Cooler temperatures locally as Northeast gets hammered again

RECOMMENDED READING


Tampa Bay residents awoke Thursday to the coolest temperatures in months, but the beleaguered Northeast was feeling it much worse.

While temperatures locally dipped into the 50s and 40s overnight, parts of the Northeast were dealing with as much as 12 inches of snow.

In areas hardest hit by Superstorm Standy, a nor'easter left a blanket of snow that snapped storm-weakened trees and downed power lines.

In New Jersey, utilities reported 400,000 power outages early Thursday; 20,000 of those were new.

In New York City and Westchester, more than 70,000 customers were without power after the storm knocked out an additional 55,000 customers. There were 60,000 new outages on Long Island, where more than 200,000 customers without power.

The nor'easter, as promised, brought gusting winds, rain and snow, but so far not the flooding that was anticipated.

As the Northeast digs out, the Tampa Bay area is poised for patchy frost and cooler temperatures through the week.

Temperatures were forecast to climb into the 60s by Thursday afternoon, said Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez, but cooler weather will return by the evening.

Even chillier conditions were expected Friday morning, with lows in the 40s and possibly the 30s in parts of Hernando and Citrus counties.

By Friday afternoon, temperatures may rise into the 70s, Marquez said.

Thereafter, temperatures should gradually warm into the high 70s or low 80s over the weekend.
