This morning is mostly clear and quite chilly with temperatures only in the low-mid 20s. As the day progresses we will have increasing cloudiness with snow arriving after 4PM, it may accumulate about 1/2 inch by evening mostly on colder surfaces. This precipitation then will change to a yucky mess of snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain that will continue past midnight, the total snow and ice accumulation should be about an inch before changing to all rain during the early morning hours, however inland there will be a longer period of frozen precipitation with amounts up to 4 inches over northwestern New Jersey.
The rain will end in the early afternoon on Tuesday followed by clearing.
Don’t look for spring weather for the first day of spring on Wednesday and maybe a week or more after. Well below normal temperatures into next weekend but it will at least be dry.
Some models are showing another storm for early next week that may give us more winter weather, stay tuned for details as we get closer to this next event.
