Colder Saturday. Scattered Areas of Late Day Light Snow…

 

Synopsis:

Colder weather will return this weekend. A strong, cold high will be to our North as a stationary front throws moisture to the North.  Clouds and a period of snow showers or light snow is expected later today and this evening(FutureCast radar above).  Many areas will remain snow-free under mostly cloudy skies for the majority of the day.  Up to a coating of snow is possible where the snow is the steadiest.

Sunday will feature more sunshine as high pressure moves in.

Looking down the pike the weather pattern will look more like Spring with a ridge of high pressure off the Southeast coast. This is not a pattern conducive to snow along the East coast. Mild temperatures are expected the next seven to ten days.

Today:

Mainly cloudy with some dim sun. Colder. Highs in the mid 30s. Chance of snow showers or a period of light snow later in the afternoon and during the evening. Northeast to Southeast wind at 5mph.

Tonight:

Early Snow showers otherwise becoming partly cloudy. Lows in the upper 20s in the City, near 20º inland. Southeast to Northwest wind at 5-10mph.

Sunday:

Mostly sunny. Highs in the lower 40s.

Monday (MLK Day):

Mostly sunny with highs around 40º.

Tuesday:

More clouds than sun with a few showers. Mild. Highs in the mid to upper 40s.

Wednesday:

Cloudy with showers. Mild. Highs in the lower 50s.

Not as Warm Today, Still Mild…

 

Synopsis:

Our January thaw consisted of record breaking temperatures on Thursday. Most areas shattered their record highs as temperatures skyrocketed into the 60s!  A cool front has moved through and will bring our readings down twenty degrees from yesterday’s highs (still temps will be well above average).

Colder weather will return this weekend (map above shows colder air moving into the upper plains today. This will head our way). A strong, cold high will be to our North as a stationary front throws moisture to the North.  All the models have gone significantly lighter with the precipitation field. At this time flurries or snow showers are possibility later Saturday and Saturday Night. This will not be a big deal.

Looking down the pike the weather pattern will look more like Spring with a ridge of high pressure off the Southeast coast. This is a snowstorm killer. Mild temperatures are expected the next seven to ten days.

Today:

Partly sunny. Not as warm as Thursday, but the thaw continues. Highs in the mid to upper 40s.  The average high for this time of the year is 38º.

Tonight:

Partly cloudy, much colder than recent nights. Lows will be in the mid 20s in the City, near 20º inland. Northwest to North wind diminishing to 5-10mph.

Saturday:

Sun will give way to increasing clouds. Colder. Highs in the mid 30s. Chance of flurries or snow showers later in the afternoon and at night.

Sunday:

Mostly sunny and seasonal with readings around 40º.

Monday (MLK Day):

Partly sunny with highs around 40º.

A cool front will swing through early Friday morning and bring our readings down at least ten degrees from today’s highs (still temps will be well above average).

Colder weather will return this weekend.. A strong, cold high will be to our North as a stationary front throws moisture to the North.  All the models have gone significantly lighter with the precipitation field. At this time flurries or snow showers are possibility later Saturday and Saturday Night. This will not be a big deal.

Today:

More clouds than sun. A sprinkle is possible. Spring-like. Highs in the upper 50s, 60s over Central and Southern NJ. Breezy. Southwest wind at 15-25mph.

January Thaw. Near 50º Today…

 

 

screen-shot-2017-01-10-at-3-36-13-pm

Synopsis:

A January thaw is upon us as our flow will continue out of the Southwest through the end of the week. Say goodbye to the snow on the ground.  Temperatures today will be well above average.  A more significant warm front will move into the area tonight with a period of rain.  Thursday will be April-like with readings some twenty degrees above average.

Looking down the pike, our next shot of wintry weather comes late Saturday afternoon and Saturday night. A strong, cold high will be to our North as a stationary front throws moisture to the North. The potential is there for Light snow.  The question is-how much moisture will work into the immediate tri-state area?  As of this writing the computer models are not robust at all with precip amounts-meaning not a significant snowfall. Possibly just some flurries. Stay tuned.

Today:

Partly sunny and mild.  Highs in the lower 50s. Southwest winds at 10-15mph.

Tonight:

Rain developing by late evening. Mild. Steady to slowly rising temperatures. Lows will be in the 40s to lower 50s. Southeast to Southwest winds at 10-15mph.

Thursday:

More clouds than sun. A sprinkle is possible. Spring-like. Highs in the upper 50s.

Friday:

Partly sunny. The thaw continues. Highs in the upper 40s.  The average high for this time of the year is 38º.

Saturday:

Sun will give way to increasing clouds. Colder. Highs in the mid 30s. Chance of light snow or flurries later in the afternoon and at night.

Sunday:

Partly sunny and seasonal with readings in the upper 30s.

A period of rain is expected tonight. A January thaw is on the way as our flow will continue out of the Southwest through the end of the week. Say goodbye to the snow on the ground.

Today:

Mostly cloudy, not as harsh. Spotty light snow, sleet or rain is possible in the afternoon mainly over the Northern half of the area. This won’t be a big deal (if it occurs at all).  Highs in the 30s to around 40º. South wind at 5-10mph.

Tonight:

Steadier rain will develop. Which may begin as a mix well inland. Steady to slowly rising temperatures. Lows will be in the 30s to around 40º. Southwest winds at 5mph.

Snow. Heaviest Over Eastern Areas…

Periods of snow of varyring intensity will fall into the afternoon.

Light Snow Tonight/Early Fri. AM. Snow Threat East Saturday…

 

Synopsis:

A bit of snow is expected to develop later this evening over the Western ‘burbs and around Midnight around the City and East as a weak low pressure system moves up and off the coast. This will not be a significant snow. Most areas will receive a coating to two inches. Isolated 3″ amounts are possible over Central NJ. The snow will end by sunrise for most. Eastern Long Island the flakes will quite by mid morning. The sun will return soon after with slightly below average temperatures.

Now, to the snow threat for coastal and Eastern areas on Saturday. The latest computer models have nudge the snow shield Northwest with the developing offshore storm. It’s a not a huge jog, but enough of a concern to include the potential of some snow for Coastal areas, possibly the City, and especially Long Island.  Could a few inches fall out East. It’s a possibility, not a certainty. There a still a some time to fine tune this forecast. Just be aware of the potential. Farther inland skies clouds and some sun is expected.
