<![CDATA[StormTracker 4: The Most Powerful Radar in the Tri-State]]>Thu, 09 Feb 2017 07:47:38 -0400http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/StormTracker+4.jpg

StormTracker 4, a radar so powerful it will see the storms behind the storms.

The state-of-the-art high-frequency S-band radar is online now, and its debut will bring NBC 4 viewers the best radar data available to the public. NBC 4 New York and Telemundo 47 are the first Northeast television stations licensed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to operate in the high-frequency S-Band.

As a result, NBC 4 New York and Telemundo 47 viewers can access the most accurate and powerful broadcast weather technology anywhere in the Tri-State area.

StormTracker 4 is the:

Most Accurate: A dual-pol radar (meaning it scans both vertically and horizontally), StormTracker 4 can see storms down to the size of a drop of rain or snow flake. And because of its location, StormTracker 4 will have the best view of the sky conditions close to the ground in the New York tri-state area, where severe and winter weather happen.

Most Powerful: StormTracker 4 is a high-frequency S-band radar, of a type previously reserved for the military and the government. It is the only one of its kind in the tri-state area, which gives NBC 4 greater resolution and clarity than other radar products in the region.

Most Precise: There's no lag with StormTracker 4, no waiting for government data – StormTracker 4’s data is received by Storm Team 4 instantaneously, allowing us to warn you first during rapidly changing weather conditions.

Most Technological: StormTracker 4 is exclusive to NBC 4 New York, and will be complemented by our mobile radar StormRanger 4, our chase truck StormChaser 4 and one of the largest teams of meteorologists and weather experts in the region.

NBC 4 New York’s exclusive StormRanger 4 mobile radar truck is a one-of-a-kind vehicle that has a live, high-powered Doppler radar enabling it to get out ahead of a storm. StormRanger 4 can track storms wherever they are with a higher degree of accuracy and more detail than ever before.

From increased visibility in the heart of a storm to the ability to alert people in real time that a tornado has touched down, StormRanger 4 is the latest addition to NBC 4 New York’s expanding weather arsenal designed to keep you and your family safe when severe weather strikes.

"This radar technology and mobile configuration is a first for any TV station or network of stations in the U.S.," said Richard Stedronsky, a meteorologist and director of strategic business development and partnerships at Enterprise Electronics Corp. "NBC-Telemundo is the first to deploy this fleet of mobile doppler radars in the nation."

So what makes StormRanger 4 so unique in delivering you the most accurate forecast?

When severe weather approaches, NBC 4 New York now has the ability to dispatch StormRanger 4 to wherever the storm is going to strike. Using X-band, dual-polarization Doppler radar, StormRanger 4 can provide our meteorologists with more detailed observations than any normal fixed radar can provide, giving them — and you — a hyperlocal look at the storm.

See StormRanger radar in action here »

"When you start to get over 100 miles away from the radar, the radar beam from a fixed radar is too high in the atmosphere to see lower weather phenomena,” said Stedronsky, whose company provides the new radar system in StormRanger 4. "But that’s where severe weather takes place -- in the lowest parts of the atmosphere. With StormRanger, you can take your viewers to the weather and gather information that a traditional fixed radar could be missing.”

StormRanger 4's radar, which has a maximum range of about 100 miles, will update about once every 60 seconds. These updates mean you'll be up-to-the-minute when tracking how and when the weather will impact you in your crucial locations. Our app users will receive push alerts when StormRanger 4 is activated, allowing them to get a closer -- and more accurate -- look at the weather in their neighborhoods.

By driving StormRanger 4 close to actual storms, NBC 4 New York will be able to give the kind of detailed look that TV stations never have been able to do before. Fixed radars may miss certain weather events due to terrain or blockages due to buildings in a downtown area. But StormRanger 4 can fill in those gaps in coverage, and in turn provide a more complete picture of what is happening now and what those immediately in the crosshairs of a severe storm can expect.

Mobility is StormRanger 4’s big advantage over fixed radar during severe thunderstorms. By positioning StormRanger 4 wherever severe storms are about to strike, meteorologists will get a better idea of how the storms are forming, how severe they are and where and how fast they’re moving.

"This advanced look that you’ll get from a StormRanger means you’re giving more accurate and timely information to a viewer,” Stedronsky said.

In addition to radar, StormRanger 4 has two cameras to give you an up-close look at conditions - one on the dashboard, and one pointed at a reporter riding in the vehicle.

"We are boosting our weather forecasting capabilities by building, from scratch, the first-of-its-kind fleet of mobile weather radars in the country because we know how important weather is to our viewers," said Valari Staab, President, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations. "All of our stations will have access to this groundbreaking weather technology so they can deliver even more lifesaving weather information to their communities."

See how you can view StormRanger 4 online »

Stedronsky says the key to it all is having full control of a mobile radar unit that can be sent to any storm, at any time.

