Should we be worried that Hurricane Florence, a Category 4 storm, will hit New York? The short answer: probably not. “That is extremely unlikely,” said Joel Cline, a meteorologist at the National Hurricane Center. “At least not as a hurricane or a tropical storm.” [For more on Hurricane Florence, follow The New York Times live updates here .] The center’s models predict that the hurricane will make landfall in the Carolinas on Friday.

Old Man Winter may have a parting gift for the city: more snow. The forecast for Friday — officially the first day of spring — calls for several more inches of the white stuff that’s plagued the city for the past several months. Temperatures will hover in the low 30s during the day, as clouds move in and the flakes start falling, according to AccuWeather. Three to 5 inches will likely accumulate, but the snow will taper off by night. The skies will remain cloudy, however, and temps will stay in the 30s — or even lower. A late-season blast of cold air from Canada could delay the start of spring temps across the Northeast, forecasters said. If the cold front really takes hold, the thermometer may even deep into the teens — the kind of frigid temps the city saw in early March.

"It's pretty hard to not understand something's going on, very worrisome and scary, on this planet. "The planet is changing, and we have to do what we can to make sure we can accommodate it," he added. "Did we, 10 years ago, think about water rising? "Only a few people talked about it, and it was considered a communist plot. So by that standard, I suppose we have made some progress." Academic experts and insurance executives on the panel concluded that average temperatures could rise up to 7.5 degrees by 2080, rainfall could increase by 10% and sea levels will rise two feet. Some studies predict the polar ice caps will melt much more quickly, which could raise New … [Read more...] about New York only to get hotter, rainier and more flood-prone, say scientists
Hey New York, brace yourselves for a blast from the wintery past. Forecasters say we're likely to be hit with one of those old fashioned winters with freezing temperatures and plenty of snow that you'll be able to tell your grandchildren about - not the wussy winters we've had in recent years. "It may be a shock to some when compared with the above-average temperatures of last year in the East," said Joe Bastardi, the chief long-range forecaster at AccuWeather.com. "It will put some 'brrrrrr' in the saddle of folks who have not had to deal with such things for a while." Blame the brrrrrr on the core of cold that visited misery on the Midwest last year - and is now heading for our neck of America, Bastardi said. RELATED: FIND THE LATEST WEATHER INFO"In the eastern half of the nation, people will look at the winter as bookends of cold," Bastardi said Wednesday. December could be the most brutal month of winter followed by a "January thaw of old winter lore," he said. Then … [Read more...] about Forecasters predict harsh winter for New York City
