More Snow on the Way for NJ?

There is another possibility of snow for our area this weekend.

A low pressure system will move over the Great Lakes on Friday into Friday night and give our area some precipitation.

Another low pressure system will form over the Carolinas, and will move northward into our area Saturday into Sunday.

What Models Are Saying

Earlier this week, the EURO model had a snowstorm affecting eastern Pennsylvania, central and northern New Jersey and New York City. The latest runs of the EURO model looked more like the GFS model.

It seems to be a storm that will have a greater impact in New England than New Jersey, mainly giving our area some rain.

Judging from the 850 millibar map, it seems to be too warm for any significant snowfall to accumulate. The 0 degree isotherm, which is usually the snow-rain line, is north of New Jersey until 7 a.m. on Sunday. If this 850 millibar forecast is true, then any precipitation that falls before 7 a.m. will most likely be rain or sleet.

According to the National Weather Service, there is only a chance of rain or snow Friday night into Saturday and rain likely on Saturday night.  Also, temperatures will be above freezing for most of the weekend.

The Climate Prediction Center’s 3 to 7 day U.S. Hazards Outlook has parts of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island under heavy snow this Sunday.
