It’s blue skies, why the weather advisory? A couple of reasons: 1) there can be some snow showers today that can leave anywhere from a coating to an inch or two and b) the strong winds of today that will cause blowing and drifting of the snow resulting in reduced visibility.

...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS EVENING...

* LOCATIONS...Most of eastern Pennsylvania and northwestern New   Jersey.

* HAZARDS...Snow and blowing snow.

* ACCUMULATIONS...Up to 2 inches of new snow accumulation.

* IMPACTS...Blowing and drifting snow will lead to reduced   visibility especially in open areas. In addition, isolated snow 
  squalls today could lead to additional quick snow accumulations,   reduced visibility and exacerbating already hazardous driving conditions.

* WINDS...Northwest 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 40 mph.

* TIMING...Blowing snow is possible through the day. Snow squalls will be possible from mid morning through early this evening.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow and blowing snow means that visibilities will be limited due to a combination of falling and
blowing snow. Use caution when traveling, especially in open areas.

11. December 2016 · Comments Off on Storm Analysis Tonight Into Monday Morning · Categories: precipitation, snow, weather discussion, weather forecast, winter · Tags:

Well it finally looks and feels like December! Here are some reasons this will NOT be a big snow producer for western New Jersey:

1. A warm front is approaching the area. This means once the front passes, we will get warm and the frozen precipitation will turn to rain eventually
2. The main storm system is going to go to our north and west, meaning we will be on the “warm” side of the storm
3. There is no cold high pressure to our north pumping in colder air

NWS expected snow fall

NWS expected snow fall

With the above in mind this is what will happen in western New Jersey. Periods of light snow will overspread the area this afternoon. This could start as early as mid day in some part of the area but most of that should stay to our west. We could see a coating on the ground from this.

Then there will be a break in the precipitation until the storm get closer to our area. The precipitation should resume mid to late evening and continue overnight.

I expect light snow to mix with sleet and freezing rain before eventually changing to plain rain by Monday morning. This transition will happen faster in southern and lower elevation areas. Areas further north and more elevated areas will see the transition take longer.

In southern warren county, central and southern hunterdon counties I expect a coating to 1″ of snow before changing over to mix then rain. North of that area up to and perhaps just a little bit further north of I-80 I can see 1-3″ of light snow. North of that has the potential for 3-6″ before the changeover.

There could be some light ice buildup during the changeover period so be aware of that.

The Monday morning commute will need some extra travel time so please allow for it.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather advisory starting at 1 pm today lasting into tomorrow.

7day

The NWS has issued a Winter Weather Advisory (below) for western New Jersey for this afternoon and overnight. The first round of precipitation is arriving with the air, mostly aloft, cold enough for wintry weather.

I’m not expecting too much with this system, especially in southern areas, as the air temperature will be above freezing most of the time. Look for a slushy accumulation mostly on non paved and non treated surfaces. Slightly more could accumulate further to the north.

Later on Wednesday into early Thursday morning look for more important rain and windy conditions then colder as we go into the weekend.
