<![CDATA[StormTracker 4: The Most Powerful Radar in the Tri-State]]>Thu, 22 Mar 2018 06:25:40 -0500https://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/StormTracker+4.jpg

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

The state-of-the-art high-frequency S-band radar brings 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[What Went Sideways? Storm Team 4 Recaps Snowvember Nightmare]]>Fri, 16 Nov 2018 16:06:14 -0500https://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/Snowfall+Map+1+111618A.png

How could 6 inches of snow turn into such a disaster for a city accustomed to handling feet? What happened with the forecast? Why was it all such a mess? We can't answer all those questions, but Storm Team 4 offers a bit of a forecast post-mortem on the storm that will henceforth be known as #Snowvember.

THE SETUP

High pressure centered in northern New England brought us a sunny and cold start to the day Thursday. Temperatures were below freezing throughout most of the tri-state area, and the air was bone-dry, setting the stage for accumulating snow. At the same time, a coastal storm was making its way northward.

THE FORECAST

On Wednesday night, Storm Team 4 predicted that snow would move into the tri-state area, changing to a wintry mix in the afternoon before changing to rain in the evening. That initial forecast called for 1 to 3 inches of snow and sleet in the city and close-in suburbs. By Thursday morning, the forecast totals were increased. The new forecast for the city called for 3 to 5 inches. An evening transition to rain was still in the forecast. 

THE REALITY

As predicted, snow began to fall in the city shortly after noon. The intensity picked up very quickly, and importantly, a wintry mix did not develop in the afternoon. The mixing factor, with sleet and freezing rain, would have kept snow totals on the lower side. It wasn’t until 8 p.m. that Central Park began reporting a wintry mix, and at 9 p.m., light rain was falling atop several inches of snow. 

THE WHY 

The precipitation remained as snow for a longer period of time than expected. This is probably due to evaporational cooling. The bone-dry airmass on Thursday morning had a tremendous capacity to steal moisture from the falling snow.

When moisture evaporates, it cools the air surrounding it. This cooling process likely caused the snow portion of our winter weather event to last a few hours longer than expected. By the time rain took over, there was plenty of snow on the ground, and that prevented quick melting. Also, the rain fell very lightly in the city through the evening hours. It was not heavy enough to penetrate the snowpack, which again prevented further melting. Instead, many of us in the tri-state ended up with compacted snow and ice covering streets and sidewalks.

The first snowfall of the season buried most of the tri-state area under at least a half-foot of snow, with at least one community in the highest elevations in New York getting a whopping 18.3 inches. Travel was paralyzed. Kids were trapped in schools. It was an all around nightmare the city has pledged to "review."

Central Park saw 6.4 inches, marking the earliest time in November that much accumulation has been recorded. In northern New Jersey, people abandoned their cars in the middle of the streets. Then the rain washed much of the white stuff away.

<![CDATA['We Demand Answers': Abject Chaos Over 6 Inches of Snow]]>Sat, 17 Nov 2018 02:20:39 -0500https://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/snow+montage+lead.jpg

The first snowfall of the season may have been the most nightmarish 6 inches in tri-state history, stranding children in their schools, commuters at transit hubs and debilitating New York City in a way many said they've never before seen.

The city's Department of Education was still running school bus routes after 11 p.m. Thursday, according to a tweet from the agency. At least one commuter described a harrowing 13-hour trip home. And commuters, along with their elected officials, are not holding back their frustration, with some even calling for Mayor de Blasio to step down Friday over the abject chaos from 6 inches.

"Mayor Bill de Blasio, step down," one commenter wrote on NBC 4 New York's Facebook page. "The chaos that happened today is completely unacceptable. Clearly, you were unprepared and for that you should lose your job."

"Yesterday was a failure. A disaster," said city council member Vanessa Gibson, who spent nine hours in her car getting back to the Bronx. "I'm beyond pissed with this administration."

It was equally disastrous in New Jersey

De Blasio, in a news conference Friday afternoon flanked by top police, fire and schools officials, declined to address those calls for his resignation. He did concede he was unhappy with the city's performance but described what happened as "a kind of perfect storm."

“Normally 3 to 5 inches of snow would not have posed this kind of problem," he said. “We are trying to learn some lessons and figure out what we can do better.”

The mayor also said there would be a full audit of the city's response to the storm. 

"I am very frustrated with what happened. I am upset," he said, but "I don't think it's fair to say city agencies could have stopped all this." 

Roads were hardly completely clear by early Friday, with multiple straphangers reporting delays waiting for MTA buses and trains.  

