NWS snow forecast tuesday into wednesday

NWS snow forecast Tuesday into Wednesday

Another chilly morning across western New Jersey this morning with temperatures in the lower teens and upper single digits. Any morning sunshine will be replaced with increasing clouds with high temperatures in the upper 20’s.

The clouds are from a clipper system that will move in from the west and give us some periods of light snow Tuesday into early Wednesday morning. My forecast is similar to the NWS as seen in the map above and is for 1-3″ of light snow. More snow will fall in the north and less to the south. I’ll have more information on about when the snow will arrive later today or tonight.

Their could be some scattered snow showers today but the big story will be the sharply colder temperatures and breezy conditions. It won’t be as bad as last time but stings just the same after the 60’s yesterday!

There are two chances for light snow next week. One on Tuesday and another potential one on Wednesday. I’ll keep an eye on both but for now find the winter clothing and put it back on!

Just about 1″ of rain has fallen in Stewartsville so far today. As seen in the radar image above another area of rain is about to move into western New Jersey. This should be somewhat lighter than what we received before.

Look to the far left on that map and you see pink and blue representing mixed precipitation and snow. Yes that’s right while it’s in the low 60’s here, it’s snowing in the far NW part of PA.

Th cold air should arrive in western New Jersey very fast between 1 am and 5 am tomorrow morning. If it’s still raining we could see that change over to some sleet or freezing rain. As such the NWS has issued a winter weather advisory for Warren county and further N&W. The threat should be over by mid morning tomorrow then sharply colder temperatures over the weekend into next week.

Next change of some wintry weather will be on Tuesday and Wednesday. More on that as it approaches.

Radar at 11:30 am

Radar at 11:30 am

The first round of rain moved in and out of our area this morning. Instead of completely moving out the bottom half is pivoting further west and has started to impact western New Jersey again. I was thinking we would get into the break you see to the west but not yet! This looks to be another hour or two worth of light to moderate rain. So far Stewartsville has received close to 1/2.” And the winds are breezy this morning with a peak gust to 28 mph so far.

High temperature records have already been broken for some locations in and around western New Jersey this Friday morning. There is also no shortage of rain as seen in the radar image above. But the rain will not be continuous today but rather periods of rain. AS of 8 am Stewartsville received 0.15″ of rain. We should receive 1-2″ total area wide.

A wider look at the radar for the eastern half of the country shows three separate areas of rain. One is over us at the moment then there is a break then more rain in western PA. The another break with more rain in western OH and more to the south.

Enjoy the warm weather today as temperatures will fall sharply this time tomorrow.

5 Day Forecast

5 Day Forecast

Western New Jersey will have another day with temperatures above normal with highs in the 40’s. Clouds will prevail be the rain should hold off until after midnight.

Friday will feature periods of rain that will last until early Saturday morning. We should receive 1-2″ of much needed rain. Then sharply colder air arrives on Saturday morning. There’s a slight chance some of the rain could end as a wintry mix. If this happens it will be in the morning. I’ll keep an eye on it and let you know if I see this happening.

Then back in the ice box for several days. Fear not it won’t be as long or severe as last time but it will make you remember that it’s still January
