Monday afternoon weather update for NJ metro

Latest post: 5:50pm -- 1/13/2014

Weather update:
After a mild day... a weather system is on the way...
The track of this, guided by the jet stream, will move west of our area, therefore bringing some rain, not snow on Tuesday.
The wet weather looks to arrive between 4 and 5am... and should end between 1 - 2pm. Temps tomorrow are expected to reach the upper 40s to around 50 degrees.

The jet-stream continues to carve a path for storms to form ...
However, the northern part, or "branch", of the jet-stream, will be the more dominant one, which will not favor heavy snow or rain for NJ metro through the end of this week

Wednesday will be partly to mostly cloudy.
Some sprinkles or flurries are possible, particularly for western and northwestern New Jersey. Highs reach 45 - 50 degrees.

Another disturbance looks to pass just east of the area for Thursday, but may leave behind some flurries or sprinkles once again. Highs on Thursday turn chilly, topping out in the mid- to upper 40s.

Friday is expected to be partly sunny, with highs in the 40s once again.

By the weekend, the weather models are at odds as to how far south the jet-stream will "dip"...
The position of this can either mean some light snow or rain for Saturday, or a more significant precipitation-maker.
The prediction of the position of the jet-stream this far in advance is difficult to determine. Future model runs will help.

More updates during the week.
