Snow in Newark. Click to enlargeThe New York and New Jersey area's first accumulation of snow this season happened this morning, creating a beautiful white cover over the homes and streets around my apartment. With virtually no wind and a pleasant 25- to 34-degree range of temperatures throughout the afternoon, today has culminated a relaxing first weekend of December.
Of course, tomorrow, that will all change. The National Weather Service made the following statement at 4:18 PM this afternoon.
The Wind Advisory is now in effect from 1 PM Monday to 3 am EST Tuesday.
West to northwest winds 10 to 20 mph Monday morning will increase to 25 to 35 mph with gusts in excess of 50 mph by midday Monday in the wake of rapidly deepening low pressure. These strong winds will continue into Monday night... before the sustained winds and strongest gusts begin to weaken.
Wonderful. I'm almost shivering, just reading that.
