Winter Weather Advisory NW New Jersey Northeast Pa Catskills

Parts of Hudson Valley

The first Winter Weather Advisories are up for Northwest New Jersey, Northeast Pennsylvania, and the Catskills. Also we have western areas of the Hudson Valley under and advisory (Orange County). We may see additional counties being added Wednesday morning once we get a solid picture of the precipitation and the state of the atmosphere. In the meantime we have a nice evening with some patchy high clouds around. Those clouds will increase tonight as low pressure comes up from the south. Right now the radars are clear. Morning lows will be in the lower 30s with some 20s in cold spots.

Wet snow and rain will develop Wednesday morning depending on your location. We continue to believe that with the ground being on the warm side, and temperatures that are not all that cold, paved surfaces will be mostly wet and this snow will not impede travel in most places. The exception to this will be in elevated areas especially above 1000 feet and that is why advisories are posted in those counties that have higher elevations.

You will notice on the loop how the rain gets in there from time to time and that is being governed by intensity. Heavier precipitation cools the bottom of the atmosphere. This is a wet snow with big flakes and pretty to watch. Had this system happened at night accumulations would be higher. The loop above runs from 5am Wednesday until 11pm Wednesday. This is basically a 12 hour event from 5 to 7am start time and a 5 to 8pm end time from southwest to northeast. Weather conditions improve Wednesday night leading us to dry days Thursday and Friday.

As for snow accumulations I think it will be on the order of up to a few inches inland and a coating to an inch coast and south mainly on colder surfaces. Again elevation will be a driver of higher amounts and accumulation on paved surfaces.