“That’s going to be huge for protecting people and assets and saving lives,” Stedronsky said.

NBC 4 New York is committed to bringing you the most accurate weather information possible, and StormRanger 4 is just the latest investment we’re making into weather-related technologies to do just that. StormRanger 4 is here to serve your community, and ensure that Storm Team 4 is your most-trusted source when severe storms strike.

<![CDATA[Raptors Top Knicks 110-97, Assured of Top-3 Seed in the East]]>Sun, 09 Apr 2017 14:45:36 -0400http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/KnicksRaptors_DeRozan.jpg

DeMar DeRozan scored 35 points and the Toronto Raptors wrapped up at least the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference with a 110-97 victory over the New York Knicks on Sunday.

The Raptors pulled away in the fourth quarter to reach 50 victories for the second straight season. They can still finish second if they beat Cleveland in their regular-season finale and Boston loses its final two.

Kyle Lowry had 17 points and 11 assists for the Raptors, who swept the Knicks for the first time since 2009-10.

Rookie Willy Hernangomez tied his career high with 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for the Knicks, who despite playing without most of their top players trailed only 76-75 after three. But Toronto broke it open behind the 3-point line and won its third straight.

The three victories have come since Lowry returned after right wrist surgery that sidelined him for 18 games.

Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis sat out again for the Knicks, who had already lost Derrick Rose to knee surgery and Joakim Noah to an NBA suspension.

TIP-INS

Raptors: Toronto finished 14-2 against the Atlantic Division for the second straight season. The Raptors are 61-14 against their divisional foes over the last four seasons.

Knicks: Coach Jeff Hornacek seemed to think Porzingis (sore lower back) would play Wednesday in the season finale and wasn't sure about Anthony (sore left knee). ... Courtney Lee, the only player from the Knicks' expected starting five still playing, scored 14 points.

DEMAR 2K

DeRozan shot 11 for 15 from the field and became the second player in franchise history with a 2,000-point season and now has 2,020. Vince Carter scored 2,107 in 1999-00 and 2,070 in 2000-01.

GOOD GUARDS

Markelle Fultz from the University of Washington, expected to be one of the top picks in the draft, was at the game. So was Stephon Marbury, the New York native who played for the Knicks during a turbulent stretch from 2003-08 and has gone on to a successful career in China.

UP NEXT

Raptors: Visit Cleveland on Wednesday. The Cavaliers have won all three meetings after beating the Raptors in six games in last year's conference finals.

Knicks: Host Philadelphia on Wednesday in their season finale.

<![CDATA[Showers, Wind Linger Following Furious Storms ]]>Fri, 07 Apr 2017 05:19:40 -0400http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/Capture177.JPG

Although Thursday’s storm system pulled away, gusty winds out of the northwest will still linger around Friday making it feel like it’s in the 30s & 40s all day.

The sun will be out to start, but the clouds fill in again quickly, and a few passing showers are likely in the afternoon through the early evening. It will be completely dry by Friday night. 

The powerful storm system blasted the tri-state with gusty thunderstorms and torrential downpours Thursday, but most areas avoided significant flooding. 

The rain and storms have moved out of the tri-state, but not before leaving behind some significant damage.

Witnesses and the Smithtown Fire Department on Long Island said a bolt of lightning struck the front of a house on Oxhead Road at around 5:30 p.m. 

The fire department said it caused a small fire on the roof, which firefighters contained to the top floor. Nobody was injured and the blaze was under control sometime after 6 p.m, fire officials said.

Most flood watches have expired, but some remain in effect for several counties. See the latest severe weather alerts by county here.

The weekend looks to be much better. Saturday will be a bit milder, less gusty, and featuring more sun. Sunday is the pick of the weekend, however, with tons of sunshine and high temperatures rebounding into the 60s.

The weather gets even milder next week, with high temperatures surging into the 70s on Monday and Tuesday.

It will get a bit cooler Wednesday with the arrival of a cold front, and this front will also bring a few showers to the region, but most of next week looks dry and pleasant.

<![CDATA[Soaker Snarling Commute, Bringing Gusty Wind, Flooding ]]>Tue, 04 Apr 2017 05:23:55 -0400http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/WNBC+TINY+CLEAN+AIRCHECK+0430-0500+-+04322426_WNBC_000000015712.jpg

Get those umbrellas and rain boots out, a soaker that could dump 1 to 2 inches of rain before it's over is barreling down on New York and beyond, Storm Team 4 says.

Heavy rain moved in late Monday and into the first part of Tuesday morning, already snarling the commute and flooding the streets for many.

The morning commute, which is already causing headaches for many following the second train derailment in 11 days at Penn Station, is only getting worse due to the weather.

Flooding has closed the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway westbound from Astoria Boulevard to exit 40. On the Henry Hudson Parkway where more flooding is reported on the northbound side at 158th Street is also blocking two lanes. Flooding on the FDR Drive southbound at 96th Street has the right lane blocked. 

