Wednesday's parting shot

Right before the heavy rain moved into the area this evening... all sorts of warnings tonight from the remnants of Ida — a Severe Thunderstorm Warning until 10:30 ... Flash Flood Warning until 11:30. 

And Hitchcocktober returns to 12th Street and Second Avenue!

Regarding Henri

We're officially on storm watch, as this random photo from First Avenue and Sixth Street doesn't really show. 

As of 11 a.m., Henri is now a hurricane, and warnings have been issued for parts of Long Island, Connecticut and Rhode Island... In NYC, we're under a tropical storm warning... with strong winds and heavy rains arriving overnight... Gothamist has a nice recap of all this here

How can I really be expected to post today when New York will be a snowy, freezing hell this weekend?

Thank you New York Post for that headline.

And what the paper reports about the weather possibilities:

A fast-moving storm will dump an inch of snow an hour on the city starting at 6 p.m. Saturday and possibly into Sunday, when rain — and then an arctic blast — will turn the Big Apple into a treacherous tundra.

Flakes will fall “hard and quick” before turning to rain sometime between midnight and 3 a.m. Sunday, meteorologists said.

And another take with illustrations...

The area is currently under a Winter Weather Watch. There is a 90 percent chance of unbridled media hysteria and random grocery purchases.

NYC Emergency Management has issued a hazardous travel advisory for Tuesday

Via the EVG inbox this evening...

The New York City Emergency Management Department today issued a hazardous travel advisory for Tuesday, March, 14. The National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Watch in effect from late Monday night through late Tuesday night. A nor’easter is forecast to bring heavy snow along with strong and potentially damaging winds that will create hazardous travel conditions on Tuesday.

“We’re preparing for a significant storm on Tuesday, and New Yorkers should also prepare for snow and dangerous road conditions,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “Besides the snow, it will be cold. We urge you to avoid unnecessary travel and help keep roads clear for Sanitation crews and first responders.”

“Heavy snow will make travel difficult on Tuesday. New Yorkers should avoid driving and use mass transit when possible,” said NYC Emergency Management Commissioner Joseph Esposito. “We are working closely with our agency partners to coordinate the City’s preparations for the storm.”

A low pressure system develops off of the Carolina coastline Monday before making its way up the East Coast late Monday night. According to the latest forecast, light snow is expected to begin late Monday night, and will intensify overnight into early Tuesday morning. The heaviest snowfall is expected Tuesday morning through the afternoon, with rates as much as 2 to 4 inches per hour possible. Strong winds are expected to accompany the heavy snowfall, with wind speeds 20 – 30 mph, and gusts 35 – 50 mph, creating hazardous travel conditions. The snowfall is expected to taper off Tuesday evening. A total accumulation of 12 to 18 inches is anticipated, but locally higher amounts are possible. New Yorkers should avoid driving and use mass transit where possible on Tuesday.

And in case you are playing NYC weather trivia...
