Likely to put a damper on this weekend's Mulchfest activities, a Winter Storm Watch is in effect from Saturday morning through Sunday morning for the NYC Metropolitan area. Snow will be greater the more north you are, but we'll still have enough to shovel here in Brooklyn:
SNOW IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP OVER WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE FORECASTUpdate: I chatted with "Prospect Park" on Facebook and confirmed that they're still on for tomorrow:
AREA BEGINNING EARLY SATURDAY MORNING BEFORE SPREADING FROM WEST
TO EAST THROUGHOUT THE DAY. SNOW WILL THEN CONTINUE TO FALL
THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT AND MAY BECOME HEAVY AT TIMES...ESPECIALLY
ACROSS THE LOWER HUDSON VALLEY AND INTERIOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN
DEPENDING ON THE TRACK OF THE LOW...SOME SLEET MAY MIX WITH THE
SNOW...ESPECIALLY ACROSS NEW YORK CITY AND SURROUNDING COASTAL
LOCATIONS. THIS WILL HELP LIMIT SNOW ACCUMULATIONS.
TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS FROM THIS SYSTEM WILL RANGE FROM 6 TO 8
INCHES ACROSS THE LOWER HUDSON VALLEY AND INTERIOR CONNECTICUT...
AND FROM 5 TO 7 INCHES ACROSS NEW YORK CITY...WESTCHESTER COUNTY
AND COASTAL PORTIONS OF NORTHEAST NEW JERSEY.
FG: Mulchfest still on despite winter storm watch?
PP: so far, yes! if the weather turns extreme and they do have to scale back the event, we will post on our homepage, www.prospectpark.org. Seems unlikely though.
FG: Thanks! I plan to dress for the weather and hope to be there. At Park Circle location
