STORM WATCH: Warm, but rain conditions overnight; snow possible Thursday
Temperatures will rise overnight across New Jersey, but some more snow may also be in the forecast.
Storm Watch Team meteorologists say that it is still too early to know exactly how much snow will be coming, but the storm could pose problems for Thursday night and Friday morning’s commute.
Tuesday night will continue to see rain and foggy conditions. Temperatures will rise overnight into the upper 50s, and could reach above 60 sometime after midnight.
The rain is expected to end by the Wednesday morning drive. Once the sun comes out, temperatures will rise into the mid-60s.
It is possible for temperatures to make a run for the record set in 1985 of 68 degrees. Wednesday night will see partly cloudy skies, followed by an increase of clouds in the overnight hours. Overnight lows will be around 41 degrees.
Thursday is expected to start off mostly cloudy with high temperatures in the low-40s.
The winter precipitation is expected to begin by the evening hours. The snow could be steady, but light, with some accumulation possible. Overnight lows will be around 34 degrees.
Temperatures will rise a bit by Friday morning, and the snow will turn to sleet and ice.
This could cause potential icy road conditions for the Friday morning commute. Roads and walkways may become slippery and dangerous. As temperatures warm throughout the day, the precipitation will turn into rain.
Daytime highs on Friday will be around 43 degrees, with overnight lows expected to be around 27 degrees.
