Brief updates will be posted below on the light snow event currently affecting the region. Yesterday’s forecast discussion for this and the following storms can be found here.
2:30 PM: Over the last 2 hours, widespread moderate snow spread into northern NJ and NYC, with light snow falling elsewhere. Temperatures have slightly cooled down due to the precipitation, remaining unseasonably chilly for a mid March afternoon with temperatures in the mid 30s in northern NJ/SE NY and upper 30s further east. The snow is sticking to mostly non-paved surfaces in northern NJ under the moderate band.
Snow is expected to continue falling through this evening, with accumulations in northern NJ from a coating to 2 inches mostly on non-paved surfaces. Other parts of the area are expected to see light snow with minimal accumulations. Chilly temperatures are expected again for Sunday, but the break between storms won’t last long until the next storm affects the area on Monday with more accumulating snow expected as the winter-like pattern continues.
