Western New Jersey residence woke up to temperatures below zero again this morning. This is at least the second time this happened this winter season. Stewartsville recorded –3. What struck me the most was how the winds picked up late yesterday afternoon/early evening and made the cold even colder. It goes right through you.

Even with sunshine on Friday we will remain in the teens for high temperatures. Keep in mind our normal high temperature this time of year should be 41 degrees! I think if we hit 41 today people would be taking off their shirts in the street! lol

The winds overnight will lighten up and allow our low temperature to drop to near zero again. We will also have increasing clouds which will help keep the temperatures from dropping out too much. Saturday will feature snow arriving as early as late morning. It should start off light and intermittent. The steadiest snow will start in mid to late afternoon. Keep in mind the storm responsible for this precipitation is going to our west and as such is bringing up warmer air. The warmer air will not only be at the surface but aloft too. Saturday will see high temperatures increasing as the day goes on – in the upper 20’s. Then sometime on Saturday evening I anticipate sleet and freezing rain to start mixing in with the snow. We will switch entirely to a wintry mix during the late evening or early overnight hours. We may even end up switching completely to rain on Sunday morning as Sunday’s high temperatures will be in the upper 30’s. But I anticipate precipitation (rain) ending early Sunday morning.

All of the snow we will receive should be on the front end of the storm. So how much for western New Jersey? At this time I’m thinking 2-4”. We could get the amounts the NWS is currently thinking in the map above (4-6). But right now I’m holding them down. Historically warmer air aloft always seems to find its way to southern sections of western NJ. This will result in us changing to a wintry mix and that will keep the snow totals down. For sections further to the north, you could see 4-6”

We turn colder on Monday and could even be at or below zero again next Tuesday morning. But at least the kids will have school on Monday – that hasn’t happened in a while given our storm pattern!

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.
