Early risers in western New Jersey saw some light snow this morning that coated the ground in a few areas. This was the result of a cold front that moved through. Winds have increased and will stay breezy today but high temperatures will make it to the low 50’s but feel cooler in the wind.

On Tuesday a small fast moving clipper type system will approach the area and give us some rain or wet snow shower in the afternoon ending by early evening. Then we start off April on a sunny but chilly note on Wednesday. Warmer air arrives for the end of the week but so does the chance of showers by Thursday night and Friday.

Western new jersey received anywhere from a coating to 1/2” of sleet and snow mostly last evening. Most locations did receive a coating of ice s well which resulted in no school yesterday and delays this morning.

Today will be a rather nice day. Mostly cloudy skies should become partly cloudy and temperatures should make it to the mid 30’s. This should help with some snow and ice melt. Tomorrow should be similar but a little cooler. Then our attention turns to another clipper and artic front on Thursday. We have seen this, on Thursdays, quite a bit this winter season. Look for it to bring a coating to 2” of snow to the area and then back in the freezer with Friday and Saturday morning lows near 0 and Friday highs in the mid teens. Saturday will stay in the low 20’s. Another fast moving clipper will move into the area on Saturday giving us another shot of light snow. Some of the forecast models allow this clipper to develop while others say no. So like everything this winter we will need to keep an eye on it.


If anyone thinks the weather will warm up anytime soon think again. The 6-10 day temperature outlook released yesterday should the entire eastern seaboard in much below temperatures. Just think of how warm a day in the 40’s will feel when it finally gets here!!

It was a very cold night in western New Jersey this morning. Many stations were in the low single digits with some below zero to the north.

A fast moving clipper system will visit the area this evening into tomorrow morning. Look for some snow showers any time after dinner. I support the above map from the NWS with a general coating to perhaps 1” or so in some area. The storm is moving fast and passing to our north so there could be some amounts closer to 2” up north.

This clipper will also be dragging another artic front through the area early Friday morning. This may result in a few more snow showers or even a brief snow squall. Then look for temperatures to drop for the remainder of the day and be extremely cold Friday night, Saturday and Saturday night.


Out attention then turns to what will happen Sunday night into Monday. Yesterday computer guidance moved the storm further south. But then moved it back north. So we still don’t have any consistency yet. My early thoughts are the storm will have a hard time interacting with the cold air over our area so may stay to our south. We will still have an impact – just need to see how much. Details as the become available.

After the snow storm of sorts colder and breezy conditions have moved into the area. Lows this morning in western New Jersey were generally in the upper single digits and low teens. Looks for a cold and breezy Wednesday with highs in the upper 20’s.


Another cold night tonight with temperatures dropping to around the same levels as last night. Then on Thursday we will see increasing clouds with snow showers moving in the afternoon. Light snow will be likely on Thursday evening. At this time I expect more to the north and less to the south. Western new jersey should expect about 1” of snow – slightly more further north. Good news is the winds will die down a little from where they are today.

The I want to point out how cold it’s going to get Friday night, Saturday and even Saturday night. Friday night/Saturday morning may see the coldest low temperatures of the winter so far. We will be near zero with high Saturday only in the mid teens!

Then we need to turn our attention to Sunday night into Monday. Right now it looks like snow will start and perhaps mix with or change to rain either Sunday night or Monday morning. More information will be posted on this as we get closer. For now just keep this in mind for any Super Bowl plans/parties you may be attending.

20. January 2015 · Comments Off on Update on Wednesday Clipper Snows · Categories: weather discussion · Tags: , ,


The NWS has slightly shifted their anticipated “heavier” snow for Wednesday afternoon and night to our south. I agree with this and their amounts. Look for light snow to move into the area Wednesday afternoon. Timing for western new jersey weather at this point is mid afternoon on. Most of the accumulating snow will be after sunset on Wednesday and Wednesday evening.

Back to today, Tuesday. We will see partly to mostly cloudy at times. There is a disturbance in the upper atmosphere that will be moving through. It’s not out of the question to see a flurry or two at times today but nothing significant.

Thursday morning’s commute will be a tricky one as will the Wednesday evening commute. After that attention turns to our south as two storms will be forming off the SE coast. How close they get to us is the big question. Computer models have been trending SLIGHTLY closer to us so this is something we have to keep an eye on for western NJ weather. Right now best chances of seeing any snow over the weekend or on Monday are to our south and east.

Western New Jersey saw brisk conditions today. There was some left over black ice from yesterdays freezing rain/rain/re-freeze. Winds picked up and there were even a few snow flurries mid day.

Tuesday will feature partly sunny skies in western new jersey with a high temperature in the mid to upper 30’s.

The next chance of precipitation will be Wednesday into Thursday. Right now there are still some uncertainties but this is what it looks like at the present time. Periods of light snow from a fast moving Clipper system appear to develop Wednesday afternoon. This will continue into Wednesday evening and overnight. Right now it looks to be a minor system with the potential to drop 1-3”

After that will be a cold Winter day on Thursday and Friday. The weekend right now looks seasonable with another winter storm most likely passing to our south.

We’ll keep you updated on all storms as always!

07. January 2015 · Comments Off on Coldest Night Of the Year · Categories: weather discussion · Tags: , , ,

In the past 24 hours we picked up 1.6” of snow from yesterday’s fast moving clipper. This included .3” of snow overnight from a snow shower that passed thru the area.

Tonight is shaping up to be the coldest night of the year and season so far.


A reinforcing shot of cold air will arrive today. This will probably be accompanied by some snow showers or even snow squalls. These could put down a dusting to an inch or so in local spots. Best time for this is mid-day into the afternoon. Wednesday evening and Thursday morning will feature low temperatures in the lower single digits in western new jersey area.

The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill advisory from 7 pm tonight until Thursday morning.

Thursday will continue to be a cold winter day with high temperatures not being very high: only in the upper teens!

Winter weather will continue into the weekend with the possibility of breaking freezing Sunday or Monday.

Light snow overspread the area in the early morning hours. So far 1/2” of light fluffy snow has fallen. It’s not expected for us to pick up that much more additional. What is important to note is what falls will stay around well into the weekend so even though its cold today, get out and shovel what needs to be done. Highs in western new jersey today will be in the low to mid 20’s.


Wednesday will be a blustery and cold day with scattered snow showers and highs again in the low to mid 20’s. Then we really get cold Wednesday night and Thursday morning with low temperatures expected to be in the low to mid single digits. Thursday will be the coldest day of the winter so far with daytime highs struggling to get out of the teens.

05. January 2015 · Comments Off on The Return Of Winter · Categories: weather discussion · Tags: , , ,


We all knew winter was here and would return. This week it will happen. After a wintry start to November, winter took some time off for December but is now back. After receiving about 1” rain over the weekend, colder air (and wind!) is on the increase. We will see temperatures in the mid 30’s today with some scattered snow showers mostly to the north and west.

On Tuesday a clipper, or fast moving storm system with limited moisture will be snapping through the area. Look for a light and powdery snow to begin around 8-10 am and taper off before dinner time. We will receive 1-2” with a few isolated amounts higher again mostly to the north and west. Here is a graphic from the NWS on expected snow amounts for western jersey area:


The clipper will bring behind it true artic air. We will have some mornings with single digit lows and some days 9Thursday) may not get above 20!
