National Weather Service: Winter is Not Over Yet

Weather: Sunny Sunday; tracking coastal storm this week

Teal=Winter Storm Watch, Purple=Winter Weather Advisory. New snow and sleet accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

They note that in recent years, models have trended northwest on storms' approach to produce several significant snows. This high pressure system is there for much of the winter and, rather than move eastward as most weather systems do, it moves north and south. Forecasters expect the second phase to be more powerful, bringing pockets of wet, heavy snow to much of New Jersey and New York City on Wednesday, along with winds that could gust as high as 40 miles per hour.

As for when the storm arrives, the weather service predicts that the precipitation from the storm will start in southwestern CT and Nantucket around 5 a.m. Wednesday before hitting southeastern MA around 7 or 8 a.m.

WEDNESDAY: Chance for light snow or snow showers, especially along the shore.

The snowfall could pick up toward the afternoon and evening, potentially making for a messy Wednesday evening commute, before tapering off at night. "The [snow] amounts are pretty uncertain because we don't know how close it is going to come". Widespread power outages may develop Wednesday with northeast to north winds gusting 25 to 35 miles per hour at times.




Tide gauge forecast for the Great Egg Harbor at Ocean City.

This will provide a quick break in the action on Tuesday.

The National Weather Service confirmed on Twitter that it was monitoring the storm and evaluating possible threats and impacts of strong winds, accumulating snow and coastal flooding.

Stay tuned for updates as we get more information and a better indication of who will be seeing what in terms of precipitation types.
