1" of snow in Stewartsville, NJ on December 30, 2018

1″ of snow in Stewartsville, NJ on December 30, 2018

We’re back in the freezer after some light snowfall on Saturday. High temperatures today should be in the mid to upper teens.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Anyone venturing into New York City to see the ball drop will be experiencing the second coldest NYE on record. Even if you are not going into the city today it will be very cold and breezy so bundle up and be safe!

We may “warm up” to the upper 20’s mid week then all eyes turn to a storm that will be mostly staying off shore as it looks right now. Will it trend further to the west and impact us Thursday? We’ll keep an eye on it.

Once that storm passes, it looks to usher in EVEN COLDER AIR that what we’ve experienced so far this winter!

As you wake up this Saturday morning you will find light snow falling in western New Jersey with temperatures in the mid teens.

NWS Snow forecast

NWS Snow forecast

As seen in the radar above, the heaviest bands of snow appear to be setting up to our south. As a result those locations could see up to 3″ of snow. The rest of the area should see up to 2″ of light snow.

The NWS has issued a winter weather advisory for areas to our south.

The light snow should let up by early afternoon. Then we should see some flurries or perhaps some snow showers this afternoon. Then more bitter cold air returns after our “balmy” day today…

NWS forecast for snow on Saturday

NWS forecast for snow on Saturday

Still cold out but at least the wind is not as strong. As of right now we’re at the high temperature for yesterday and it’s only 1:30 pm so hopefully we’ll get in the low to mid 20’s.

Periods of light snow should arrive just after daybreak on Saturday and move in from SW to NE. I still believe we are going to receive a coasting to 2″ overall in western New Jersey. Recent computer guidance is suggesting the “heaviest” band will be from NW to SE across western NJ.

Something to keep in mind is it will be in the mid to upper 20’s tomorrow during the snow so our snow ratio will be higher. This will make the snow lighter and fluffier. Usually snow like that accumulates more (but also compacts down more too)

NWS snow forecast for Saturday

NWS snow forecast for Saturday

This cold weather period has been quite impressive. Most areas of western New Jersey did not get out of the teens for high temperatures today! Furthermore the New Year Eve weather looks to be the coldest since the 1960’s!

The cold weather looks to remain at least for another week. The only positive note is there will be times when it won’t be as windy which should make it *feel* warmer at least. Tomorrow, Friday is one of those less windy days.

Saturday doesn’t look too wind either. But we should have some periods of light snow to deal with. The system doesn’t look that impressive for western New Jersey. At this time I’m thinking coating to 1-2″ max. If it wasn’t so cold I would forecast less but since it is so cold the snow will be light and fluffy.

Then back into the windy freezer on Sunday and Monday. Some of the long range computer models are hinting at a possible coastal snow storm by the middle of next week. I’m not biting yet since several days ago they showed this Saturday’s storm for us being significant of which it won’t be – for us.

Stay warm!

Well that was fun. I realized a while ago that “something” happened preventing me from logging onto this website/blog. But I never had the time to troubleshoot it. I finally had the time today not that the holidays are almost over. Funny thing is I started chatting with tech support on how to fix it and while I was waiting on them, I figured out how to fix it!

So that brings me to an important point. My website was up – I just could make any updates. Sooooooo if that happens again, or if you notice there haven’t been any updates in a while PLEASE go to my Facebook page the accompanies this at:
