    NYC: Deep Freeze to Continue Through Midweek

    By By Alex Sosnowski, senior meteorologist.

    Temperatures will hover at painful levels the New York area into Wednesday, as they have several times this winter.

    The combination of gusty winds, dry air and low temperatures will result in AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures below zero at times.

    Flights originating from or heading to parts of the South could be delayed or cancelled in the coming days.


    While a storm will blast the Southern states with heavy snow and ice, that storm is forecast to slip out to the east of New York City at midweek.

    Moisture from the storm will fight with dry air over the Northeast. The latest indications are that a dusting to an inch of snow will fall on parts of the city, mainly south and east of Manhattan but a couple of inches of snow can accumulate on eastern Long Island and along the central New Jersey coast.

    The weather pattern that has delivered over a dozen Alberta Clipper storms and frequent snow events during much of January is coming to an end.

    The new weather pattern will shut off the flow of totally arctic air and will allow more of a blend of air from the Arctic and the Pacific Ocean.

    Temperatures are forecast to rebound to seasonable levels by this weekend. The normal high and low temperatures for New York City on Feb. 1-2 are 39 and 27 respectively.

    However, the new pattern will allow some storms to swing up from the Gulf of Mexico. While these storms will be warmer, they can bring substantial precipitation.
