Snow, Mix, Rain Developing Depending on Location…

 

Synopsis:.

Today will go downhill quickly. A storm over the midwest will begin to transfer it’s energy to a developing low pressure over the Delmarva Peninsula. There will be enough cold air at the onset for a snow/mix for much of the area beginning later this morning. Mainly rain is expected for Monmouth and Ocean counties and Eastern Long Island. Warmer air will work in as the storm intensifies just East of New Jersey. This will cause most of the frozen precipitation to go over to rain. The exception is areas to the North and West. Snow, sleet and freezing rain will likely continue. Here an accumulation is quite likely. Significant icing is likely possible as well. Up to a 1/4″ of glaze may accumulate. Potential snow/sleet amounts by Sunday Midnight are posted above (2nd map).

As the upper low swings to the coast it will capture the surface storm and redevelop it South of Long Island. This upper level feature will bring down cold air. Periods of rain changing to snow is likely. The heaviest precipitation looks to fall North & West of the City. Here the potential for accumulating snow is likely. At this time, the City and coast may receive a minor accumulation. Potential snow amounts by Monday Midnight are posted above (3rd map). The second punch will deliver more snow closer to the urban corridor. These amounts are not etched in stone and will change.

Behind the storm the sun will return Tuesday. Readings will be below average through the upcoming week. The average high is 48┬║.

Stay Tuned.
