATURES THURSDAY NIGHT RANGING FROM 10 TO 15 OVER MOST OF THE NEW YORK CITY METROPOLITAN AREA...LONG ISLAND AND COASTAL CONNECTICUT...TO 5 TO 10 ABOVE OVER INLAND SECTIONS. THE ARCTIC AIR IN COMBINATION WITH GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS OF 15 TO 25 MPH LATE THURSDAY NIGHT WILL PRODUCE WIND CHILLS OF 10 TO 15 BELOW OVER THE LOWER HUDSON VALLEY AND SOUTHERN CONNECTICUT...AND 5 TO 10 BELOW ELSEWHERE.
THE MERCURY WILL STRUGGLE TO REACH 20 DEGREES ON FRIDAY IN AND NEAR NEW YORK CITY...AND WILL LIKELY REMAIN IN THE TEENS ELSEWHERE...WITH THE GUSTY NORTHWEST FLOW KEEPING WIND CHILLS BELOW ZERO EXCEPT LATE IN THE AFTERNOON IN AND NEAR THE CITY. WHILE WINDS WILL DIMINISH BY FRIDAY NIGHT...SKIES WILL REMAIN MOSTLY CLEAR IN THE EVENING...WITH EVENING LOWS NEARLY AS COLD AS THOSE OF THURSDAY NIGHT BEFORE SLOWLY RISING LATE AT NIGHT. WIND CHILLS WILL REMAIN BELOW ZERO ACROSS MOST OF THE REGION FRIDAY NIGHT.
Some people might be excited about the possibility of snow…me, not so much! I’m a true Florida girl when it comes to weather and probably the biggest cold wussy that you’ve ever met!! Our original plan is to spend the entire day Friday in the city - I'll let you know how that turns out!
