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.