On the Major Deegan Expressway, more flooding and vehicle stuck in the water has the roadway closed northbound between exit 12 and 13. 

In Jersey City, heavy flooding is reported on Wayne Street where the water is about ankle deep. Jersey City police have closed some streets amid the significant flooding in the area.

Steady heavy rain picked up sometime after midnight through the first part of the morning commute Tuesday. The wind will become gusty at times, possibly over 30 miles per hour, before another round of strong showers with the potential for thunderstorms later in the day, according to Storm Team 4.

The heavy rain will diminish around mid-morning, leaving hit or miss showers through the afternoon, Storm Team 4 said. Local street and highway flooding will also be possible. A flood watch has been issued for all of Tuesday for New Jersey and Hudson Valley and Catskills.  

The second batch of heavier showers and storms will be possible from 3 to 9 p.m., but only affecting the evening commute in some areas.

Wednesday brings relief with an abundance of sunshine and mild temperatures in the 60s before another soaker rolls in Thursday, Storm Team 4 says.

<![CDATA[Storm Clears for More Pleasant Weekend Weather]]>Sat, 01 Apr 2017 09:33:15 -0400http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/180*120/nasty+weather.gif

The storm that soaked the tri-state with a windy, cold mess was clearing out Saturday to make way for a more pleasant weekend, Storm Team 4 said. 

The drizzle and clouds were clearing, starting in the west and moving east. But Saturday is expected to stay relatively cold, with highs in the lower to middle 40s, Storm Team 4 said. 

Sunday is forecast to be mostly sunny with highs in the mid- to upper-50s. 

Some areas remain under weather advisories from Friday's storm. Eastern Dutchess County was under a winter weather advisory until 5 p.m. Saturday. Check the latest severe weather alerts for your area here.


Track the system with Storm Tracker 4, the tri-state's most powerful radar.

Cold rain that started Friday morning and continued throughout the day had mostly tapered off by 11 p.m., but whipping winds were expected into Saturday morning, making it feel more like the 20s than the 40s in the city overnight. 

More than 2 inches of rain fell in parts of every borough of the city by late Friday, with Castle Hill in the Bronx and Howard Beach in Queens seeing nearly 3 inches of rain. More than 3 inches of rain was reported in Belmar on the Jersey Shore. Most other parts of the tri-state saw between an inch and 2 inches. 

Rain and wind caused flight delays at area airports during the day and into the evening. At one point, LaGuardia, Newark and JFK were all experiencing inbound flight delays of more than 2 hours. At JFK, inbound delays were more than 5 hours.

<![CDATA[Nasty, Wind-Driven Soaker Pounds Tri-State]]>Sat, 01 Apr 2017 01:46:51 -0400http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/180*120/nasty+weather.gif

An end-of-the-month storm has brought a nasty round of cold temperatures, rain and wind to start the weekend, Storm Team 4 says. 

The National Weather Service in Binghamton and Albany issued winter weather and flood advisories in effect through Saturday morning, with the possibility of light accumulations of ice. Check the latest severe weather alerts for your area here.

Track the system with Storm Tracker 4, the tri-state's most powerful radar.

Cold rain that started Friday morning and continued throughout the day had mostly tapered off by 11 p.m., but whipping winds were expected into Saturday morning, making it feel more like the 20s than the 40s in the city overnight. 

More than 2 inches of rain fell in parts of every borough of the city by late Friday, with Castle Hill in the Bronx and Howard Beach in Queens seeing nearly 3 inches of rain. More than 3 inches of rain was reported in Belmar on the Jersey Shore. Most other parts of the tri-state saw between an inch and 2 inches. 

Flooding continued to be a threat along the coast, as well as by streams and poor drainage areas, and a flood watch is in effect for most of New Jersey. Rain had flooded a number of streets in New Jersey by late Friday, including in Green Brook and on a ramp of the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee. 

"It's one of those nights you only travel 100 yards from your home," Joe Schurid, of Hoboken, said Friday night. 

Rain and wind caused flight delays at area airports during the day and into the evening. At one point, LaGuardia, Newark and JFK were all experiencing inbound flight delays of more than 2 hours. At JFK, inbound delays were more than 5 hours. 

The weekend looks mainly dry. Saturday may start with a few sprinkles, but it will be mostly windy and cool with cloudy skies and highs in upper 40s.

Sunday is the winner, with a high of 57 degrees and mostly sunny skies, Storm Team 4 says.

<![CDATA[Days Before Spring, Winter May Hit Tri-State With More Snow]]>Fri, 17 Mar 2017 23:13:29 -0400http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/17358771_1034707596674059_3407096940485584756_o.png

Two separate wintry systems are expected to pound much of the tri-state with rain and snow this weekend, and Storm Team 4 says there's a chance residents in some spots could wake up to 3 new inches -- or more -- of the white stuff Sunday morning. 

