Snow Makes An Early Appearance
Snow Makes An Early Appearance
Freeze Watch New Jersey Wednesday Morning
Cold Into Thursday
We have a rather unusual setup for late October and it is even more unusual considering the fact that it was just several short days ago that we saw temperatures in the low to mid 80s. But yes there actually is a chance we could see some wet snow and sleet in areas northwest of the coast arriving during the early morning hours on Thursday. I think the best chances of snow and sleet at the start (where you basically see it fall and thats it) will be in areas in Northern New Jersey north and west of 287 and north of route 80..in the Hudson Valley north of rt 287..and in Western Connecticut north of route 15. It will be enough to remind you that winter isn’t that far away. Areas north and west of route 84 may have enough to whiten up the ground especially where elevation is involved. Areas further north in the Catskills and northward up toward Albany might actually see a coating to a couple of inches out of this.
The GFS model is the coldest of all the models today and probably overdoes it a bit particularly when it comes to amounts. It would suggest 2 to 3 inches of wet snow in areas pretty far to the south.
The European model is colder than the overnight but still warmer than the GFS and so is the NAM. The key will be how fast precipitation gets here. If it races east across Pennsylvania and moves in before daybreak there could be a couple of hours of wet snow and sleet in the mix. Even at the coast the air may cold enough to support some ice pellets at the very start. In the meantime it is going to be chilly the next 2 days with a FREEZE WATCH posted for Wednesday morning for much of New Jersey and it will probably be issued for the Hudson Valley and parts of Long Island shortly.
