Winter Weather Advisory Continues Overnight
For Northern New Jersey north and west of route 78 including Northeastern Pennsylvania, All of New York State except New York City and Long Island and all of Southern New England, the Winter Weather Advisory continues. For most of our area from Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England, the main threat is sleet and then freezing rain. Winter Weather lovers were heard cheering as ice pellets fell this evening around the area!!!
The satellite loop shows the storm center well to the west in Illinois moving northeast with moisture moving northeastward up the east coast. Radar loops below show precipitation expanding so the trick is figuring what gets here while temperatures are below 32.
As the night wears on temperatures will begin to rise through the 40s across New Jersey and that warm air will start to penetrate Northern New Jersey and Southeastern New York and other areas after about 1 or 2 am. A gradual change to rain will take place and by daybreak it should be above 32 in most areas of New Jersey and the Hudson Valley except for perhaps the extreme north and northwest parts of both areas. The changeover will also gradually move from south to north into Connecticut as well.
Exercise caution if you are driving. This is the first time this season we are seeing wintry precipitation of any kind and we need to be reminded how to drive in it. Ice accumulation of up to 2 tenths of an inch could occur in the coldest spots before it changes to rain. Once it changes we will see rain until mid morning to lunch time and conditions will gradually improve Tuesday afternoon and evening. Total rains could reach 1 to possibly 2 inches in some areas especially along Coastal New Jersey and Long Island. The drought conditions continue to be relieved.
Temperatures Tuesday will range from near 40 Northwest NJ and the Northern Hudson Valley and interior Connecticut, to the 60s in South Jersey and parts of Southeast Pennsylvania.
