Some snow likely again for New Jersey

Latest post: 5:15pm -- 3/20/2013

Spring officially arrived today-- as per the calendar -- not per Mother Nature -- with temperatures only in the 40s, a brisk wind, and scattered flurries in parts of the Garden state.
And ... more snow is on the way late tonight into Thursday...

Some more scattered flurries are possible for northern and western sections of NJ tonight, otherwise, skies will become cloudy across the rest of NJ and the NYC metropolitan area... with some light snow possible after midnight. Temperatures will drop into the upper 20s and lowers 30s.

Overnight tonight, light snow is likely to continue for many areas of New Jersey, NYC and Long Island -- and there could even be a coating of the white stuff -- especially on grassy areas and car-tops. Main roads and highways will be fine.

On Thursday, light snow will continue in the morning for the Garden state, NYC and Long Island -- and then primarily affect Long Island in the afternoon.

Right now, most weather models are indicating central NJ and Long Island to have the best chance of receiving a total of a coating to an inch of snow...
Radar images overnight and tomorrow will help determine and verify if this, and will need to be monitored for any changes in snow chances and/or snow amounts.

Another post will be issued later tonight, and during the day on Thursday.

Chilly but dry weather is expected Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Radar image is from 3/20/2013 -- 5:00pm
