Weather Alert


  Bogota Blog NJ along with Bogota Beautiful is starting a drive to collect gift cards in order to help the Citizens of Edgewater, NJ. With the assistance of Bogota Mayor Chris Keleman there will be a collection box located in Borough Hall in the secretary's office.  The secretary's office will be open during normal business hours which  are from Monday to Thursday from 8:00a to 5:00p. Bogota Borough Hall is located at 375 Larch Ave. Bogota, NJ

The Bogota Office of Emergency Management has issued the following weather alert:

Prepare for extreme cold temperatures and low wind chills through Friday followed by an increasing chance of prolonged wintry precipitation Saturday Night through Tuesday.

An arctic high pressure system will move east across the area through tonight then move offshore late Friday causing temperatures to average 15 to 20 degrees below normal.

The forecast through Friday:
Tonight: Low temperatures generally from 0 degrees inland to 10 degrees above zero along the coast. Wind chills will range from 0 to 10 degrees below zero.  A Special Weather Statement is in effect for NYC from late tonight until 10 am Friday for wind chills of 0 to 5 degrees below.
Friday:  High temperatures are forecast to range from 20 to 25 degrees.

The forecast this weekend:
            Prepare for a “potentially” long unsettled weather pattern developing.  

After a brief warm up  before another arctic cold front moves southeast across the region Saturday night, forecast models indicate a series of weak low pressure waves developing along this front and moving toward the area.  Because there is a large spread in the model forecast solutions, the extended outlook is HIGHLY UNCERTAIN.

There is less than a 30 percent chance of a prolonged snow event that could meet our 24 hour warning criteria of 8 inches (as opposed to our 12 hour criteria of 6 inches), mainly from Sunday through Tuesday.  Timing the individual low tracks, their intensities and proximity to our coast is “Difficult” at this time and would lead to a variety of precipitation types including freezing rain, sleet, or plain rain.

Because weather changes, Stay Tuned to your latest NWS forecasts.

If the forecast model spread decreases, we would begin issuing electronic presentations around 4 pm on Friday afternoon to help you prepare during the weekend.
Stay tuned to your latest NWS forecasts.