The unsettled weather is expected to begin overnight, with rain and snow showers moving in just before dawn Saturday. It'll be a messy day for most of the region. While areas south and east of the city will most likely see precipitation change over to rain once temperatures rise above freezing, colder spots north and west of I-80 will continue to see mainly snow showers, Storm Team 4 says. Areas in between should see a mix. 

Daytime highs will vary across the region, but should range from the upper 30s to the low 40s. 

Part two of the storm forms Saturday evening, when a coastal storm will start brewing offshore and bring back somewhat colder air back into the area, along with accumulating snow across Long Island, the Hudson Valley and southwestern Connecticut. The heaviest snow should fall overnight Saturday into Subday morning.

Current projections show up to 3 inches of snow in city, mostly accumulating Saturday night, and 3 to 6 inches north and west of the city accumulating slowly through the day, especially in higher elevations. Eastern Suffolk County could see up to 6 inches or more of snow. 

Blustery and cold weather returns later in the day Sunday, and then spring officially arrived 6:28 a.m. Monday, when temperatures are expected to reach the mid-40s. After a slight uptick Tuesday, the mercury plunges back into the 30s for Wednesday before inching back up to the 40s again.

<![CDATA[Shifty Nor'easter Slams Tri-State With Snow, Wind and Floods]]>Tue, 14 Mar 2017 19:57:18 -0400http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/180*120/updated+noaa+gif.gif

UPDATE: Transit Chugs Back to Life as Nor'easter Moves Out; Digout Continues

States of emergency were declared in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut as a ferocious nor'easter descended on the region, dumping more than a foot of snow in spots amid dangerous cold and winds. 

Initial forecasts had predicted a foot and a half of snow for New York City, but models early Tuesday shifted west, meaning more of a wintry mix for the city and heavier snow inland. Some northern spots saw 15-plus inches by midday.

Storm Team 4's latest projections call for anywhere from 3 to 12 inches of snow in the city, depending on the borough, with up to 2 feet still possible in areas significantly farther north, and lesser amounts in coastal New Jersey. By 6:30 a.m., early-morning snow in Bay Shore had already shifted to rain. 

The National Weather Service lifted its blizzard warning for New York City, but the warning remained in effect for nearly two dozen counties across the metro area. Coastal flood warnings were also issued during high tide for four of the five boroughs (excluding Manhattan), the Jersey Shore and the South Shore of Long Island. High tide occurs at different times throughout the morning depending on location. Check latest weather alerts.

Despite the lowered snow projections in urban areas, Storm Team 4 says the storm, which started late Monday, will likely be the biggest of the winter for most of the region. The snow is not the only story, though. The dynamic storm may also feature thunder and lightning. Wind gusts could near 60 mph at times on Long Island, bringing the potential for widespread power outages. About 1,500 PSE&G customers (out of 1.1 million) were without power shortly after 9 a.m., but that number was expected to increase.

In New Jersey, there were about 30,000 outages across the state, according to Gov. Christie Tuesday afternoon. That included 13,000 outages reported by PSE&G, and 5,000 at Jersey Central Power and Light. All power is expected to be fully restored by the end of day Wednesday.

Snow began falling in the tri-state shortly before midnight and rapidly intensified before dawn. Storm Team 4 said heavy snow would fall most of the day, with up to 3 inches of snow dropping every hour in the early afternoon. By 10 a.m., 13 inches had accumulated in parts of north New Jersey. In Wantage, 17 inches of coated the ground. Central Park notched 4 inches, while parts of Queens saw 7 inches. Rockland and Orange counties were among the hardest hit, with 10 to 13 inches in spots. Check the latest snow totals in your neighborhood.

Meanwhile, schools were closed across the region. Mayor de Blasio took the unusual step of announcing the shutdown early Monday afternoon, well ahead of the worst of the storm, because of the confidence of the models. School districts in New Jersey and Connecticut followed suit shortly thereafter. De Blasio said early Tuesday afternoon schools would reopen Wednesday.

Gov. Cuomo said 2,000 National Guard troops had been called up and would be deployed to the southern tier. Non-essential state employees in areas impacted by the storm were asked to stay home Tuesday.

MTA subway service above ground was suspended at 4 a.m. but was set to resume at 6 p.m. Buses were running at reduced levels and the NYCT said cancellations and suspensions were expected. Cuomo said the MTA is expecting a normal rush Wednesday. See latest transit changes here. 

Metro-North service was also shut down at noon because of the combined wind-snow effect but was set to resume limited service at 6 p.m.. A tractor-trailer ban on many state highways was in effect.

"Over 90 percent of flights are canceled and government, schools are closed," Cuomo tweeted. "There is no reason to be on the roads. It's dangerous."

