Dear NYC OEM Community Partners,
You are receiving this message due to your ties to the NYC Jewish Community. Tomorrow, New York City is expecting a forecast of high winds and rain.
We encourage you to reach out to your partners in the Jewish community as many of their members have erected Sukkahs in celebration of the holiday. With the expected forecast, there is a risk that the structures built for the holiday may be compromised. We encourage individuals and organizations to take the needed steps to secure outdoor objects, including Sukkahs that could blow away and cause damage or injury.
Intensifying low pressure will track up the east coast and towards the region Tuesday night...gradually working through the area Wednesday into Wednesday night. Although there is still some uncertainty in the exact track and intensity of this storm...the potential for 1 inch of wind swept rain on Wednesday is possible. The axis of heaviest precipitation has shifted east of the City, thus reducing the previously forecasted rain amounts. However a 50 to 100 mile shift back to the west would bring precipitation amounts back up. Rain should taper off by midnight with gusty conditions expected Thursday as the system exits the area.
And how was it?
From SW at 16mph gusting to 29mph
Through 10pm: Partly cloudy. Windy early. Temperatures falling into the mid 50s. Winds SSW at 15 to 20 mph.
