A fast moving storm will bring light snow to northern New Jersey Tuesday

The light snow could start before the morning commute and last a good portion of the day. Look for a coating to 1″ from I-78 on southward. North of there look for 1-2.” Temperatures tomorrow will not be as cold in the afternoon and its possible some areas, especially in the south, could see a little light rain at times in the afternoon.

The State pre treated the roads with brine as of yesterday so hopefully they will be fine as long as the rate of precipitation doesn’t get too heavy.

Updates as the situation changes.

After today’s milder weather it’s back to reality. A storm system moving to our south should come north enough to give western New Jersey some light snow late Thursday into Friday morning. The timing doesn’t look good for the morning rush. the roads are pre-treated well.

I agree with the NWS map above and believe western New Jersey will receive a coating to 1″ with more to the south and east for a change.

Then the big story is we are back to winter temperatures until Tuesday of next week so bundle up!

Light snow approaching from the SW

Light snow approaching from the SW

If you have any outdoor chores to do today is the day. There is some very light snow or flurries approaching from the SW. Look for them to arrive late afternoon into the early evening. It shouldn’t amount to too much but some areas may receive a dusting.

Wednesday will be a transition day as the next front will move through later in the day and into the evening ushering in the coldest air of the season. More details on that tomorrow…

The first snow of December is in the books. This is our second snowfall of the fall. 1/2″ was recorded in Stewartsville, NJ. I’ve seen reports of as much as 1.5″ in High Point NJ.

Take a picture if you like snow on the ground becasue it won’t last long. Rain returns later Tuesday into Wednesday morning. Then colder air arrives later in the week.

A relatively weak system will be moving into the western New Jersey area later Sunday evening into the overnight hours and Monday morning. Initially temperatures may be warm enough to produce some cold rain showers. As the precipitation picks up a little and the atmosphere cools down, we should see this change over to light wet snow.

How much? Right now it looks like a coating to 1″ in most of the area. Further to the north and in elevated areas (> 1000′) you may see 1-2″ of snow.

Certainly not a crippling event BUT it will be the first event of the season and Monday morning commutes are stressful enough as it is.

But it is December and will be seeing more of this potential in the weeks ahead. The rest of the mid week will feature on and off light chances of rain. Then the coldest air of the season arrives late Thursday into next weekend. The weather pattern looks to turn active! Who’s happy about that?

The latest snowfall forecast map from the NWS is included above. I’m in agreement with their forecast for western New Jersey of 1-3″ with the higher numbers to the south and less to the north. A winter weather advisory is issued by the NWS for Hunterdon county.

Light snow fell overnight in portions of western New Jersey. Stewartsville received 0.3″. An area of light snow is now moving into western New Jersey. This will last for an hour or two and provide a coating of snow on colder surfaces.

The snow today will be on an off – it will not be snowing all day. There will be some breaks. During these breaks the temperature should go into the mid 30’s which should allow for what falls to start melting.

The biggest change for today’s forecast is the periods of snow look to continue into the evening hours and could last till near midnight. This is when we might pick up the most accumulating snow from the event. Once the sun sets and the temperature drops, whatever falls then will stick.

Updates as warranted and time permits.

A light snowfall is in the forecast for Tuesday for western New Jersey. More snow will fall to our south. At this time I’m expecting 1-3″ for western New Jersey. I had the “pleasure” of driving through this storm early today in Ohio. It was more intense than I thought it would be. Within 1 10 minute drive the left lane was covered and visibility greatly reduced. One hour later the snow had let up considerable so it wasn’t a big event – just enough to slow things down a little

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!