In Connecticut, Gov. Malloy issued a statewide travel ban at 5 a.m. It was to be lifted at 5 p.m. Tuesday.

In New Jersey, Gov. Christie says state employees should expect to return to work Wednesday.

"My intention right now is to have all state offices be open tomorrow, and be open at normal operating hours across the state," he said at an afternoon news conference Tuesday.

Christie says it's up to each school district to decide whether to close Wednesday. He expects schools in the south and central parts of New Jersey to "be open, for sure." Schools in the eight northern counties hit harder by the storm will have to make their own determinations. 

Falling and blowing snow with strong winds created whiteout conditions at times, making travel extremely dangerous if not impossible. Dozens of accidents were reported across the region. 

Though parts of the Jersey Shore were only expected to see a trace to a few inches of snow, coastal flooding and beach erosion pose a threat to shoreline communities. Video and photos posted to social media showed water bubbling in the streets of some beachfront communities by midday.

Storm Team 4 says the system will pull away from the tri-state between between 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Light snow showers are in the forecast for Wednesday ahead of a blustery and sunny day Thursday. Highs will be in the 30s throughout the week, with St. Patrick's Day seeing the warmest temperatures and a mix of clouds and sun. 

Last Friday, a winter storm system dropped half a foot of snow on parts of the tri-state. It's not unusual for significant snow to fall in March in New York City. According to the National Weather Service, the city has seen storms with accumulations of at least 10 inches in March five times since 1888.

New York City has seen significantly less snow this winter compared to last year. It has snowed 20.5 inches so far this season compared to 32.3 inches by this time in 2016, an amount that was buoyed by one of the largest snowstorms in the city's history last January.

<![CDATA[States of Emergency Across Tri-State as Nor'easter Arrives]]>Tue, 14 Mar 2017 06:54:21 -0400http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/180*120/noaa+radar+satellite+tuesday.gif

UPDATE: Projected Snow Totals Dip as Models Shift West; Latest Forecast, Expectations Here

A blizzard warning covered most of the tri-state Tuesday morning and a state of emergency was declared in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut as a nor'easter moved in. The storm is expected to bury the region in at least a foot of snow over a dangerously cold, windy 24-hour period.

Storm Team 4 says the storm, which started late Monday, will likely be the biggest of the winter, and 12 to 18 inches of snow are expected to fall on the city and immediate surrounding areas. Some spots could get up to 2 feet. Wind gusts will frequently top 40 mph and could near 60 mph at times on Long Island.

Snow began falling in the tri-state shortly before midnight Monday and rapidly intensified shortly before dawn. Storm Team 4 says heavy snow will fall most of the day, with up to 3 inches of snow dropping every hour in the early afternoon. The dynamic storm may even feature thunder and lightning. 

Mayor de Blasio declared a state of emergency for New York City beginning at midnight, and he announced that New York City public schools would be closed Tuesday. The same was expected for schools in New Jersey and Connecticut. Check school closings.

A state of emergency has also been declared for New York state beginning at midnight, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced. Non-essential state employees in areas being impacted by the storm are asked not to report to work Tuesday.

"Normally we have one region of the state affected and we deploy assets to the affected region," Cuomo said in a telephone news conference Monday afternoon. "This is a statewide situation, so we must deployed statewide which spreads our resources thin." 

Two thousand National Guard troops are being called up across the state. 

Similar states of emergency have been declared in New Jersey and Connecticut. A statewide travel ban will begin in Connecticut at 5 a.m., Gov. Malloy said. 

MTA subway service above ground was suspended at 4 a.m. and Staten Island Railway service was also suspended. Buses were running at reduced levels and the NYCT said cancellations and suspensions were expected. 

Metro-North will run on a reduced Sunday schedule Tuesday, with service on the New Cannan, Danbury, Waterbury and Wassaic branches, MTA said. LIRR would offer a normal weekday schedule, but cancellations are expected as conditions worsen. See latest transit changes here. There will be no Branch Line. 

The Hudson River Line bus service have been canceled for the day. 

East River Ferry service is suspending service on Tuesday. 

The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for the entire tri-state, except for Ocean and eastern Suffolk counties, which are under a winter storm warning. Coastal flood warnings were also issued during high tide for the Jersey Shore and the South Shore of Long Island. High tide occurs at different times throughout the morning depending on location. Check the latest storm advisories here.

Falling and blowing snow with strong winds and poor visibilities are likely, the National Weather Service said. This will lead to whiteout conditions, making travel extremely dangerous if not impossible. The worst weather window will be early morning Tuesday through Tuesday afternoon, Storm Team 4 says. Intense wind gusts could cause power outages across the region.  

In New York City, salt spreaders began hitting the roads Monday evening. As soon as snow accumulation reaches 2 inches, 1,600 snow plows from the sanitation department and 80 plows from the DOT will get to work, de Blasio says. 

