Weekly Weather: Remnants of Ian Part II Continue to Bring us Wind and Rain
By: Yaker Biegeleisen
Following Shabbos, where we received a large amount of rain and wind due to the remnants of Hurricane Ian, the storm will continue to hover over the New York City area for the earlier part of this week.
While we received part one of the storm, which had separated into two, we are now getting the remnants of the second part of the storm. The system remains trapped over our area due to a high pressure system to the north which is not allowing the storm to leave.
This will mean continued cool temperatures, and rain and wind on-and-off between Sunday and Tuesday, erev Yom Kippur--until a cold front will push it out to the ocean.
By Wednesday, Yom Kippur, the storm is expected to have cleared out of the area, and it will be replaced with a polar cold front, straight from the arctic (some wind will remain).
This will bring us clear conditions, but unseasonably cold temps for this time of year. As we stand now, we expect a colder than normal Sukkos due to this cold front. Temps for the end of the week will be in the 50's and low 60's during the daytime, and dropping into the low forties at night.
