If you can stay in this morning and relax, that would definitely be the thing to do on this Saturday. Snow moved in overnight and is now in the process of changing over to rain/mix from south to north.
Temps look to be cold enough so that the far northwest counties in New Jersey and New York remain all snow, but for everyone else… just a wintry mess with sleet to start, followed by some heavy rain. The high in the city will top out in the mid 30s today.
Precip will continue into this afternoon and the good news is, this is a very fast moving coastal storm. We’ll clear out west to east after sunset this evening, and salvage the second half of the weekend! Just be cautious if you’re out and about this morning, as there will be slick spots before the rain takes over. When all is said and done, we’re looking at around 1-3 inches for the city.
It turns blustery behind this departing system, with west winds 15-20 mph and gusts as high as 30 mph Saturday night. Not as windy on Sunday, but still breezy with winds 10-15 mph under partly sunny skies.
We’re still watching Monday for a clipper system that has the potential to bring some light snow to at least part of the area. Right now, the best bet would be south of the city. Either way, it turns much colder with highs Monday only reaching the upper 20s to around 30.