The mayor warned people to stay off the roads, as whiteout conditions are expected and blacktop won't be visible for awhile at the height of the storm. 

"We're going to be hit with a tremendous challenge in the coming hours," he said. 

The state of emergency for New York City will clarify the ability of the NYPD and all city agencies to act as needed to keep roads clear and ensure the safety of residents, according to de Blasio. 

Newark has also declared a state of emergency. Residents in New Jersey's largest city are being asked to move their cars from snow emergency routes, and on all other streets, to park their cars on the side with even house numbers. Alternative parking lots are being provided at some lots, listed here. Garbage pick-up, recycling and street sweeping are suspended until further notice. 

Forecast models on Tuesday morning put the storm slightly offshore, which is the track that includes the heaviest snowfall for the city and surrounding suburbs, according to Storm Team 4.

Snow is expected to mix with sleet and rain along the Jersey Shore and in Suffolk County. The coasts are expected to see less snow totals as a result, with less than 6 inches of snow predicted for southern Ocean County and the Hamptons. Coastal flooding and beach erosion, however, pose a threat to shoreline communities.

Storm Team 4 says the system will pull away from the tri-state between between 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Light snow showers are in the forecast for Wednesday ahead of a blustery and sunny day Thursday. Highs will be in the 30s throughout the work week, with St. Patrick's Day seeing the warmest temperatures and a mix of clouds and sun. 

Last Friday a winter storm system dropped half a foot of snow on parts of the tri-state. It's not unusual for significant snow to fall in March in New York City. According to the National Weather Service, the city has seen storms with accumulations of at least 10 inches in Marsh five times since 1888, though Tuesday's storm has the potential to blow them all out of the water.

New York City has seen significantly less snow this winter compared to last year. It has snowed 20.5 inches so far this season compared to 32.3 inches by this time in 2016, an amount that was buoyed by one of the largest snowstorms in the city's history last January.

Storm Team 4 breaks down the timeline and what to expect.]]><![CDATA[Snow Prep Emergency Checklist: 15 Things to Do Right Now]]>Mon, 13 Mar 2017 12:54:51 -0400http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/food+drive+generic.jpg

The New York metropolitan area is preparing for a late-season storm that is expected to bring significant snowfall to much of the region.

The city could see up to 18 inches of snow, while some spots in the tri-state area may get hit with up to 2 feet, meteorologists say. Mayor de Blasio has already announced New York City schools will be closed Tuesday, and local and state officials across the region are urging residents to get prepared now. 

Here’s a compilation of snowstorm checklists from American Red Cross, the CDC and FEMA (also be sure to check our snow guide for the latest news you need to know about mass transit, roads and air travel).

  1. Keep a full tank of gas in your vehicle. A full tank will keep the fuel line from freezing. 
  2.  


  3. Have a first aid kit ready. Refill all of your prescriptions for at least a week's supply. Also make sure you’ve stocked for other medical items, such as contact lens solution and extra batteries for hearing aids. Don't forget any hygienic products like extra tampons and toothpaste.

  4. Lots of warm clothing and blankets are a must.

  5. If you have little ones, check baby supplies like formula, clean bottles, diapers and baby food. Make sure you have enough!

  6. Prepare battery-powered flashlights or lanterns (with extra batteries!). If the power goes out, avoid using candles. If you do use them, never leave them alone.

  7. Get a portable cellphone charger if you don't have one -- the kind that will work without electricity.

  8. Have a battery-powered carbon monoxide detector as back-up.

  9. A battery-powered radio will help keep you connected to alerts if the power does go out.

  10. Batteries, batteries, batteries.



  11. Have a supply of drinking water for at least three days. For other water sources, you can fill your bathtub. As a final resort, you can melt snow; boiling it will get rid of germs but may not get rid of some accumulated chemicals in it.



  12. Have a supply of canned or easily prepared food for at least three days. Look for peanut butter, crackers, trail mixes, and canned meats or fish. Some fruits like citrus fruits have a shelf life of two weeks without refrigeration. And by the way, don't expect grocery delivery to go out in what is likely to be dangerous conditions; Peapod has already said they are canceling Saturday and Sunday delivery.

  13. If you have a pet, don't forget pet supplies!

  14. If you have another supply of heat, such as  by space or kerosene heaters, make sure to keep them at least three feet away from anything flammable such as furniture or drapes. Never, ever leave kerosene heaters unattended, and make sure that both space heaters and kerosene heaters are turned off when you go to sleep.

  15. Keep a supply of rock salt for walkways and sand or cat litter to add traction. Also, help your neighborhood by digging out fire hydrants and note where fire hydrants are in your area.

  16. If you must use your car (which officials are strongly warning against), stock it with a mini kit of supplies, including a first aid kit, blankets, extra clothing, batteries, cell charger and booster cables.

