Wintry Week Expected (Mar 2-6)

We have a lot to talk about this week. A mild Wednesday sandwiched between snow on Tuesday and Thursday. In like a lion!

Monday should reach the mid to upper 30s statewide for high temperatures. Clouds should gradually clear with stiff NW winds. Hopefully those winds will help evaporate melting snow/ice because overnight lows are going down into the single digits and teens—increasing the chance for black ice.

Tuesday should reach the low to mid 30s for high temperatures. Overcast skies are likely with light southerly winds. Light to moderate snowfall is expected afternoon through evening. Only light accumulations are likely and it could end as rain from south to north. Overnight lows should range from mid-20s (NWNJ) to mid-30s (SENJ).

Wednesday should feature lingering rain from Tuesday’s disturbance. Temperatures should reach the mid-40s (maybe even 50s for extreme SENJ) which should feel very mild after recent weather. Overcast skies with on-and-off rain showers seems likely. Winds should be light out of the W/NW before overnight lows fall to around 30 statewide.

Thursday has my interest. Highs should reach the mid-20s to lower-30s with light NW winds and overcast skies. Significant to heavy snowfall is possible later in the evening once the rain changes back over to snow statewide. Overnight lows should fall into the single digits and teens. I’ll have an article out later today that speaks to more detail. I want to see the 12Z guidance sweet before fully committing.

Friday will likely be the coldest day of the week with the disturbance and front through. Highs should stay just below freezing with stiff W/NW winds. Skies should be mostly sunny once any morning cloud remnants move out to sea. Overnight lows then fall into the single digits and teens.

An early look at the weekend indicates temperatures more seasonal for March and dry conditions. Long-range WeatherTrends360 algorithms and most model guidance still indicates a turn towards mild temperatures around the March ~10 period. We’re almost there!
