Another Wintry Mix Headed for New Jersey

New Jersey is getting ready for another wintry mix on Saturday.

A low passing to the southeast of the state  will bring light-to-moderate snow  across the state on Saturday morning according to a briefing issued by the National Weather Service. Warmer air moves in during the afternoon turning the precipitation to a wintry mix from south to north and then finally all rain.

4-6 inches of snow will fall roughly between I-78 and I-80 while 6-8 inches are expected to fall north of I-80 where the precipitation will stay all snow the longest.

The Route 1 corridor into Burlington County will get 1-2 inches while the shore and most of South Jersey will get an inch or less.  The storm will come to an end by Sunday morning with temperatures in the 40s. Exact amounts are still to be determined as the track of the storm is refined

The storm will be the 3rd winter storm in New Jersey in a week starting with Sunday’s “surprise storm” that left 6-9 inches of snow across south Jersey followed by Tuesday’s storm that left less snow than anticipated. State climatologist David Robinson at Rutgers University tells the Star Ledger this pattern is an “unusual pattern.”  He is surprised at the number of storms in a row  which is more common in the middle of the winter.

ABC Meteorologist Justin Ryan, on the other hand, notes that “Nor’easter and snowstorm season run from Halloween to tax day (in April)” and that anything can happen.

The storm will be mostly a mix of precipitation to our south in Delaware, Maryland and towards the District of Columbia while a low pressure developing south of New England will bring central and northern New England as much as 10 inches on Sunday.
