Winter Weather Advisories Northeast Pennsylvania NW New Jersey,
Hudson Valley. Connecticut
Winter Weather Advisories have been extended to include Northwest New Jersey, Northeast Pennsylvania and much of Connecticut. Also the advisories have been extended south to include the lower Hudson Valley to mainly north of Route 287.
The National Weather Service snow forecast amounts generally fall in a range of 2 to 4 inches. The 1 inch line has bee pulled a little further south as well as the area of trace amounts south to Route 78 in New Jersey and also for the North Shore of Ling Island. There will be a few jackpot zones inland with the best chances for locally higher amounts from the Catskills to Northwest Connecticut.
Satellite and radar loops show bands of snow now swinging east across Pennsylvania. The signature on the satellite and radar suggest a rather vigorous upper air low that is moving southeastward. This upper low needs to be watched as it could set off some of those jackpot zones mentioned earlier. Snow develops from west to east this afternoon and then ends from north to south tonight into Monday morning.
Temperatures this afternoon will be in the 40s from NYC southward and east while just inland and where it is snow temperatures will be in the 30s and then settle in the lower 30s in some of the steadier bands. Colder surfaces will likely be favored first and then stick to roadways late today and tonight. Weather conditions will improve Monday with leftover clouds giving way to sunshine in the afternoon with highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Tuesday and Wednesday will be cold and dry. The next storm system heads our way for later Thursday into Friday.
