Spring and fall can feature variables in the weather. So far this month is showing signs of not disappointing. After a very cold weekend, we are starting to rebound to warmer weather today. We should get into the 50’s today and tomorrow. Remember the average high this time of year is about 46 and climbing.

With warmer weather brings rain as is evident this morning. Western New Jersey is receiving light rain this morning. Look for this to taper to showers this afternoon. This is the warm front passing through our area. A cold front will pass through later tonight and be accompanied by some additional rain and perhaps even a rumble of thunder.

And then what?

Well some unseasonable cold weather is heading to western New Jersey. Thursday will be a transition day with temperatures mostly in the 40’s as cold air filters into our area. A weak system will be approaching from the west that can give is some light precipitation Thursday night into Friday morning. At this time is looks like it could be cold enough for a wintry mix and snow (especially to the north).

This will clear our Friday afternoon and more cold air comes into our region. Saturday looks similar to last Saturday with temperatures struggling to get above the freezing mark. We all knew we were going to have pay back for all that unusual warmth last month!

And then what?

Another more potent storm system looks to be approaching our area from the south and west. As of right now it appears we will be on the colder side of the storm. The big question is how far north does it get. Will we be on the northern fringe or will we feel the full impacts? Traditionally this winter when computer models show a system impacting areas to our south in advance, tend to migrate to the north as the event nears. Let’s see if that happens with this one. As a result Sunday has the potential to be a wintry day. How wintry? It could be enough to remind us it’s still winter. If everything comes together it could be a plow-able event. Keep in mind it can snow in March. Ironically this Sunday, March 13 is the anniversary of a famous super storm that impacted the east coast in 1993. No this will not be that but it could be notable. For snow to happen in late winter you need to have close to perfect conditions.

Beyond that the cold air looks to stay around into the new week with another storm potential around mid week.

7 day weather forecast for western new jersey

colder weather ahead

Today should be the last of the nice and warm days for a while for western New Jersey. Even thought it felt closer to the season as you head out the door today, high temperatures will still be above normal in the low 50’s.

Another rain maker is on the way for Thursday. this system looks to bring more rain than the last. We should see around 1/3″ to 1/2″ of rain.

After the rain it turns colder. But nothing crazy for the second half of December. But it will feel very cold since we’re all used to the above normal temperatures! But don’t worry too much – the long rang outlook for next week has us back in the 50’s and possibly approaching 60 again. Hopefully Santa knows how to land without snow 😎

Monday morning started off icy as mentioned yesterday.

Icy start to Monday morning

What I found very interesting with this mornings ice is there was none on the trees – only the ground and roads. that tells me the air temperature was slightly above freezing but the ground was very cold from the preceding weather.

So far we picked up .41” of rain as of 5pm. Another light band of rain is moving through presently. There is some additional light rain and snow in central and western PA associated with the cold front that will move through later tonight. So we may see a little bit of frozen precipitation before it is all said and done.

Colder weather returns for Tuesday and Wednesday. Then a gradual moderation later in the week into the weekend.

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!

21. December 2014 · Comments Off on Winter Solstice Arrives Today · Categories: weather discussion · Tags:

Happy first day of winter! The winter solstice doesn’t occur until 6:03 pm eastern this evening. So what does this mean? We’ll this is the southern most our sun travels in the sky. It’s also close to the shortest day of the year. From this point forward we will be getting more and more sunlight each day. But don’t get out the sun block yet. It will be a slow change up until March when we hit the first day of Spring!

More of the same weather for today. Some very, very light snow flurries surprised us yesterday in the morning. Today will be partly to mostly cloud with high’s near 40. Even though winter arrives tonight the weather won’t feel winter like for a while. Temperatures will be above normal into Christmas day with rain and wind likely, especially Christmas eve and day.
