Snow Squalls Expected for Halloween in New York State
We're less than one month away from Halloween. November 1st will be next Wednesday and it's hard to believe that October is almost over.
It's been a mixed mag in terms of the weather for the last three weeks. We started with very warm temperatures, but recently had very cold temperatures this past week/weekend. For the next three days, New York State will see above average temperatures (over 70 degrees).
By the time we get to this upcoming Monday, however, things will change in a dramatic way.
There's a cold front that will sweep through New York State and it will bring arctic air. This means temperatures will be dropping 30+ degrees by this time next week.
The Weather Channel forecasts high temperatures to be anywhere from 38-46 degrees for Halloween day in New York State. For those who live in the southern tier or far upstate, there is even the risk for accumulating snow and believe it or not, snow squalls.
Here's the latest GFS model update on the snow potential for New York State this upcoming Tuesday, which happens to be Halloween.
This weather change looks to be for the most part, permanent. That's at least for the next several months. The temperatures look to stay in the 40's or 50's for highs in early November, with low temperatures dipping down to the mid-30's by the first week of November.
This will be one of the coldest Halloweens in recent memory. The hope is the snow doesn't amount to much for the trick-or-treaters, but it's a safe bet to bring jackets just in case.
It won't be long before we have that first lake effect snowstorm.
