Our present “good-feel” weather is in danger as the temperatures start to fall and the leaves start to change.
The good news is that, according to AccuWeather, NYC won’t receive as much snow as it typically does, which is around 30 inches. According to the weather service, between 18 and 23 inches of snow are predicted, which is comparable to the 17.8 inches of snow that fell throughout last year, as first reported by Thrillist.
According to AccuWeather, the snow will likely fall for roughly six to nine days.
New York City will also be warmer overall.
Weather patterns across the United States will be impacted, according to forecasters, by a “triple dip La Nia,” or the third La Nia in a row (a weather phenomenon that blows cool water at the ocean’s surface).
However, Australia saw a volcanic explosion earlier this year that will also have an impact on our weather. According to the website, the eruption was so strong that it transmitted shockwaves throughout the globe and increased the amount of water vapor in the stratosphere by about 5%.
As a result of the warmer air being held behind the water vapour, this winter will probably be warmer than typical. In the fall and winter, the weather site predicts that NYC will experience temperatures that are 2 to 3 degrees warmer.
If you’re a snow enthusiast, you might be dissatisfied with the snowfall totals in NYC this winter, but worry not, AccuWeather says improved skiing conditions are expected in New York and throughout New England, where heavier snowfall is forecast to occur more frequently.
The rest of us will take pleasure in the gentler winter conditions and the sporadic snowfall!
