More Snow to Affect NJ this Week
The snow is not over yet as New Jersey is expecting more snow tonight and potentially another storm this weekend.
Parts of New Jersey may see some form of precipitation as early as this afternoon. Southern parts of New Jersey will see rain at first, and then transition to snow. Northern parts of New Jersey will primarily be seeing all snow. This snow storm will not be as strong as the snow storm we experienced last week.
According to the National Weather Service, the heaviest snow in New Jersey is expected to be in central and northern New Jersey. It all comes down to the track of the storm to see who gets the greatest accumulation of snow. Snow bands, which are just bands of heavy snow, may come into play and affect northern parts of New Jersey. This may give them a higher than expected snowfall total.
As of now, southern New Jersey is expected to get a coating to an inch of snow. Northern New Jersey is expected to get 1 to 3 inches of snow. Central New Jersey is expected to get 2 to 4 inches of snow.
Meteorologists are keeping an eye on the potential snow storm that is expected to affect the Northeast later this week.
The NAM and GFS models are forecasting the storm to be offshore. While the Euro model is forecasting the storm to track a little further west and potentially affecting our area. If the trough in the 500 millibar map is a little west of what it is forecast to be, then the weekend storm can potentially affect our area.
