Up to 18 inches of global warming to dump on NYC

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard watch – yes, a blizzard watch! – for New York City. Up to 18 inches of snow could fall on Central Park.

National Weather Service New York NY
412 PM EDT Sun Mar 12 2017


* Locations…New York City, Long Island, Southern Westchester, Southern Fairfield, Southern New Haven, Middlesex, and New London counties.

* Hazard Types…Heavy Snow and Blizzard Conditions.

* Snow Accumulations…12 to 18 inches.

* Impacts…Dangerous travel and potential for power outages.
Damaging wind gusts possible across eastern Long Island and extreme southeastern Connecticut.

* Winds Northeast 20 to 30 mph with gusts 40 to 50 mph.
* Temperatures…In the upper 20s.

* Visibilities…One quarter mile or less at times.


A Blizzard Watch means there is a potential for falling and/or blowing snow with strong winds and extremely poor visibilities. This can lead to whiteout conditions and make travel very dangerous.

Other areas, including the lower Hudson Valley and northeastern New Jersey, also could get 12 to 18 inches of snow.

  1. They can have it. I’m hoping it gets shunted out to sea before it gets north to New Hampshire, but we currently forecast to get a foot.

    By the way, if you hear anyone attempting to spin this into a side-effect of Global Warming, remind them that the “Blizzard of 1888” hit NYC after a mild winter, and gave them four feet between Match 11 and March 14,

    • No one drives in New York, they take pollution spewing taxis driven by terrorists, if you doubt the terrorism angle, get in a NYC taxi and tell him to hurry.

  2. The next ice age is already here! Unless people are really stupid or suffer from a hard case of amnesia, I hope people remember that we recently had 3 feet of snow in the Sahara desert, 6 feet of snow in the Greek Islands and southern beaches of Italy and record snowfall in Saudi Arabia and Algeria! The Danube River in Europe froze back In January and Squaw Valley had over 24 feet of snow ! Remember???????
    I sure hope so!

    Look up the past facts please!!

    • as I look out on an early spring with daffodils a month ahead, weeds growing. maple seeds sprouting, grass growing. Here in the Scottish Highlands. Depends where your ice age or global warming is relative to your doorstep.

      • Where I am living at the moment, the snowdrops came a bit late this year, but the daffodils were right on time. Actually, some daffodils come into flower as early as February. So I wouldn’t use these flowers as an indicator of global warming or global cooling. And if you live in a big city, the UHIE will probably be responsible for early flowering.

    • Forgot to mention that they had to pay lip service to the AGW brigade by saying that last month was the 2nd warmest February on record since record-keeping began’.