De Blasio's spokesperson, Eric Phillips, said the early storm meant that MTA didn't have snow chains on its buses. He said many of them had to pull over, "further clogging streets."

Photos showed rubbernecking from the West Side Highway to Upper Manhattan, with buses becoming disabled and getting stuck in intersections as frustrated drivers abandoned their cars to get out and walk.

U.S. Rep. Adriano Espaillat, (D-NY), called it “unacceptable.”

“Transportation and transit are the lifeblood of our city. 3 inches of snow have crippled #NYC,” he tweeted. "Moms are stranded with their kids, people are running out of gas. We demand answers.”

As driver after driver sat in the worst traffic jams anyone can remember, as tree limbs pliunged down and as school buses sat stuck for hours with kids on them, New Yorkers began to reach their boiling points. 

"It was a nightmare," said Rene Servis, who said she almost got into two crashes. "I cried. I wept. I had a meltdown." 

"The bottom line is what happened is unacceptable," City Council Speaker Corey Johnson said Friday. "For New Yorkers who sat in three, five, eight hours of traffic, I'm sorry. We need to do a better job." 

The scene in some places, but for the amount of snow, was almost remniscent of the Christmas blizzard nightmare that happened while Michael Bloomberg was in office. That storm, unlike Thursday's, dumped 20 inches of snow in Central Park. Streets were unplowed for days. 

Nearly 150 trees fell in Manhattan, crushing cars and hurting a cop and EMTs. More than 300 downed limbs were reported and at least 40 remained hanging; the city warned people to stay out of parks Friday over concern more could fall. 

Though public schools were open again Friday, the city canceled all afterschool programs and some field trips. That only compounded the ire, with a flurry of Twitter users demanding to know why that was not the case a day earlier.

Though it was hardly a blizzard, Thursday’s storm was the snowiest in November in 80 years, Storm Team 4 says. It dropped 8 inches of the white stuff in Central Park, more in parts of New Jersey and Connecticut and even more than a foot in places in Orange County. The PM commute was a disaster of epic proportions.

Traffic all across the region was brought to a crawl, while it was completely paralyzed it in some spots. Downed trees throughout the city caused traffic gridlocks and the Port Authority Bus Terminal had to be partially shut down due to overcrowding. The terminal had become an immovable block of wall-to-wall commuters all gazing up at the schedule board. Lines of people waited to get into the terminal as officials urged them to take trains or ferries.

Two severe accidents on the George Washington Bridge Thursday afternoon -- one of them involved 25 vehicles -- added to the existing traffic nightmares. 

The Port Authority said eight trucks began salting the GWB at around 1 p.m. First snow started falling at 2 p.m., which changed to freezing rain, rapidly creating slick conditions, before the 25-vehicle pileup on the eastbound side at 2:35 p.m. and the tractor-trailer accident on the westbound side at 3:20 p.m., both on the upper level. The upper level was shut down entirely as a result. 

After sitting for hours in bumper-to-bumper traffic on the lower level, people bailed out of vehicles and started trekking over the bridge and snow-covered ramp back to Manhattan, filing toward the 178th Street exit.

"All delays pose an inconvenience to the traveling public," the Port Authority said in a statement Friday. "Extreme ones that extend for hours cause tremendous frustration and we do everything in our power to prevent them." 

De Blasio, at his news conference, said the bridge accident was probably the number one factor in the overall transit catastrophe. 

The city's sanitation department deployed only half their full arsenal of 2,200 pieces of equipment, sending out just 700 salt spreaders and 300 plows. And 1,600 workers were on normal shifts Thursday, compared to the typical 2,100 workers that are typically deployed during serious winter storms. 

Sanitation commissioner Kathryn Garcia said Friday that even with the hundreds of spreaders ready to go, "we really couldn't move" because traffic had come to a halt. 

"I had spreaders that sat for hours and hours without moving," she said at the news conference Friday. "We were ready to go with spreaders but the forecast did not change. It was a challenge to everyone."

At the height of the storm, when the George Washington Bridge closed, the city became paralyzed, Garcia acknowledged, adding that the department would look at contingencies for when traffic gets that bad. 

"I don't think I realized how important the GWB is for the entire region," she said, adding, "It's almost like we needed lights and sirens on spreaders." 

Council speaker Johnson said, "You have to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. And yesterday there was not an appropriate amount of preparation."

UPDATE: Total Chaos Over 6 Inches? Some Call for NYC Mayor to Resign

The first snowstorm of the season to hit the New York City area brought several inches of heavy, wet snow that slowed the evening's commute to a crawl, completely paralyzing it in some spots. 

