Yesterday’s cold front is stalling out across the Southern US and there is a huge area of rain that extends from West Texas east to the Carolina. It is from here that low pressure will develop on the stalled front on Friday and move northeast up the coast offshore. It is really a question of how close it is to us. Right now it would seem that only the immediate coastal areas of New Jersey and Eastern Long Island would be in line for some snow. Over the last few weeks we have seen set ups like this produce waves that shift northwestward at the last minute and we will be watching for this possibility. Most of the latest weather models support an offshore track with a minimal consequence to our weather.

The maps below are the National Weather Service forecast snow maps with the most likely snowfall prediction.

From the maps above the best chances for an inch or two of accumulation would be for Central & Eastern Long Island and Southeastern New England. Areas in New Jersey south of Route 195 show less than an inch. Areas to the north and west of the coast will see just a lot of clouds Saturday with little if any snow.

Here is my snow forecast map for comparison. The National Weather Service is being a bit more aggressive in Eastern Long Island then my forecast. For more on my forecast and the reasoning behind it you can check the latest JOESTRADAMUS post.

We will also be watching weather model developments overnight and over the next 2 days in case a northwest trend develops. Regardless of whether it snows or not temperatures will be on the cold side of average probably for the next 2 weeks.
