Freezing Rain Advisory early Saturday morning

Freezing Rain Advisory early Saturday morning

The National Weather Service has issued a freezing rain advisory early Saturday morning. This is basically for the wee hours of Saturday morning starting from 1 am and should be well over by 9 am.

I don’t expect most areas in the south and central section of western New Jersey to see much if any freezing rain. In colder sections and deeper valley further to the north the rain may start out as a little freezing rain.

With many people traveling and visiting for the holidays it’s better to be safe than sorry.

We can expect rain to be over around mid day and for most areas of western New Jersey to receive about 1/4″ to 1/2″ of much needed rain. Of course no one wants to see rain on Christmas Eve but it should be well over before holiday services later in the day and evening.

Here is the advisory:

I expect western New Jersey to receive anywhere from 1/2″ to 1″ of rain.

Then just in time for Christmas Eve, warm temperatures!

If I don’t get a chance to post again until after Christmas I want to wish all readers a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Thank you for reading my thought on weather for our area.

Western New Jersey finds its Christmas Eve weather on the warm, foggy and moist side this morning. Look for more of the same to continue today along with the wind picking up. IN fact it might get down right windy at times tonight into tomorrow with wind gusts to near 40 mph.

In the last 24 hours we picked up 0.21” of rain. We could pick up another 1/2” of rain and perhaps locally more.

This will certainly go down as one of the warmest Christmas’s from a temperature point of view. A cold front will come thru early Christmas morning but no real true cold air is behind this front. We will need to wait until around the New Year for a true pattern change and colder weather and potential for snow.

I may not have a post tomorrow since it’s Christmas. If not I wish you and yours a Merry Christmas!