The snowfall Thursday downed countless tree branches throughout the city, causing traffic gridlock in some areas. Police advised people to stay indoors and avoid the roads, if possible, but it was too late for commuters trying to get home. Check the latest traffic and transit advisories here

The Port Authority Bus Terminal had to be partially shut down due to overcrowding. Lines outside the terminal were stretching around the block even as the evening rush wound down. Officials say the poor weather made it difficult for buses to reach the terminal.

Early Wednesday, NJ Transit said bus riders should plan for extra travel time and expect delays and cancellations on Friday because "many bus operators worked past their normal end times.

Federal law requires a mandated rest period, which means some operators may not be available for morning service."

Newark's Penn Station was also a nightmare for many, packed wall to wall with exasperated commuters, who resorted to pushing and shoving amid the disorder and lack of communication. The Long Island Rail Road and New Jersey Transit also had systemwide delays.

A multi-vehicle accident on the George Washington Bridge added to the traffic nightmare. After sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic, people bailed out of vehicles and started trekking over the bridge and snow-covered ramp back to Manhattan, filing toward the 178th Street exit. 

The city's sanitation department says it had nearly 700 salt spreaders pre-deployed around the city by noontime, but the "afternoon snowfall was much heavier than had been forecast by all weather outlets requiring that we deploy plows," according to spokesman Vito Turso.

"Complicating issues was the fact that several bridges were closed, and traffic, particularly in the Bronx, upper Manhattan and on Staten Island, came to a halt with our snow clearing equipment stuck within," said Turso. 

Storm Team 4 had predicted snow early in the week, with projected totals creeping up Wednesday into Thursday. 

The sanitation department says more than 1,000 pieces of equipment will work through the night to clear all roadways for the morning's rush hour. Alternate side parking is suspended Friday. 

Mayor de Blasio tweeted Thursday night: "First storm of the year hit hard and right at rush hour, downing trees and causing delays. @NYCSanitation plows and salt spreaders are making progress as traffic eases. They'll be out all night to get roads clear before the AM commute."

In New Jersey, the Bayonne Bridge was shut down for hours (it has since reopened), all the major tunnels saw delays, and stretches of major highways -- including the Garden State, I-280, I-78, RT-10 and RT-130 -- were closed at the height of the storm. The Palisades Parkway was at a standstill at one point. And late Thursday night, all major arteries running through Newark were shut down, with police citing icing and collisions. 

Flight delays crept up to over four hours at Kennedy Airport, and they weren't much better at Newark and LaGuardia airports.  

Children were stuck for hours on school buses after dismissal. One News 4 reporter said her daughter had been sitting on her bus for over two hours, at one point completely stuck over the Harlem River. Another reporter said her daughter's afterschool bus was taking a two-hour journey for the Upper East Side to Murray Hill, and a counselor called parents to give them updates -- they reported MTA buses stuck all over the Upper East Side and streets closed everywhere. 

The storm made this the snowiest November in 80 years, with 6 inches recorded in Central Park.

<![CDATA[Nearly 150 Trees Downed Across NYC During Snowstorm]]>Fri, 16 Nov 2018 19:19:38 -0500https://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/tree+on+car+ues.png

The first snowstorm of the season has ripped down more than 100 trees across Manhattan, injuring a cop and EMTs, crushing cars and blocking streets during an already difficult commute Thursday. 

Snow started falling heavily Thursday afternoon, and by the evening, nearly 150 trees were reported down across New York City, the city parks department said. Forty hanging limbs and more than 300 downed limbs were reported. 

On East 35th Street and 2nd Avenue, an NYPD detective from the emergency services unit was working to remove a tree when another large tree branch fell on his head. He was taken to NYU Hospital with minor injuries. 

Trees were reported down all across the rest of Manhattan, from the Upper East Side to midtown to the West Village. One even fall on top of an ambulance, injuring two EMTs on the Lower East Side, officials said.

The forestry team in the city parks department will be out early Friday morning to inspect and address reported tree fallings, a spokeswoman says. A disproportionate number of tree service calls are coming from Manhattan, so crews based in Brooklyn and Queens will be dispatched to the borough as early as 6 a.m. Friday. 

The NYPD and FDNY are responding to emergency-based fallings and clearing street blockages. 

New Yorkers should call 311 to report a fallen tree, or 911 if it's causing an emergency. 

