3:00 PM | Accumulating snow threat remains for tomorrow night

Discussion

Accumulating snow is on the way for tomorrow night in the NYC metro region as well as across much of northern New Jersey. Weak high pressure will lose control of the weather around here early tomorrow as it shifts off the east coast while a low pressure system heads northeast from the southeastern part of the country towards the Virginia Capes. The air will be only moderately cold for this system; consequently, precipitation that begins during the late afternoon hours could be in the form of a mixture of rain, sleet and snow. However, once the low scoots to the coast and our winds shift to a more northerly direction, colder air will move in and any mix will change to all snow early tomorrow night. Accumulations are likely by late tomorrow night in the 2-4 inch range as temperatures drop to just below the freezing mark.
