News 12 Storm Watch Team Meteorologist Michele Powers says New Jersey will see light rain and light snow for the Monday morning commute.
WHAT'S NEW: Tracking a weak low that will develop and slide south overnight into Monday. This will spread some light rain and even some snow showers across New Jersey and the tri-state area. There is not a lot of moisture tied to this system and there still is some uncertainty as to how far north this precipitation falls. With some drier air in place, some of the northern most counties may see very little, especially north of New Jersey.
WHAT'S NEXT: Drier weather settles back in for a few days this week. Temperatures will be normal to slightly above with highs in the 40s, lows in the 20s and 30s. Watching a much larger storm still for Friday. With the track of the low staying more inland, this will result in warmer temperatures. This looks to be a mainly rain event with some wind starting late Thursday and through the day on Friday. Sunday's model guidance has sped the storm up a bit and we may not see any affects besides some wind for Saturday. Stay with the News 12 Storm Watch Team for more details through the week.
Temperatures will be borderline for some snow north of I-195. Snow that falls will be wet and most likely will melt on pavement. Colder surfaces may see a dusting up to about a half inch at the most. ​
If there is any stronger banding, there may be a quick burst of snow and maybe up to 1 inch on colder surfaces.
Showers will come in after midnight and exit by around sunrise. There will be wet road conditions for the early Monday morning commute. Temperatures will range from about 30 degrees in Sussex to near 40 in Atlantic City. Winds will be southerly and light.
FORECAST
MONDAY: Snow early for the commute, with sunshine toward the end of the day. Highs in the 40s and lows around freezing.
TUESDAY: Mostly to partly sunny. Highs in the 40s and lows around freezing.
WEDNESDAY: Sun and clouds. Highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy with a rain/snow mix possible late. Highs in the 40s and lows in the 30s.
FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy with a rain/snow mix possible. Highs in the 40s and lows in the 30s.
SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy with a rain/snow mix possible. Highs in the 40s and lows in the 30s.
SUNDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs in the 40s and lows around freezing.