Parks aren't closed, but the city reminded people not to enter them during the storm. The inner paths of Union Square were closed Thursday evening as a safety measure, and will remain closed Friday morning.

<![CDATA[Road, Mass Transit Mess Lingers Into Friday After Snowstorm]]>Fri, 16 Nov 2018 17:29:55 -0500https://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/214*120/GettyImages-634384536.jpg

UPDATE: First Snowstorm of Season Paralyzes Traffic, Mucks Up Mass Transit During Rush Hour

Snow was heavy, wet and fast to fall Thursday, and the precipitation mix made for slick roads and hazardous travel, and accidents and disabled vehicles reported across the tri-state. Here's what you need to know as you get home. 

BRIDGES, TUNNELS AND ROADS

  • George Washington Bridge was roughly back to normal after a multiple-vehicle accident Thursday shut down the upper level. 
  • Bayonne Bridge was reopened at 8 p.m. Thursday. 
  • Holland and Lincoln tunnels are in fairly good shape but still moving slowly after earlier rush-hour delays. 
  • Stretches of the Garden State Parkway, I-280, I-78, RT-10 and RT-130 had been closed at some points Thursday evening.
  • In Newark, icing and collisions have shut down Routes 280, 78, 21 and 22. Drivers are advised to monitor their gas while idling in traffic. 

AIRPORTS

Nearly 500 flights were canceled across Kennedy, LaGuardia and Newark airports, and nearly 1,000 more saw delays of 1 to 4 hours. 

Check with your airline to see the status of your flight. 

MASS TRANSIT

  • Port Authority Bus Terminal was closed on the second and third levels due to overcrowding; a spokesman for Port Authority said the main issue has been that only limited buses have been able to get to the terminal in Manhattan. Levels will reopen when conditions improve. 
  • NJ Transit has suspended rail service on the Gladstone branch and North Jersey Coast Line to make repairs to the damage left by the snowstorm. Restoration is expected on the NJCL with the first scheduled train Saturday, Nov. 17, and on the Gladstone branch on Monday, Nov. 19.
  • In addition, many NJ Transit bus operators worked past their normal end times and because of federal law requiring a mandated rest period some of those operators may not be available for morning service.
  • NJT urges passengers to use rail and ferry service.

Here's your Thursday forecast update.]]>
<![CDATA[Storm Team 4 Reveals Winter Outlook for 2018-19]]>Fri, 16 Nov 2018 00:01:24 -0500https://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/214*120/huff+outlook.jpg

The Storm Team 4 Winter Outlook for 2018-19 calls for higher-than-average snowfall in the tri-state area, with somewhat milder than average temperatures overall. A few key points before we dig into the long-range forecast:

  • The pattern favors more coastal storms, which tend to bring us our biggest snowstorms. 
  • We are likely to see many temperature changes this winter, swinging from milder to colder several times.
  • Ice storms are a bit more likely this year than in a typical tri-state winter.
  • A significant "January thaw" is more likely this year than in past years 

THE WHY: El Nino Factor 

The first factor in Storm Team 4’s winter weather forecast is the El Nino Southern Oscillation or ENSO. ENSO refers to the temperature difference, either warmer than average or colder, of a specific area of water near the equator in the Pacific Ocean. A big swing in temperature, either toward a strong El Nino (warmer than average temperatures) or a strong La Nina (colder than average) will affect our weather pattern for months on end.

If the signal is not as strong, like this year, the effects on the tri-state area are lessened and not as straightforward. That said, weak to possibly moderate El Nino conditions are expected to develop and continue through the winter. But even when the El Nino conditions are weak, the pattern favors the development of coastal storms, with jet stream activity bringing the active storm track to the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states. Therefore, Storm Team 4 expects above-average precipitation this winter, both in the form of rain and snow.

WILD TEMP SWINGS, RARE ICE STORM 

This winter’s El Nino is forming a bit farther north than the "Super El Nino" of 2015-16. That winter was nearly snow-free until our record-breaking blizzard in January 2016. The more northerly location of this current El Nino, combined with abnormally warm water in the Gulf of Alaska, will lead to persistent ridging in the eastern Pacific. A strong ridge in the Pacific Ocean favors the transport of Arctic air southward toward the tri-state area, setting us up for erratic temperature swings. We will see temperatures shift from above average to below average several times throughout the winter.

In fact, Storm Team 4 expects a significant "January thaw," with temperatures soaring well above average for a few days after the holiday season is over. Storm Team 4 also anticipates that these big temperature swings, combined with more frequent coastal storms, will make a fairly rare ice storm event more likely in the tri-state this winter.

