STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — While New York City won’t experience a severe weather system leading up to Thanksgiving, it could prove to be a difficult journey of stormy conditions, rain, and even snow for many who are traveling in the Northeast.
Gov. Kathy Hochulof a massive storm expected to hit New York State during the peak holiday travel from Wednesday into Thursday. Freezing rain, snow accumulations, and high winds could impact travel plans.
AccuWeather meteorologists believe that the greatest negative travel impacts associated with the oncoming storm will be from Tuesday to Wednesday in the Northeast.
“The stiff east-to-southeast winds averaging 25-35 mph with gusts of 40-45 mph can pose a problem at some of the airports from, to and with the worst conditions likely from late Tuesday afternoon to Tuesday evening,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Tom Kines said.
That means travelers should expect airline delays at this time, most likely due to winds, drenching rain, and poor visibility. These same conditions will also make for miserable travel on the roads on Tuesday for the Northeast region — though the heaviest rain may hold off until late Tuesday afternoon in New York City.
Motorists should expect delays due to this storm, and with the combined high volume of traffic anticipated, any mishap or ponding on some highways can lead to major delays and potentially miles of stopped vehicles, according to AccuWeather.
This means that rain can be expected for New York City Tuesday and Wednesday, with high temperatures of 46 and 54 respectively. Areas of upstate New York should instead expect snowy weather.
Conditions should improve by Wednesday evening. The busiest travel time on Wednesday is expected between 2 – 6 p.m. as listed by.
And you won’t have to worry about traveling on Thursday, as most of the nation will be dry, with little precipitation expected in New York City and much of the surrounding area.
The mercury will reach a high of 51 degrees on Thanksgiving Day in New York City.
According to AAA,from home over the Thanksgiving holiday, defined as Wednesday, Nov. 22, to Sunday, Nov. 26, marking the third-highest Thanksgiving travel volume in more than 20 years.
If necessary, the governor will be sending out reverse cell phone alerts to deeply affected areas to make sure everyone’s ready, as done in the past during catastrophic snowstorms.
Just last year during Thanksgiving week, Buffalo was hit with a historic snowstorm,. In 2014, Buffalo was hit with its worst storm, when seven feet of snow accumulated over the course of three days.
For now, New York City can keep shovels and snow gear tucked away a little bit longer.
