A snowy morning commute in New Jersey Friday
Snow squalls reduced visibility and made for some sloppy roads Friday morning, just in time for early commuters.
Sick of winter yet? (Only 70 days until the first day of Spring.)
This morning, Mother Nature is dealing us a double blow of cold temperatures and snow. The radar is trending toward bringing at least some snow to everyone in New Jersey, and the heavier squalls could dramatically reduce visibilities and make roadways slippery.
Upwards of an inch of new snow accumulation will be possible. The good news is that this line of snow is moving quickly, so skies should start to clear by late morning.
Meanwhile, we’ll be riding a roller coaster of (mostly cold) temperatures through this weekend. Today will be in the mid 30s. Tomorrow will be cold again, as we only top out in the 20s. Then warmer again on Sunday. Even warmer on Monday, potentially reaching 40 degrees.
Next storm system of significance will come on Monday. Right now, it’s too soon to tell whether temperatures will be more conducive to rain or snow, so we’ll call it a wintry mix for now. Current models don’t show much moisture with this one - I expect less than 0.25” of rain and/or less than 2 inches of snow on Monday from this system.