SIBERIA SNOWPACK FACTOR 

An emerging area of research revolves around snowpack in the Siberia region of Russia. Analogs, or close comparisons, show that a large extent of snow in Siberia in October correlates with above average snow in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states. This October’s Siberian snowpack was not nearly as widespread as it was last October, but the snow started quickly piling up toward the end of the month, and the snowpack continues to grow today.

This should keep the cold air coming, with little interruption, in the second half of the winter. So, Storm Team 4 expects late January and the month of February to be our snowiest time frame, with three or four snowstorms of 6 inches or more during this time.

SOME UNCERTAINTY 

Other key factors are still unclear because they either haven’t formed yet, or have short time spans that cannot be predicted with high confidence. These include the North Atlantic Oscillation, which is tied to the strength of a weather pattern over Greenland, and solar cycles, which impact how much of the sun’s heat reaches Earth. If the current patterns persist, however, they will favor colder-than-average temperatures in the second half of the winter.

<![CDATA[Storm Makes This November the Snowiest Since 1938]]>Fri, 16 Nov 2018 04:39:37 -0500https://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/manhattan+snow1.jpg

The first snowstorm of the season swirled into the tri-state area early Thursday afternoon, at first gently, then with a vengeance that saw conditions rapidly deteriorate in the city and visibilities plunge across the region, ripping down trees and paralyzing roads, stranding people for hours at the height of the evening rush. 

By evening, the storm had dumped 6 inches of snow in Central Park, making it the snowiest November on record since 1938, according to Storm Team 4. At one point, snowfall was racing down at 1 to 2 inches an hour through the late afternoon. 

Roads were an abject mess at the height of the storm. Streets were gridlocked in New York City and traffic was at a complete standstill on major highways. Alternate side parking is suspended in New York City Friday to assist in snow removal. Check the latest road conditions here

The National Weather Service expanded its winter weather alerts, issuing a winter storm warning for more than a dozen tri-state counties as the storm closed in. Check the latest weather alerts for your neighborhood here and click here for school closings and delays.

For most of the region, the snow was heavy, wet and fast to fall, which lead to power outages in the hardest hit spots. The precipitation mix made for slick roads and hazardous travel across the tri-state, leading to accidents, gridlocking local roads and major highways and severely delayed mass transit. UPDATE: Snowstorm paralyzes traffic, mucks up mass transit during rush hour.

The snow eventually changed to all rain, with sleet first mixing in early in the evening before the rain/snow line moved north and northwest into the city and surrounding suburbs. Further to the north and west, the precipitation stayed as a wintry mix of snow and sleet, allowing for even more accumulation into the early hours of the morning. 

Winds picked up as well, gusting over 30 miles per hour overnight into Friday. A few rumbles of thunder are even possible as a final intense burst of precipitation moves through.

Rain and snow will continue into the Friday morning commute, ending around 9 a.m., but the winds will remain strong, despite the return of sun Friday afternoon.

Highs bump back into the mid-40s on Friday and are expected to stay in that range through the weekend, Storm Team 4 says.

The cold front that brought wet weather through much of the tri-state all through Friday is starting to move out, leaving behind chilly temperatures and gusty winds in its wake, Storm Team 4 says.

After strong winds and heavy rain slammed the area through the evening rush and into the night, people in the tri-state will be waking up to clear conditions Saturday -- but it will be cold and windy, with gusts expected around 20 to 30 mph throughout the area, and even 40 mph possible along the coast and higher elevations, Storm Team 4 says. 

Highs will only be in the 40s Saturday and keep sliding through the day, reaching mid 40s on Sunday. Both weekend days remain dry.

<![CDATA[Post-Tropical Cyclone Michael Swamps Region With Heavy Rain]]>Fri, 12 Oct 2018 08:14:45 -0500https://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/FLASH+FLOODING.jpg

The remnants of what was Hurricane Michael and is now Post-Tropical Cyclone Michael, the deadly Category 4 storm that slammed into the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday, brought pockets of heavy rain to parts of the tri-state, sparking flood warnings and watches, Storm Team 4 says.

Flood warnings were in effect in Monmouth and Ocean counties on the Jersey Shore on Friday morning. Flash flood watches were in effect for Suffolk and Nassau counties on Long Island, but have since ended. Click here for severe weather alerts for your neighborhood. 

The first patch of the heaviest rain began to push in in late Thursday evening and then another round pounded its way into the region after midnight Friday morning, forecasters said.

