Two snowstorms are likely An early season punch In the northern and central parts of New Jersey this week, forecasters said.
Both storms will hit on Monday and Wednesday, with a chance of more than a foot of snow during the second storm.
It has been a few years since we saw a storm that could bring so much snow to New Jersey, Meteorologist Patrick O’Hara told the NJ Sunday morning with the National Weather Service in Mount Holly. “It hasn’t been bad in a while,” he said.
The weather service for the storm will release its first snow forecast on Monday morning, but AccuWeather It is already projected up to 18 inches to the north of the state, with the total gradually moving south slightly smaller.
As of Saturday night, forecasters expect 12 to 18 inches of snow in northern Jersey, 6 to 12 inches of snow in central Jersey, and 3 to 6 inches of snow in the southwestern districts of the state. It is likely to rain mostly in the southeastern part of the state.
It may be snowing more than parts of New Jersey for the 2019-2020 season. Parts of a mid-jersey It was less than 10 inches Last winter it was predicted to get 6 to 12 inches on Wednesday.
The exact total depends on the path of the storm, which the NWS says is still very uncertain.
The meteorological service says the northern and western parts of I-95 will see heavy snowfall, and the damage, including power outages, will be significant.
“As for Wednesday’s storm, a combination of strong winds, significant snow and high humidity of snow could have the potential to cause power outages and at least affect afternoon travel,” the meteorological service said.
O’Hara said if the high end of the forecast is snow and the nights are cold, snow will be sticking to a white Christmas.
Monday morning’s storm will be mild, with less than two inches of snow across northwest New Jersey. Areas close to I-95 will see measurable snowfall if the temperature cools enough.
The afternoon trip is likely to be affected, the forecast says, but the impacts will be minimal.
