Snow Forecast National Weather Service Forecast Maps Saturday

The map above is my forecast for Saturday while the maps below are the National Weather Service snow forecast maps for Saturday so you can compare the differences and similarities. Weather models today all lined up and very close to each other. Models generate about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch of melted liquid which would literally translate to 5 to 8 inches but we feel it would be wise at this point to cut that in half and be conservative. There is wiggle room for some upside here. Snow begins before day break in South Jersey and around daybreak near NYC & Long Island and shortly after that in NW New Jersey, the Hudson Valley & Connecticut.

The mid cycle NAM model is even more bullish for snow than it was early (and it was pretty bullish) as it has one strengthening wave passing just to our east Saturday afternoon and evening and it is not moving very fast.

With the frontal boundary on the new NAM further west it would argue for higher amounts but I don’t feel comfortable moving numbers up at the moment. I will wait until tonight or overnight to see if this trend continues and shows up on the other models.

This is a new product from TROPICAL TIDBITS which shows snow amounts forecast that take into account melting and any sleet. This shows 1/2 of what a standard 10-1 snow map would show.
