IS SPRING FEVER AROUND THE CORNER??? NO.  ha ha ha Sorry to be blunt like that and getting your hopes up but this cold pattern looks to continue through mid-March.  Originally I was thinking maybe the first week of March would look warmer, but now it’s looking cold and stormy again.  Yes this time of year as the sun gets higher in the sky and we head towards spring, it won’t be as brutal as it’s been, and we will probably have a few days here and there of warmer days mixed in between the cold shots getting everyone in spring fever mode, but the overall theme looks to continue.  Cold and stormy.  At this rate, my kids will won’t see a baseball diamond until April!! Ha ha ha  Personally I just need one more good snowstorm and then I’m ready to move on.  Not a nuisance snow, but a GOOD snowstorm.
 
Ok regarding the short term, the storm on Wednesday looks like a close miss for most of us.  This will be a true southern snowstorm for the folks from Charlotte, NC to Virginia Beach, Va where they can expect 6-10 inches of snow.  For the rest of us, those in DC metro, Central and Southern Delaware, Cumberland, Atlantic and Cape May County NJ, Twin Forks of Long Island and Cape Cod, you might get brushed with 1-3 inches of snow as the storm scrapes you to your east.  Perhaps some light snow for all other coastal counties in NJ, NYC, Long Island and New England for Wednesday night into Thursday.  Dusting to an inch at best.  Nothing at all for those in the NW burbs.  There is still a chance this heads further north and closer to the coast giving coastal areas more snow, so I’ll still keep an eye on it, but as of now, it’s a close miss.
 
The weekend storm for Sunday into Monday will have to be watched as well.  All depends on the strength and track of the storm. Another Snow to sleet to freezing rain scenario??  Stay tuned.
 
Then another possible wintry threat Tuesday into Wednesday of next week. (3/3-3/4)

No big deal but this storm is coming slightly further north so I’m going to increase amounts slightly for a few areas.  Snow moves in by dawn the latest.
 
Cumberland, Cape May, Atlantic Counties in NJ, Central and Southern Delaware, DC Metro, Twin Forks of Long Island and Cape Cod: 2-4 inches of snow now.
 
Extreme SE Burlington County and Southern Ocean County in NJ and Baltimore metro: 1-3 inches of snow.
 
Everyone else I’m increasing slightly to a dusting to 2 inches.  (less NW of I-95 and more SE)
 
Still watching Sunday night into Monday for a storm and then another storm around next Wednesday.

Ok basically everyone WEST of the NJ Turnpike will see more snow than everyone else.  Those east of the turnpike will still see snow, but it should change over to rain sooner keeping accumulations down in those areas as temps soar into the 40’s down in South Jersey.  However, I will say this.  This snow will come in like a brick wall tomorrow everywhere. So it will go from nothing one minute to heavy snow relatively soon.   So if you’re out and about tomorrow, be prepared for quickly changing road conditions.  Also, if this snow arrives sooner rather than later, then you can almost bet on the higher end of the snow totals below.  If it arrives later, then you can bank on the lower end of those snow totals. (Snow should arrive between 11am-3pm)  It will be such a tight gradient with the rain/snow lines that I had to break it down by specific counties for this storm.  Find your county or area below. Any questions, just ask.  (btw, the mild air won’t last as temps crash back down Sunday night)
 
Monmouth, Ocean, Eastern Middlesex,, Eastern Burlington, Eastern Camden, Eastern Gloucester, Eastern Salem, Eastern Union, Eastern Essex, Hudson County, NYC METRO, Nassau County in NY, Boston metro: 2-4 inches of snow before changing over to sleet and then rain Saturday evening. (2 inches if rain moves in quicker and 4 inches if the cold air can hang on longer)
 
Suffolk County NY, Extreme SE Burlington County in NJ, Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland counties in NJ: Dusting of snow before quickly changing over to plain rain.
 
Mercer, Somerset, Western Middlesex, Western Burlington, Western Camden, Western Gloucester, Western Salem counties in NJ, PHILLY METRO, all NW burbs of NYC including Hunterdon, Warren, Sussex, Western Essex, Western Union, Northern Somerset, Morris, Northern Bergen, Passaic counties in NJ, Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange counties of NY, all of Western New England, DC-Baltimore metro: 3-6 inches of snow, changing to sleet and freezing rain and then drizzle late Saturday night. (3 inches if rain moves in quicker and 6 inches if the cold air can hang on longer)
 
NW Burbs of Philly, NW Burbs of Baltimore/DC,: 4-8 inches of snow ending as drizzle Sunday morning. (4 inches if rain moves in quicker and 8 inches if the cold air can hang on longer)
 
AGAIN, I WANT TO STRESS THAT IF THE SNOW SHOULD MOVE IN SOONER RATHER THAN LATER, THEN YOU CAN EXPECT TO REACH THE HIGHER ACCUMULATIONS ABOVE.  IF IT ARRIVES LATER THAN EXPECTED THEN WE’LL BE LUCKY TO SEE THE LOWER END OF THOSE TOTALS ABOVE DUE TO WARMER AIR WINNING OUT.  I’M BETTING ON THE SNOW TO MOVE IN QUICKER THAN EXPECTED.
 
(Still keeping an eye on Wednesday’s storm too as well as another potential NEXT weekend)

I’ll have more specific details on this weekend’s storm tomorrow, but as of now, it’s looking like snow moves in during the day on Saturday and continues into Saturday night before ending as sleet, freezing rain and then plain drizzle Sunday morning as temps warm above freezing.  So this would be a very wet snow.  Right now I’m thinking 2-4 inches of snow for now before the changeover to any rain as the airmass is pretty marginal as we head towards Saturday night and early Sunday.  Could be a bit more snow if the precip arrives a bit earlier though.  Less snow down along the South Jersey shoreline though as you warm up pretty quickly so you will see mostly rain down there.  Again though, I’ll have more details tomorrow as I wanna to see more model runs tonight.
 
Next Wednesday, 2/25, has the potential to be a much bigger storm. So stay tuned on that!

Snow squalls tomorrow night. Not everyone will see these snow squalls, but if you do, you can expect a dusting to 2 inches at best for all.  This is for tomorrow night into Thursday morning.  It’s possible that Eastern Long Island and Cape Cod could see a bit more though as the clipper re-develops off the coast.
 
Weekend storm is looking likely at this point. The only question remaining is the track.  Could mean the difference between an all frozen event or a snow to mix to rain event.  (yes hard to believe we could see rain but it is a possibility) Stay tuned.  This would be for Saturday night into Sunday.  There are also signs it could last into Monday as well.

Believe it or not I started sweating half way into it just from walking back up that damn hill. Hahaha It really wasn't too bad though. Temp was around 20 degrees at the time.

Another 3-6 inches looking likely again for Tuesday in Monmouth County. More snow south and less north and west.
