Spring Snow Monday Interior Northeast Cold Rain Coast
The weekend is upon us and after yesterday’s spring warmth of temperatures in the 70s we go back to normal today. Clouds are around this morning as we wait for yesterday’s cold front to move a little further south but we should break out into some sunshine this afternoon. There will be a gusty wind and temperatures will be mostly in the upper 40s to mid 50s for highs so just subtract 10 to 20 degrees from yesterday. Colder air is coming in tonight and as skies clear, we should see lows Sunday morning in the 20s to lower 30s in most places.
The radar is showing rain to the southeast and some of that rain has been clipping Southern New Jersey and points south but this is sliding out to the east and is of no real consequence to our weather today.

Sunday will be a cold but sunny day at least into the afternoon before clouds start arriving. Highs will be in the low to mid 40s. The cold high to the north will start to slide out to the east as low pressure heads our way from the Ohio Valley. The low weakens and then redevelops off the Delaware coast on Monday.
Monday morning we will see precipitation arrive and it could start as a burst of wet snow or sleet for NYC to Philadelphia southward for a short time before it goes over to a cold rain. As you work your way inland however it could snow for a short time. The further north and west you go the longer it lasts.
For inland areas as my snow forecast map shows, the black line starts the area where there could be a coating to an inch or two and it will be mainly on grassy surfaces. The sun angle and the questionable intensity means roads will be wet. Also elevation will be key here and the higher up you are the better the chance for accumulating snow at least for a few hours. Northeast Pennsylvania northeastward to Northern Connecticut could see a few inches and there will be a band of 4 inch plus snows from the Poconos and Catskills northward. Precipitation comes to an end from southwest to northeast during the evening hours and weather conditions will improve afterwards.
Our fast pattern continues and while weather conditions improve on Tuesday another storm system arrives with a cold rain for Tuesday night and Wednesday. There isn’t any cold air to speak of after the first system so the second one will be just rain making for a dreary day. Thursday we dry out and then a cold front arrives with a chance for showers on Friday.
