NWS Snow Forecast for Thursday

NWS Snow Forecast for Thursday

This is a brief Wednesday midday update on the Thursday snow. So far everything looks on track. As seen above the NWS has increased their snow forecast for 2-4″ of snow for western New Jersey from west to east. I think that’s a good forecast at this point.

The snow should start after midnight but before sunrise. The heaviest part should be from about 6 am until noon. Then just flurries and turning windy with some strong wind gusts in the afternoon!

Then bitter, bitter cold air and wind into Sunday morning with near or slightly below zero temperatures Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Rain has made its way to western New Jersey as of mid day

As you can see on the radar above, the far norther and western locations are seeing some sleet or wet snow mixed in. This is mostly at the higher elevations.

Conditions will continue to deteriorate this rest of the day into the evening. Rain will continue to become steadier and heavier and winds will pick up. Stewartsville has recorded a wind gust to 31 at 11:46. There have been wind gusts in the 50’s closer to the shore.

A large complex storm system in the eastern half of the nation is going to evolve into a wind and rain maker for western new jersey area. This is part of the same storm system that brought deadly severe weather to the southeast yesterday.

Look for rain to develop today and become heavier and steadier as the day continues. Look for 3/4″ – 1.5″ of rain in western New Jersey.

Winds will also be a big factor for this storm. We are already seeing wind gusts to near 30 this morning. Look for wind gust to 45 later today into tomorrow. There is a Wind Advisory from the NWS until at least 7 pm tonight.

Since this is late January, we typical think snow when we have strong storms like this. There will be some snow from this system but will be far north and west of western New Jersey. I do expect some sleet to mix in a times especially tonight.

The extended January thaw looks to end before we start a new month.

Living on the edge. Most locations of western New Jersey will be on the outer edge of snow courtesy of a coastal storm to our south and east on Saturday. Flurries have just started falling in Stewartsville and will continue on and off today. I sill like the idea of a coasting to 1″ with the potential of more to the south and east. Some locations in southern Hunterdon county could see closer to 2″.

One thing is certain today and tomorrow” it will be cold. Temperatures will remain in the 20’s today and the wind will come back Sunday making it feel even colder!

NWS snow forecast map for our area. Note how much more will fall from this storm to our south and east!

Stewartsville, NJ received just under 1″ of snow on January 6, 2017

Most areas received a dusting overnight in western New Jersey. Friday will remain a cold day with temperatures just barely climbing to near freezing.

The next storm will come up from the south and try to turn north and go up the coast. But it will have this cold dome of high pressure that doesn’t want to move. So it will be a squeeze play. I expect some snow showers over most of western New Jersey that could result in a coating to perhaps 1″ further to the east and south. As you you can see from the NWS snowfall forecast map above, most of the snow will fall to our south and east. Further south some areas of Virginia and NC will receive 6-12″ of snow.

20160111-WxGraph

Wanted to share the above weather graph from my home weather station in Stewartsville, NJ. Notice the impressive and steady temperature drop from early afternoon which is constant to right now! You can clearly see from the temperature (top) and the pressure (bottom) when the cold front came through. Of course many people in western New Jersey could also see and hear when the cold front came through yesterday! Not only were there impressive clouds and heavy rain squalls but thunder and lightning in some spots too! Quite impressive for January!

7day

A reinforcement of cold air is going to arrive on Tuesday courtesy of a fast moving storm system called a “clipper.” We will see flurries and even some snow showers in western New Jersey tomorrow into tomorrow night. It’s not out of the question that some locations could receive a dusting of snow by Wednesday morning. This is more likely to the north and west but could happen anywhere!

There will be a slight warm up by end of week followed by another storm late weekend into next week then more cold air.

Another cold night in western New Jersey. The cold temperatures were the result of clear skies and calm winds overnight that allowed temperatures to drop near the dew point in spots. With plenty of sunshine today we should have afternoon high temperatures in the mid to upper 30’s.

7day

After that the milder trend continues into the weekend. We should see high temperatures in the low 40’s on Thursday and Friday. There looks to be two chances of rain into the weekend. The first will be late Friday night into Saturday morning. Then again late Saturday night into Sunday morning. Due to the warmer weather this will be rain in our area.

Looking ahead colder weather looks to return next week. This should not be a surprise since it’s January!

Baby it’s cold outside! Map above courtesy of NJweather.org. Tuesday morning low temperatures in western New Jersey are in the single digits. Today will feature plenty of sunshine *and* a little less wind. That should make it slightly more bearable but it will still be cold. A little more relief comes Wednesday.

7day

Thursday is even warmer and back to above normal with high in the 40’s into the weekend.
