Snow Forecasts Friday No Major Changes

This was my early call snow forecast map from yesterday and based on overnight weather models I’m making no changes at the moment. This is a minor event and accumulations will be impacted by time of day and intensity. Chances are roads will be okay with this and accumulations would tend to favor colder surfaces. However we really won’t be able to nail that down until Thursday night when we can get a good feel for the temperature profiles of the atmosphere. The best chances for more than inch or so lie in areas that have gotten snow this year which is mainly along and north of Route 78 in New Jersey & Pennsylvania, The Hudson Valley and Southern New England. The National Weather Service snow forecast maps are below and check the time stamp to make sure you have the most recent forecast map.

This morning the last of the rain showers on the radar are moving offshore and weather conditions will improve fairly rapidly with skies going partly to mostly sunny from west to east this morning and everyone should be nice and sunny by midday. Afternoon temperatures will reach into the 60s before cooler air moves in tonight and Thursday. Thursday’s highs will be in the low to mid 50s with sunshine giving way to late day clouds. Then look for snow or rain developing after midnight and lasting until about noon Friday. Rain should change over to snow everywhere before it ends and then much colder weather follows with temperatures settling into the upper 20s and lower 30s later in the day Friday and down into the teens to near 20 by Saturday morning. A cold dry weekend is ahead with sunshine both Saturday and Sunday and highs just into the 30s both days. Weather models have moved away from a storm for Sunday as low pressure passes well south and east however there is plenty of energy in the atmosphere and there could be the chance for more snow on Tuesday as another system swings out of the midwest and redevelops along the Middle Atlantic coast. We will address this issue later today.