    <![CDATA[Blizzard Warning Issued Ahead of Crippling Nor'easter]]>Mon, 13 Mar 2017 10:00:50 -0400http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/blizzard+warning+totals.jpg

    UPDATE: Ferocious Nor'easter Threatens to Dump Up to 2 Feet of Snow; Latest Forecast, What to Expect

    A blizzard warning was issued for New York City and much of the tri-state ahead of a potentially crippling nor'easter that's expected to bring heavy snow and strong winds throughout the day Tuesday. 

    Storm Team 4 says the storm will likely be the biggest of the winter and a foot of snow could potentially drop in the tri-state. The metro New York region could see up to 12 to 18 inches of snow, with some spots getting up to 2 feet. Wind gusts will frequently top 40 mph and could near 60 mph at times on Long Island.

    The National Weather Service issued the blizzard warning for New York City and Long Island, as well as Fairfield, Westchester, Rockland, Bergen, Hudson, Essex, Union, Monmouth and Ocean counties all day Tuesday. A winter storm warning was in effect for the entire rest of the tri-state, including parts of North Jersey and the Hudson Valley. 

    A blizzard warning was issued in anticipation of blowing snow and extremely poor visibility — conditions that will start late Monday and continue through Tuesday evening. The worst weather window will be early morning Tuesday through Tuesday afternoon, Storm Team 4 says.

    Forecast models on Sunday night were continuing to put the storm slightly offshore, which is the track that includes the heaviest snowfall for the city and surrounding suburbs, according to Storm Team 4.

    If the storm ends up shifting closer to land, there's a higher chance that snow will mix with sleet and rain. Coastal flooding and beach erosion will be even more of a concern for shoreline communities, as the rain and sleet that were expected to stay out at sea batter the coasts instead. Suffolk and Ocean counties are the areas most likely to see sleet, rain and coastal erosion.

    A coastal flood watch was issued for Brooklyn, Staten Island and southern Queens for Tuesday morning in anticipation of possible flooding. 

    On Sunday, dry and cold weather was pushing average highs about 15 or 20 degrees below the seasonal norm for March. Lows were forecast to drop into the 20s in Manhattan and into the teens in the suburbs Sunday night. Monday will be cloudy, chilly and quiet, with highs in the low 30s ahead of Tuesday's storm.

    Snowflakes will start to fall in the tri-state between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. Tuesday. Heavy snow will fall most of the day, with up to 3 inches of snow dropping every hour in the early afternoon, according to Storm Team 4. It will be the biggest snow storm for most of the tri-state, with many areas getting more than a foot of snow and some getting up to two feet.  

    Storm Team 4 says the system will pull away from the tri-state between between 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday.

    Some more snow showers are in the forecast for Wednesday ahead of a blustery and sunny day Thursday. Highs will be in the 30s throughout the work week, with St. Patrick's Day seeing the warmest temperatures and a mix of clouds and sun. 

    Last Friday a winter storm system dropped half a foot of snow on parts of the tri-state. 

    After the storm moved out by Friday evening, Middletown, New York had seen 6 inches accumulate, while Port Jervis and Mastic Beach, along with Monroe, Connecticut, had 5 inches. Seven inches covered the ground in Orange County's Montgomery. The five boroughs saw less snow, with Central Park getting about 2 inches. 

    New York City has seen significantly less snow this winter compared to last year. It has snowed 20.5 inches so far this season compared to 32.3 inches by this time in 2016, an amount that was buoyed by one of the largest snowstorms in the city's history last January.

    <![CDATA[Dangerous Black Ice, Brutal Cold Ahead]]>Sat, 11 Mar 2017 00:13:38 -0400http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/snowy+nyc+commute+friday+copy.jpg

    A winter storm system dropped half a foot of snow on parts of the tri-state Friday, bringing a bone-chilling cold front that was expected to keep temperatures below freezing all weekend. 

    All that snow will freeze solid overnight, Storm Team 4 says, and there will be plenty of black ice and slippery spots, especially on untreated surfaces, on both Saturday and Sunday morning. Gusty winds will put wind chills in the single digits and teens all day Saturday, with little improvement on Sunday. 

    After the storm moved out by Friday evening, Middletown, New York had seen 6 inches accumulate, while Port Jervis and Mastic Beach, along with Monroe, Connecticut, had 5 inches. Seven inches covered the ground in Orange County's Montgomery. The five boroughs saw less snow, with Central Park getting about 2 inches. 

    Nearly 300 flights were canceled at Newark, JFK and LaGuardia as a result of the snow Friday. Alternate side parking was suspended in New York City Friday to facilitate snow removal efforts, and NJ Transit said full systemwide cross-honoring was in effect Friday, allowing customers to use their ticket or pass across rail, bus or light rail. Meanwhile, Metro-North warned customers to be wary of slippery platforms. 

