What we are expecting from Winter Storm Harper:
The National Weather Service (NWS) is forecasting a large regional winter storm and expecting three phases; conditions and timing vary, but of the various models and forecasts the common theme is,
Phase 1: light snow starts tonight after midnight, through the Friday morning commute. Snow totals should not exceed 2” to 3” of light precipitation. Then dry air moves in until Saturday, late afternoon.
Phase 2: a mix of snow, ice, sleet, and freezing rain will fall with accumulations ranging from 6” to 12”, depending on several factors too numerous to list here. It looks like it will start around 4:00 p.m. Saturday late afternoon, and continue through Sunday Morning.
Phase 3: The temperature will drop to dangerously low levels very quickly Sunday afternoon. It should drop from around 20°F to 0°F with no wind. The wind is expected to increase dramatically in the afternoon, gusting around 30 MPH, causing wind-chill to approach -20°F.
Reminder: There is NO PARKING on village streets during snowfall. Your cooperation allows the Maybrook DPW to plow the roads safely and expeditiously for emergency vehicles and first responders.
Prepare for the worst and hope for the best!
Be Safe and Thank You!
