Snow Forecasts Amounts Increased Slightly Saturday

The latest snow forecasts from the National Weather Service show that they have increased their amounts slightly for areas in the Northern half of New Jersey and over Long Island. We have very cold air overhead and so ratios will be high on the order of at 15 to 18-1 which means that an a quarter of an inch of liquid precipitation which would normally yield about 2-3 inches could yield amounts over 4 inches. The issue of how much melted precipitation is the big question. It seems prudent at this point given the bitter cold dry conditions that it may be better to lean on the low side rather than the high side. My feeling on this is that a 1-2 inch snowfall seems likely with some higher amounts possible in favored areas to the east. Snow will fall from mid morning until early evening so this is a relatively short duration event. Another shot of bitter cold air follows for Sunday through Tuesday with lows Monday and Tuesday morning in the single digits to below zero.