The remnants of Michael continued to move up the coast, but the bulk of the energy remained offshore, including the strong winds.

Still, the storm got close enough to add extra rainfall to totals in the tri-state, with a widespread 2 to 3 inches falling throughout the area. Some spots could get more than 3 inches of rain, with the highest likelihood of higher amounts along the shoreline and on Long Island, once it is all said and done. 

The rain moved out early Friday, and as the remnants of Michael moved farther offshore, clear, cool and breezy conditions were left behind.

The remnants of Hurricane Matthew, the deadly Category 4 storm that slammed into the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday, and has brought pockets of heavy rain to parts of the tri-state, sparking flood warnings and watches, Storm Team 4 says.

A flash flood warning has been issued for Monmouth and Ocean counties on the Jersey Shore, with flood watches in effect for all of Long Island. Click here for severe weather for your neighborhood.

<![CDATA[4 Tornadoes Weave Paths of Destruction Through NY, CT]]>Wed, 03 Oct 2018 23:24:34 -0500https://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/stony+point+tornado.jpg

Four tornadoes hit three separate New York counties and one Connecticut county as severe weather walloped the tri-state area Tuesday, the National Weather Service said Wednesday.

It's the most tornadoes in a day that the tri-state has seen since May 15, 2018, when there were five in the Catskills and Hudson Valley area, according to Storm Team 4.  

One twister, an EF1 with maximum sustained winds of 100 mph, touched down in Rockland County's Stony Point for about five minutes -- from 4:10 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. -- weaving a trail of destruction a mile long and 300 feet wide. Officials say it started in Harriman State Park and ended near Wilderness Drive.

"The whole house was shaking, and you could see where it was like a finger coming down, and once it passed it was calm," said homeowner Colleen Doyle. 

Another homeowner, Anthony Furia, said his granddaughter kept calling him over from the front of the house: "'Papa, there's something swirling in the front of the house.'"

Officials confirmed a second EF1 tornado that touched down at 4:47 p.m. and plowed through nearly 3.76 miles of New Castle over nine minutes. No one was injured by the twister, which had estimated maximum wind speeds of 110 mph. 

The NWS also confirmed an EF1 tornado touched down at 5:29 p.m. in New Canaan, Connecticut, touching down near Weed Street and Marshall Ridge Road, wielding a path of 100 yards wide. 

"It was very loud, very dark -- lots of thunder, lightning, and you could hear the tree branches falling," said 22-year-old Samantha Ashley, who took refuge in the family's basement with her mother before emerging to find the trail of destruction outside. At its peak, the storm left 1,000 Eversource customers without power. 

Earlier, NWS confirmed an EF0 twister with max winds of 85 mph hit Long Island's Ronkonkoma, weaving a quarter-mile-long, 600-foot-wide path of destruction between 11:20 p.m. and 11:22 p.m. Multiple homes in the area of Iroquois and Seneca streets along Mohican Avenue sustained damage and trees had visibly sheared off tops, officials said. Some also fell on cars. It was the first tornado to ever hit Long Island in October, according to records dating to 1953.

Ronkonkoma homeowners Tim Grant and Nidia Isaac said they watched things flying through the air, and by the end, the entire street looked like a war zone, with trees uprooted and smashed onto cars and houses. 

Chopper 4 showed major damage in Chappaqua earlier in the day, with fences seemingly blown apart and multiple trees totally uprooted, spewing debris over lawns. Trees were also reported down in Rockland County, while flooding rains seemed to be the bigger issue in New Jersey. 

The highest rain totals were seen in Westchester, though; Mount Kisco and Armonk each saw at least 4 inches of water. Parts of Fairfield County in Connecticut saw nearly that much, while a widespread 2 inches were seen in at least three counties in New Jersey, the National Weather Service said.

Even without torrential rain, lightning streaks tore across the sky, illuminating the World Trade Center in the city, dramatic footage showed. It was also an issue in Yaphank, about 12 miles from Ronkonkoma, where a bolt caused a fire at a family's home. The mother, father and two sons inside made it out safely; several family birds, though, were lost in the fire.

Lightning also hit a house in Ramsey, New Jersey. Officials say a man holding an electric guitar was shocked and most electronics were damaged. The condition of the man wasn't immediately known Wednesday afternoon. 

By midnight, the rain had pushed out of the five boroughs, and then around 2 a.m. it had completed its assault on Long Island. 

The heat, however, is here to stay for a few more days. Sunshine made a comeback Wednesday with temperatures reaching the upper 70s, then will shoot back into the low 80s on Thursday, Storm Team 4 says.

