News 12 Storm Watch Team Meteorologist Michele Powers says it will be a mostly sunny and mild Tuesday for New Jersey.
HEADLINES: The new year is starting off a bit colder, but drier. Possible snow/rain chances later in the week.
WHAT'S NEW: Drier weather is taking over for now, but there is a chance of snow this week or perhaps next weekend.
While it will be dry and seasonable the next couple of days, temperatures are trending a bit cooler this week and the weather pattern still remains somewhat active. That means if and when these impulses develop into storms, the temperature profile of the atmosphere will need to be watched closely. It's all about 32 degrees and when conditions are right, some of that rain could be ice or snow.
The News 12 Storm Watch Team is tracking a front on Wednesday night and Thursday right now for the possibility of some rain or snow showers. Temperatures look cold enough, especially at night and it looks like broken showers will be around.
Another storm for next weekend is also on the table.
WHAT'S NEXT: With a cold shot of air coming to the region Thursday, temperatures will fall into Friday and the weekend. While this isn't big time significant cold, it's still cold enough that a potential coastal storm next weekend could have some mixed precipitation with it. This is still too far out to nail down exactly what it will be. The exact track and timing will slowly come together the next few days, so stay with the News 12 Storm Watch Team.
