Weekend Forecast? Just an Inch of Snow
It turns out the upcoming storm will stay to our south. This means we'll only see an inch or two of snow Saturday night.
Here's the latest:
WHEN: Snow will arrive Saturday evening. Periods of moderate snow will be possible through Sunday morning, with it likely tapering off by Sunday afternoon. There's a chance that we may see some additional snow showers Sunday night.
HOW MUCH: As of Friday morning, the National Weather Service is forecasting these totals:
"About 1 to 2 inches can be expected in an area from Berks County to Ocean County and points south including the Greater Philadelphia area, but most of the snow in this region will fall Saturday night with Sunday looking to be mainly dry," forecasters with the National Weather Service wrote today.
Why won't see much more in the way of snow?
Well, "we have to look at the preponderance of model guidance pointing toward the most likely outcome: no more than about 3 inches in southern New Jersey," Townsquare New Jersey's chief meteorologist Dan Zarrow explained this morning.
Of course, a heavier snow band could develop a little further north, but right now we're likely to see 1-2" across much of the southern half of New Jersey.
AFTER THE STORM: "Temperatures are going to stay cold for the foreseeable future. Mid-30s Monday. Upper-30s to around 40 on Tuesday. The warmest day of next week will be Wednesday, as southwesterly winds push high temps into the lower to mid-40s," Zarrow told us.
NEXT STORM: We could see some snow showers on Wednesday and Friday, but they should be pretty insignificant. There's some discussion about a bigger system NEXT weekend (January 19), but of course, that's still a ways away.
