Snow Forecast Final Call

Snow Forecast Final Call

After reviewing all of the models that have come in so far tonight (I have not seen the European) it is hard for me to fight the model trends and the fact that the system and the associated warm front is just not that impressive to me. I think there could be a quick burst of snow at the start along coastal areas but at most a coating to an inch will accumulate. Further inland in Northwest New Jersey and interior areas of the Hudson Valley up to a couple of inches or possible. Higher amounts will fall as you go further north. The track and system structure to me doesn’t look to support more than this. By Monday morning with rising temperatures for many areas it will have already changed over to rain.

Snow Forecast Final Call


Today looks like a nice day with sunshine and a gusty breezy but it will be cold with most highs in the mid to upper 30s. Radars have been showing the lake effect snow activity in Upstate NY but this will be winding down in short order today.

Skies will be clear tonight with less wind and it will be cold by Sunday morning. Most lows will be in the low to mid 20s with teens in the cold spots.



Sunday we will see arriving clouds with highs in the 30s. Then Sunday night will be cloudy with a burst of snow or mixed precipitation developing during the evening in western areas and by midnight in eastern areas. After a few hours a gradual change to rain will occur and by Monday morning the change over line will be moving northward toward route 84 in Pennsylvania, New York State and Connecticut.


Rainfall amounts will be in the half to three quarters of an inch range which will dent the drought a little bit more. Monday temperatures will rise through the 40s to near 50 in some areas and into the 50s in Central and South Jersey and Southeastern Pennsylvania. We will dry out with seasonal temperatures Tuesday. Then much colder air arrives on Wednesday as low pressure develops to the south and east. Some snow with that low could possibly scrape Southern New Jersey and areas to the south briefly as the cold air arrives but it does not look like the wave will have any impact on areas further to the north.
