NYC Wild Weather Week

We like to call them the grey days of Winter, but it is still Autumn, when the leaves Fall and the skies have not turned gray  just jet.

By the way, did you know that Gray and Grey are both common spellings of the color between black and white. Gray is more frequent in American English, whereas grey is more common in British English.

The weekend started out with rain near the coast but a wintry mix of rain, sleet, snow, and at times freezing rain, for the interior within our forecast region.

Saturday was much cooler than the previous day. Across the interior, less than 1 inch of snow and less than a tenth of an inch of ice fell.

The temperatures dropped from 63 to 36 and that is the wild part. Sunday was colder but without precipitation.
