Weather with Don Thompson

Good Friday evening. What a cold day today. In the next 7 days you will have to get used to it. The tight pressure gradient thanks to cold arctic high pressure brought the cold air in. Tonight we will see clear skies start the evening then increasing clouds tonight with lows in the mid teens. The winds will calm down some as the tight pressure gradient relaxes. We have a low pressure system moving from the Great lakes to New England. There is a Winter Weather advisory in affect tomorrow for most of Long Island except for Southeastern Suffolk County.The Advisory does include the North Fork. We will see some snow develop tomorrow that will mix with some rain with highs in the upper 30's.We could see an inch of snow but 2-3 inches in the advisory areas and we will keep tracking this snow. Tomorrow night the rain will taper off with temperatures rising to the lower 40's. Sunday we will see sunny skies with another shot of cold air moving in with temperatures dropping to the lower 30's by the end of the day. Cold high pressure has control for most of the week with highs not making above the freezing mark till maybe Thursday where it could get to a toasty 35 degrees and possibly near 40 on Friday. I thought it would be fun to look back at past winters snow totals and today we will look at the winter of 1949-1950. We actually saw a half of an inch of snow in November followed by 3 inches in December . Only a trace of snow in January. February saw 10.5 inches with 6.3 inches in March. April was a bit of a surprise with 3.5 inches of snow. The grand total was 23.8 inches for the winter of 1949-1950. We will continue to track the weekend weather. Have a great and safe day and please bundle up in layers for the cold air.
