Video from the new Euro run and a flashback to the Arctic blast 3 years ago:
This video from the Euro goes from 7 PM Wednesday to 7 AM on New Year's Day.
Do you remember the Arctic blast from 3 years ago? This is the forecast for Long Island that I posted 3 years ago today:
Snow and extreme cold in the forecast:
1. Today: 20 degrees with 20 mph winds! 8 to 12 degrees tonight.
2. Friday: Cloudy with a flurry possible. Highs in the low 20's.
3. Saturday: Snow showers developing in the early to mid afternoon and ending in the evening. As much as 2 or 3 inches are possible in extreme eastern Suffolk, otherwise generally an inch or so for Long Island.
4. New Year's Eve: Highs in the upper teens and dropping to 9 degrees at midnight and breezy. Morning low of 6 degrees on New Year's Day.
5. New Year's Day: Sunny, breezy, and frigid with highs in the upper teens.
6. Snowstorm potential for late Wednesday night into Thursday afternoon. The Euro is showing 12 to 20 inches of snow from Queens westward and northward (see image below). Too early to tell specifics though as it will be track dependent. The GFS keeps the storm mostly offshore, but it has an offshore bias.
7. Another Arctic blast behind the storm for next Thursday night to Sunday morning.
