The Run Down

Ok, today was the last day of the warm spell and now the cold air will make a come back. A lot of snow cover was taken out in this melt down but I still 4.25" on the south side of my house and 9" on the north side (at 1,000 feet). Lower elevations and south facing terrain have lost snow cover already, and now people can once again see their lawns.

There is a storm on the way for the beginning of the week (double shot), but it's not looking very favorable on the models for NW Jersey right now. The first part rolls through Monday morning starting as snow to mix to rain with very little accumulation if any. The second piece comes through with much colder air but the models bring it right to our south producing a nice dump of snow for south Jersey.

Part 2:

Now keep in the mind the event is still 3 to 4 days out and thats plenty time for the models to change (as we have seen most of this year). Just keep checking back in. The minute things switch I'll be the first to let you know.

Little heads up, here a map for the end of the week.

It's still way to far out to decide track, precipitation type, and the specifics of the event. But there will be a late week storm, and I have a very close eye on this one.