A brief cooldown will come Friday and Saturday with temps in the 60s, but then the mercury is expected to soar back into the upper 70s and low 80s and stay that way through the end of next week.

<![CDATA[Severe Storms Bring Hail, Tornado Threat to Tri-State]]>Tue, 02 Oct 2018 23:26:27 -0500https://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/RAIN+NYC2.jpg

A powerful storm hit the tri-state Tuesday, bringing damaging winds, small hail, heavy rain and lightning as tornado warnings and watches popped up into the night across the area. 

There were widespread reports of flooding and falling trees amid pouring rains in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The storms started roaring north and west of the city around 2:30 p.m., and began making their way through the city and Long Island later Tuesday night. 

Storm reports indicate trees down in Stony Point in Rockland County, Mount Kisco in Westchester, flooding in Wanaque in Passaic County and even reports of garage flooding in Bergen County. 

In Connecticut, trees were reported down on the Merritt Parkway in New Canaan and part of Route 15 was also shut down for downed tress in both directions. 

A tornado warning that was issued in Dutchess County Tuesday afternoon expired at 3 p.m.; severe thunderstorm warnings there and in Ulster County remained in place until 3:15 p.m. Tornado watches were in effect for Sullivan County, New Jersey, and Pike County, Pennsylvania, until 11 p.m. Check the latest weather alerts here. 

The National Weather Service said it will conduct a storm survey in Rockland, Westchester counties in New York as well as Fairfield County in Connecticut. The findings will be released by Wednesday afternoon. 

By midnight, the rain was pushing out of the five boroughs, but some severe weather was still lingering over parts of Long Island, especially Suffolk County. All the storms are expected to move out by early Wednesday.

The heat, however, is here to stay for a few more days. The sunshine will make a comeback on Wednesday with temperatures reaching the upper 70s, shooting back into the low 80s on Thursday.

A brief cool down will come Friday and Saturday with temps in the 60s, but then the mercury is expected to soar back into the upper 70s and low 80s and stay that way through the end of next week.

<![CDATA[Kamara Runs for 3 Second-Half TDs, Saints Beat Giants 33-18]]>Sun, 30 Sep 2018 18:58:45 -0500https://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/GettyImages-1043862938.jpg

Alvin Kamara ran for three second-half touchdowns and the New Orleans Saints' defense stepped out of Drew Brees' shadow in a 33-18- victory over the New York Giants on Sunday.

Wil Lutz matched his career high with four field goals as the Saints (3-1) built a 12-7 halftime lead. Kamara broke the game open with scoring runs of 9, 4 and 49 yards to ice New Orleans' third straight win and send New York to its third loss in four games. Kamara had 134 on 19 carries.

If there was a surprise, it was the Saints' defense, which came in ranked 30th in the league. After giving up a 2-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Sterling Shepard on the Giants' opening drive, New Orleans limited New York to a 33-yard field goal by Aldrick Rosas in the third quarter and a late 1-yard TD run by Saquon Barkley, followed by a 2-point conversion pass from Manning to Shepard. 

The anticipated slugfest between the 39-yard old Brees and the 37-year-old Manning never materialized. 

Brees, who came in needing 418 yards passing to break Peyton Manning's NFL career mark, finished 18 of 32 for 217 yards. Manning was 31 of 41 for 255 yards as the Giants (1-3) finished with just 299 total yards.

Lutz connected from 42, 34, 37 and 26 in the first half. Kamara stretched the lead to 19-7 with 9-yard run that capped a nine-play, 69-yard drive on New Orleans opening possession of the second half.

The 49-yard run capped a 97-yard drive for the Saints after Ted Ginn Jr. bobbled a kickoff after the Barkley score. The Saints had drives of 74 and 80 on the other touchdowns and finished the game with 392 total yards.

Rosas closed the gap to 19-10 in the third quarter, but the Saints took control with Kamara's final two TD runs in the fourth quarter.

The Giants had scored on the opening possession with Manning capping a 10-play, 75-yard drive with his short TD pass to Shepard. After that, New York gained 22 yards the rest of the half. 

INJURIES

Saints: No injuries were announced.

Giants: Beckham finished the first half in the locker room getting an IV. He returned in the second half and finished with seven receptions for 60 yards.

UP NEXT

Saints: Home against Washington for a Monday night game on Oct. 8.

Giants: At Carolina next Sunday.

