Heavy Snow Looms: Alan’s Weather Blog
The weekend forecast worked out pretty well.
Saturday had some areas of snow and snow showers in the northwestern counties that produced a coating up there. It was mostly rain along parts of the shore with some sleet mixed in for a brief time early Saturday morning.
Temperatures were mostly in the 30s on Saturday, as expected.
On Sunday, it reached 45 in Atlantic City, but only in the upper 30s in Newark and Trenton, which is about where it should be for this time of the year.
Well, we have a snow storm on the way. The question is, how much?
Not today, though. Today, we will have clouds with some sunshine in the 40s to maybe 50.
Then, Arctic air comes in at the same time that the storm system starts forming along the East Coast. That leads to the likelihood of snow developing late morning or early afternoon tomorrow through the first part of tomorrow night. As little as 2 to 4 inches on the bottom to as much as 4 to 8 inches at the top side of this.
Central and South Jersey will probably receive the most snow. It's going to be pretty cold and windy tomorrow. Temperatures will not be out of the 20s to even some teens for high temperatures in NW Jersey on Tuesday.
Many of us will not be out of the cold, frigid teens on Wednesday. But, sunshine will return then.
