Western New Jersey should see some light snow this afternoon starting from 1-3 pm. Most of this should be light snow but near the end and in southern locations it could mix with or change so sleet and freezing rain. The above is an ice forecast followed by a snow forecast from the NWS. My forecast is still for a coasting to 1″. Wintry mix should be over by early evening.

Sunday morning lows below zero!

Cold cold Sunday morning! -2 in Stewartsville and as you can see below zero in many other locations in western New Jersey.

Snow is tapering off from west to east across western new Jersey. Stewartsville received 2.5″ of new snow.

Now the winds are picking up and the temperatures will start to fall. the next concern is wind chills and low temperatures. Please take precautions and make sure your pipes are OK!

Sorry this is a dated image from 11 am. I was about to post then the phone rang. It shows the bands of snow continuing. Another band approaching western New Jersey.

Eastern New Jersey and the Jersey shore and NYC are getting pounded. These spots should easily get 1 foot of snow…
