The coastal low is just off the New Jersey coast and is expected to only move slowly offshore, rain from this system will fall early this morning and then mix with snow later this morning and to all snow this afternoon and tonight. Snowfall amounts are extremely uncertain as it depends where the bands of very heavy snow occur. At this time I will predict 4-7 inches of snow in our area. Travel for the evening commute may become very difficult where the heaviest snow falls.
Mainly dry weather Tuesday through the weekend with temperatures mainly below normal.