    Storm Team 4 is tracking another winter system with the potential to dump 6 inches of snow or more on the tri-state area early next week.

    New York City has seen significantly less snow this winter compared to last year. It has snowed 20.5 inches so far this season compared to 32.3 inches by this time in 2016, an amount that was buoyed by one of the largest snowstorms in the city's history last January.

    <![CDATA[Severe Storms Coming Our Way Amid Possible Record Temps]]>Thu, 02 Mar 2017 00:13:27 -0400http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/AP_7430112232891.jpg

    Unseasonably warm conditions Wednesday brought near-record breaking temperatures along with some unsettled weather, Storm Team 4 says. 

    A potent cold front heading toward the tri-state area generated scattered storms throughout the day Wednesday, though most was spared the heavy rain and winds that were initially poised to sweep through before the storm weakened. 

    Area airports braced for major delays, and LaGuardia had to shut down one of its runways for a short time earlier in the day after a lightning strike damaged the pavement. By early afternoon, average delays for arriving flights at JFK were more than four hours, with 90-minute delays reported at Newark and LaGuardia.

    A wind advisory -- which is issued when sustained winds hit 31 to 39 mph or gusts reach 46 to 57 mph -- is in effect for nine New York counties, including the five boroughs, and parts of New Jersey and Connecticut from 7 p.m. Wednesday through 7 p.m. Thursday. The strongest winds are expected Thursday morning. 

    The first day of March will feel more like May, though, with warmer air surging up from the southwest expected to drive temperatures 20 degrees higher than average for this time of year. Though clouds will dominate throughout the day, the mercury will surge into the 60s and 70s across the region, Storm Team 4 says, with 71 projected for Central Park. 

    Once the front moves through Wednesday evening, showers and storms will taper off and clouds will slowly start to break up. Winds will continue to strengthen in wake of the front, gusting up to 40 to 50 mph in spots. Colder and drier air will start to flow back into the region, and temperatures will steadily begin to fall overnight. 

    Daytime highs will peak in the upper 40s Thursday morning, but will slide into the lower to mid 40s by the afternoon as colder air continues to slide in, Storm Team 4 says. With winds gusting up to 50 mph, it will feel much more like it is in the 20s and 30s outside. You’ll need your heavier jacket through the remainder of the week, as highs only be in the lower 40s on Friday, and only in the upper 30s on Saturday. 

    A weak clipper system could spew off a few wet snow showers Friday morning, but other than that conditions look to remain dry and blustery. Winds will briefly ease overnight Thursday into Friday, but will pick up again later on Friday as the clipper system moves out.

    New Yorkers left their coats at home and crowded the parks on Sunday to enjoy record-setting warm weather that felt more like April than February. 

    JFK airport hit 68 degrees and Newark reached 69 degrees, knocking down the record of 66 set in both places in 1997. 

    LaGuardia airport got up to 66 degrees and Bridgeport topped out at 63 degrees, also new record highs for the day. 

    Although Central Park fell shy of a record, the balmy day and sunshine drew throngs of New Yorkers out for fresh air and a sneak peek of spring. 

    President’s Day will be slightly cooler, about 50 degrees, but it'll still be unseasonably mild. '

    Tuesday will see more seasonable weather with highs in the mid-40s and a chance for rain after sunset. 

    Then it gets warm again, with a chance for temps nearing 60 degrees both Wednesday and Thursday.

    NOAA is forecasting an unseasonably warm spring ahead, despite what Puxatony Phil predicted earlier this month. Maybe Staten Island Chuck should become the national groundhog. He predicted an early spring.

    <![CDATA[Temps Hit 60-Degree Mark for President's Day Weekend]]>Sun, 19 Feb 2017 12:23:26 -0400http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/WarmWinterNYC.jpg

    The mild temperatures and abundant sunshine throughout Saturday will continue a spring-like Presidents Day weekend with temperatures expected to break the 60-degree mark Sunday. 

    Temperatures warmed to an above-average 61 degrees in Central Park by mid-afternoon Saturday as bitter winds subsided. Sunday consists of mostly sunny skies and dry weather. Some temperature highs may be broken today as highs climb into the mid-60s.

    A weak cold front will slowly move through the tri-state Sunday, but we won't receive chilly temps — the cold front will be so weak that high temperatures will still reach well above normal. However, a stronger cold front will roll through during the overnight into Monday morning.

    President’s Day will be slightly cooler, about 50 degrees, but it'll still be unseasonably mild.

    Highs will be near or in the 50s throughout next week. The week starts sunny but becomes progressively cloudier ahead of possible showers Friday. Showers are possible late Tuesday and are likely early Wednesday.

    By next Saturday, highs should be back up in the mid-50s.

    NOAA is forecasting an unseasonably warm spring ahead, despite what Puxatony Phil predicted earlier this month. Maybe Staten Island Chuck should become the national groundhog. He predicted an early spring.
