A bubble of high pressure sitting over the region and will give us a clear sky and light winds early tonight. This is going to allow temperatures to plummet. Some clouds will start to arrive later tonight which will slow the drop in temperatures. Lows tonight will be in the teens. There will still be some dim sunshine early Saturday but then it will become mostly cloudy. Some snow seems likely later Saturday through early Sunday as a storm system cuts south of our area. With this system cutting to the south, we’ll have a cold weekend. Highs will be in the 20s Saturday and then will struggle through the 20s to the lower 30s on Sunday. This snowfall will accumulate mostly 3-6” near to south of Route 22. 1-3” is likely in most of the counties in the I-80 corridor with less the farther north you get. Because of this snow, a winter weather advisory for the counties along the Maryland border until Sunday morning. It’s going to be close to advisory level of 3” for the counties just to the north.
Early next week will be seasonably cold. Monday and Tuesday will feature a mix of clouds and sunshine with highs in the 20s to the lower 30s. A weak disturbance may bring some flurries Wednesday; otherwise, it will be chilly with a mix of clouds and sunshine. Highs will be in the lower to middle 30s. Thursday will be a little colder with clouds and sunshine and highs in the 20s to near 30. Temperatures will stay near average levels into the following holiday weekend. The next disturbance can bring some snow showers or flurries Friday with highs in the lower 30s. We’re going to stay seasonably chilly into the following holiday weekend.
