Since 1 AM today, heavy rain and gusty winds has made up the conditions we see in tropical storms. Gusty winds reaching 40+ mph mixed with the heavy rain has been the problem all day today, especially in the morning rush hours for those getting to places around here.
Remember that roads become slippery, especially when rain first start to fall, leading to treacherous driving condition. Stay cautioned and drive slow. 10 mph slower than what's posted in the sign along the road it's the law here in CT.
2 days ago we reached temperatures nearly 80 F, now it's juts like of nothing happened, back to the chilly upper 40s and lower 40s not including the strong winds knocking those down by 5-10 degrees.
Right now in my area the temperature is 40F but the winds make 33F.
A wind advisory is in effect until early this afternoon for coastal locations along CT and all Long Island.
747 AM EDT FRI APR 12 2013
...WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 2 PM EDT THIS AFTERNOON...
* LOCATIONS...COASTAL CONNECTICUT AND LONG ISLAND.
* HAZARDS...STRONG WINDS.
* WINDS...EAST 15 TO 25 MPH WITH GUSTS UP TO 45 MPH.
* TIMING...THE STRONGEST WINDS WILL OCCUR THROUGH LATE MORNING.
* IMPACTS...THESE WINDS COULD BRING DOWN TREE BRANCHES AND LIMBS.
DRIVING MAY BE DIFFICULT...ESPECIALLY ON ELEVATED ROADS AND
BRIDGES FOR HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES.
Also some localized coastal (minor) flooding is possible in the low terrains, be on alert!
The rain is coming to an end as well for the Greater NYC area.
Take a look at the "pink" color above, some mix is expected far in the interior New England. High terrains in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine could get over half a foot of snow from Walda!
Note: We are expecting nearly 2" of rain from this passing storm, some places inland could get flooding from accumulating water, please know your surroundings. The ground remains mostly dry and won't get to suck up the water as fast as it comes from the sky, so some runoff is likely.
This rain, though, is very beneficial for the trees as we enter the transition into springing trees, plants and all vegetation. Just give it a little more time.
For the weekend, dry weather, temps rising around 60 with chilly night temps in upper 30s...cooler to the north/interior and warmer to the south of NYC.
HURRICANE SEASON CHART expect an update tomorrow in my upcoming Saturday Blog.
The closing is August 1.
CSU issued their forecast outlook, will be reflected in my chart as well, but won't we counted to the total add-ons. TWC/WSI, CSU and TSR are placed at the bottom...so take a look tomorrow.
Im still looking for new bloggers wanting to be included...spread the word!
Let Spring spring. Enjoy these times!
Stay clean and be nice.
