Weather Update


 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 update.

Forecast confidence continues to increase for a Heavy Precipitation Event, mainly between 1 am and 1 pm on Monday, February 2.  Temperatures will be cold enough for all precipitation to start and end as snow across the area.

Here’s what we know:  The latest forecast models continue to trend north with the track forecast.  They show a stronger low moving east across the Ohio Valley Sunday night.  This would cause warmer air aloft to wrap around this system, causing snow to change to sleet, freezing rain or plain rain during the morning rush hour mainly from the NYC Metro area east across Long Island, including Metro New Jersey.  Because precipitation is forecast to change back to snow with subfreezing temperatures, a Winter Storm Watch remains in effect for this area from 7 pm Sunday through 6 pm Monday.

Here’s what we don’t know:  Because of growing differences in the track and intensity forecasts, including timing, we don’t  know how long the mixed precipitation will last across the coast during the day on  Monday before changing back to snow later in the afternoon.  Stay Tuned.

Because we are confident that most precipitation will be in the form of snow across our far western and northern suburbs, the Winter Storm Watch was upgraded to a Winter Storm warning for these areas from Western Passaic and Western Bergen Counties, NJ east across the Lower Hudson Valley and most of Southern Connecticut.

Stay tuned to your latest NWS forecasts.
