Nor’easter To NJ: From The Newsroom
Our coastal storm is on track to bring us a wintry mess today and tonight.
Now, it’ll be mainly rain in Southern and parts of Central Jersey much of the day, snow or a wintry mix in NW counties only; 30s there and some 40s elsewhere. But, a changeover to snow seems likely either this evening or early tonight with high winds.
Snow, heavy at times, and blowing and drifting snow with lows tonight in the mid 20s to low 30s.
Now, I should, before I go any further, mention the threat of coastal flooding. It looks like it will be minor coastal flooding at the time of high tide after 6PM this evening. Moderate coastal flooding tomorrow morning between 6:15 and 6:30. But, with winds coming from the Northwest overnight, I’m not exactly sure that is going to be the case. I’ll side with the Weather Service on this one, though.
By the time it ends early tomorrow, final snowfall totals of 6-10 inches with a few higher amounts possible in Central and North Jersey, 4 to 8 inches in parts of Ocean and Burlington Counties, but much, much less farther south.
We’ll have some sunshine returning after early snow ends tomorrow and very windy. Winds will be gusting later today, tonight and tomorrow up to 40 and 50 miles per hour.
Sunshine, but colder 30s for Sunday.
