For the past few months, NYC has experienced slight flurries here and there, but little to no snow accumulation all winter long. We didn’t even have a White Christmas!
Today, New Yorkers awoke to yet another snowless morning. However, forecasts predict possible snowfall in the NYC area around midweek. According to the National Weather Service, the city could see up to two inches of snow accumulation on Wednesday, January 25th.
Yet, if measurable snow doesn’t fall this week, it’s likely we will break the record for the latest 1st measurable snow for the season since 1973, tweeted the National Weather Service for New York.
Beyond Wednesday, forecasts show dry weather for the rest of the week with temperatures jumping around the 40s, potentially even reaching a high of 51 degrees on Thursday.
Though, fear not if we have no snowfall this week because Central Park’s epic Winter Jam will return next month, making available tons of snow-filled festivities such as skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing. That’s right, a snowfield is blown by Gore Mountain at Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield to make way for winter fun regardless of this mild weather we’re having.
