SATURDAY - FEBRUARY 17
Precipitation will develop from west to east just after sunset today. Initially, the precipitation will fall as rain, but quickly change to snow across interior sections. Along the coast, the changeover will take longer but should changeover to wet snow by around 9pm.
Snow accumulations will be as follows:
3 to 6 inches north and west of the NJ Turnpike with the I-80 corridor seeing the better chance of receiving 6 inches
1 to 3 inches for areas south and east of the NJ Turnpike, except just a slushy inch or two along coastal section of Monmouth and northern Ocean.
Little to no accumulations along the coast from central Ocean and points south
The storm will be fast moving so all snow will end by about 2am tonight.
Temps will rebound into the 40s on Sunday and then near record warmth will occur on Tuesday and Wednesday.
It is worth mentioning that a very blocky pattern at high latitudes will be setting up at the very end of February and early March. Historically, this type of pattern produces significant storms along the East Coast, so there is a heightened chance of a significant weather event during the timeframe between February 27 and March 10
