I was out late last night and arrived home near midnight to 1/2” of snow falling at a good clip. Western New Jersey picked up about 1” of snow overnight.

Today a secondary cold front will push through the area this morning. This will bring in much colder temperatures and strong gusty winds. Once the front passes, I expect temperatures to gradually fall the rest of the day. Winds will pick up so much that the NWS has issued a wind advisory starting at 4 pm today.

Overnight Friday into Saturday morning will be another very cold morning with temperatures in the low single digits. I would not be surprised to see some temperatures at or below zero.

then out attention turns to the next storm. It looks to arrive Sunday evening and last into Monday morning. The weather computer models have been trending more consistent lately and have also brought the storm further north. So far north that there is a rain/snow line to contend with. But I don’t think at this time it will be a factor for us. But if the trend continues it might be.

I agree with the map above from the NWS with projections on about how much snow can fall from this system. What I want to point out is this map is only until 7am Monday and snow could continue into Monday.

The last item I want to mention is the cold pattern looks to continue well into next week. take a glance at Monday nights low! Brrr! Could be the coldest night of the winter season.
