Significant Icing North & West Tonight. Snow Monday for Most…

 

Synopsis:.

A storm moving just South of Cape May tonight and crawling off the NJ coast on Monday morning will be responsible for a wide range of precipitation. For tonight coastal areas will experience rain, farther North and West freezing rain has been an issue. Significant icing has occurred. Up the Hudson Valley several inches of snow has been reported. The precipitation, depending on your location will taper off later this evening and overnight. Please use extreme caution where temperatures remain below freezing.

As the upper low swings to the coast it will capture the surface storm and redevelop it South of Long Island on Monday. This upper level feature will bring down cold air. Periods of rain will continue for coastal areas. Any rain inland will change to snow. The heaviest precipitation looks to fall North & West of the City. Here the potential is greatest for significant snow. The latest computer models are more robust with the amount of precipitation. Snow may come down heavy at times in banding with the upper level low supplying the energy along with the surface storm. Areas from the City and to the East will take some time in getting into the snow. But here too, some accumulation is likely. Parts of Long Island will receive only minor accumulations.  Potential snow amounts by Monday Midnight are posted above (3rd map). These amounts have increased but are not etched in stone and will change. Nowcasting with radar and banding of the snow will be key in how much snow falls. The snow will taper off Monday night.

Morning snow over Eastern areas will give way to sunshine behind the storm on Tuesday.

More tranquil conditions are expected for the rest of the week. Readings will be below the average high of 48┬║.

Stay Tuned.