<![CDATA[Wright Walks Off to Long Ovation in Farewell Game With Mets ]]>Sat, 29 Sep 2018 22:52:08 -0500https://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/GettyImages-1043186790.jpg

David Wright left to a long standing ovation before a sellout crowd at Citi Field in his farewell game for the New York Mets on Saturday night.

The team captain went 0 for 1 with a walk against the Miami Marlins and was removed after two plate appearances as planned. On defense, he handled a one-hopper to third base with no problem.

Wright, who fouled out to first base his final time up, took his position before the top of the fifth inning. Mets manager Mickey Callaway then came out of the dugout to make a lineup change, and Wright began his slow walk off the field.

As fans chanted his name and cheered for about 3 minutes, 15 seconds, Wright saluted them by touching the bill of his cap and patting his chest repeatedly. He went down the line and hugged all his teammates just in front of the Mets' dugout, with Marlins players standing and applauding from across the field.

His stellar career cut short by injuries, the 35-year-old Wright completed an arduous comeback by returning to the majors this week for the first time since May 27, 2016. Unable to fully overcome his physical setbacks, he said he expects Saturday to be his last big league game even though his contract runs through 2020.

With watery eyes, Wright took a bow, blew a kiss to the crowd and came out of the dugout for a curtain call before heading up the runway toward the Mets' clubhouse, followed by several teammates.

Once he was out of sight, fans chanted "Thank you, David!"

Wright was reinstated from the disabled list Tuesday and finally made it back into a big league game Friday night as a pinch-hitter. He grounded out on the only pitch he saw in his first plate appearance in nearly 2½ years, then batted third in a ceremonial start Saturday that was in the works for weeks.

With family and friends on hand, the seven-time All-Star crouched behind home plate to scoop up an honorary first ball tossed by the oldest of his two daughters, 2-year-old Olivia, who wore a Lil Wright jersey with his No. 5 on the back.

Highlights of Wright's career played on the ballpark video board just before the first pitch. He bounded out to third base alone, followed by longtime teammate and buddy Jose Reyes, who started alongside Wright at shortstop for the first time since Sept. 28, 2011.

The pair embraced several times on the field and soaked in applause during their 878th start together, most by any two players in team history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Tugging at heartstrings all night, the Mets accompanied a video montage of Wright's finale with the musical theme from "The Natural" a few innings later.

Reyes doubled leading off the first and reached third on Jeff McNeil's sacrifice bunt, setting up an RBI opportunity for Wright. With the Marlins playing their infield in, Wright fouled off a 91 mph fastball and drew a full-count walk from rookie pitcher Trevor Richards.

Wright was immediately erased on a double play. He fouled out on the second pitch he saw leading off the fourth, with first baseman Peter O'Brien making a not-so-easy catch near the retaining wall that turned him into the target of boisterous boos the rest of the game.

Still grinning a bit, a disappointed Wright walked slowly back to the dugout.

Wright's big night was big news in New York City, where Mayor Bill de Blasio in a morning tweet proclaimed it David Wright Day "in honor of (hashtag)OurCaptain."

SNY, the television home of the Mets, programmed Wright highlights, interviews and features that ran all day beginning at 10 a.m.

Even the crosstown rival Yankees took out a full-page ad Friday in the New York Post congratulating Wright on "a distinguished career."

The Citi Field gates opened early at 4:30 p.m. so fans could watch Wright and the Mets take batting practice. The star of the show knocked a few balls over the fence, waved to the crowd and signed autographs.

The club's career leader in hits, RBIs, runs and several other categories, Wright for years has been the face of the franchise - and sometimes its most visible spokesman - for a team that often sorely needed the positive image he always portrayed.

If there's ever been a Mr. Met without the big head, David Wright is it.

"His grind just to get back to this spot has been unbelievable - and most people wouldn't do it," manager Mickey Callaway said. "He chose to do the right thing every single day. ... We're doing something special for David, not because of the numbers he put up, but because of the person he is."

Former teammates Michael Cuddyer and Cliff Floyd, two of Wright's best friends in baseball, came out for the festivities. Plans included a postgame ceremony on the field, with Wright expected to address the crowd, prior to the pre-scheduled fireworks.

Over in the opposing dugout was this neat full-circle connection: Marlins catching coach Brian Schneider was behind the plate with the Montreal Expos for Wright's first at-bat on July 21, 2004, and recalled tumbling head over heels at the dugout railing to make an acrobatic grab of Wright's foul popup.

Asked if he would instruct Richards to groove a pitch to Wright, Marlins manager Don Mattingly cracked: "That young kid of ours? He may groove one by mistake. He won't try to groove one."
