Snow about to arrive in New Jersey

Latest post: 4:15pm -- 3/18/2013

After a delay in the storm for much of today, snow is moving out of Pennsylvania into the Garden state as of this post, and we expected light to moderate snow to fall for the evening hours across much of the state, including NYC and Long Island...

As we move into tonight, the snow will change to rain for southern NJ around 8pm, and then for central NJ,  New York City and Long Island between 8pm and 9pm, and then for northern and western NJ around 10pm...
Snow accumulations will range from a coating to an inch of snow for southern and central NJ, as well as NYC and Long Island, mainly on grassy areas and car-tops, before the change-over to rain.
Across northern and western NJ, accumulations will be between 1, to as much as 3 inches.

For the overnight hours, everyone will see rain... as temperatures rise into the upper 30s in all areas.

On Tuesday, rain will begin the day, and then end by late morning, perhaps as some light snow, as the entire storm leaves.  It will become windy on Tuesday, with temperatures starting out around 50, then fall through the 40s throughout the day.

Wednesday marks the first day of spring -- but temperatures will only top out in the lower 40s, and there could even be a rain or snow-shower around.

The rest of the week, for Thursday and Friday will continue to see below-average temperatures, and a continued chance for passing rain and snow-showers.

The weekend will continue to stay chilly with partly sunny skies.
