Another round of snow and mixed precipitation is headed our way prompting a Winter Storm Watch for Thursday into Friday.
- 25 degrees in White Plains, 25 degrees in Central Park, 23 in Poughkeepsie, even near 30 on the Jersey Shore. That means this comes in as all snow Thursday morning and then stays all snow. This is a snapshot at 2:30. Where's the changeover line? South. Look how far south of Toms River we start to get a little bit of mix going on here.
Because the low is trending a little bit further south, we get all cold air and almost all snow for Thursday and on into Friday. Now, this is Thursday at about 9:30 in the evening when things start to slim out a little bit here, but will continue a little bit on into Friday.
So let's look at another long-range model here just to show you what we're talking about. This is 5 o'clock on Thursday morning. This is Thursday at 6:00 PM. This is on into Saturday by about-- you know, we're getting into 12:00 AM here before all of this moisture is tapering off.
So some of the models are saying this could be a Thursday and Friday event for us. Some of them haven't lined it out. Some of them tapered off early on Friday. But right now, I'm thinking it may extend a little bit into the day on Friday as well.
So just want to show you on Monday we're talking about one more system. But here's the good news about Monday. By the time we get into Monday, we're getting milder temperatures, so there's going to be a rain-snow mix out of that.
So, I know this is an unusual banding for us to go 5' to 10', but this isn't all snow event. Starts as snow stays as snow across the area. The higher totals will be in higher elevation west of New Jersey.
This is the one time because of this banding, the way the band of moisture works, that we're not getting more in those northern and western areas. We're getting it right through the middle of New Jersey and into the park probably about 6 inches of snow the way it seems right now.
