Burst of Snow or Rain Friday Morning,
Snow Saturday Looking More Benign
Thursday wasn’t exactly a picnic with highs just in the 40s and a busy wind for much of the day. 15 degrees below average this time of year hurts. Now we look to two weather systems that will work their way through.
The first Friday morning brings a burst of wet snow or just rain along the coast. Some areas inland north and west as well as northeast could see a coating to as much as an inch or so in some places. If that happens it will all melt away within 30 minutes of ending. Lots of clouds will be around Friday. Areas in Central and South Jersey could see some breaks of sun with highs reaching 60 while areas to the north may have a tough time getting out of the 40s.
While there is energy coming into the west and moving east it is nothing special. Clouds on the satellite in the west will be moving east as a weak low forms on a front Friday and that low moves east Friday night into Saturday morning. Regional and local radars meanwhile remain quiet this evening but we will see some activity develop toward morning.

Friday night a cold front drops through and passes to the south while some energy moves along it. Rain will develop during the early morning hours on Saturday and then change over to snow for a few hours. A slushy accumulation is possible but overall this is not going to amount to much. This at least is the trend of models as they move further south and become more suppressive.
The jet stream just suppresses everything and basically overwhelms the southern energy which is not all that impressive to begin with. Barring a last minute surprise this is going to be a minor event for most areas. Snow or whatever is falling could all be done by mid morning or noon Saturday followed by improving weather conditions Saturday afternoon and night. Sunday looks mostly sunny but cold. Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be in the 40s.
