Spotty Icy Conditions before the End of Week Warm-Up

Before we start seeing temperatures rise into the 60's by the end of the week, Old Man Winter has another plan before that happens.

We have a low pressure system across a stalled front to our North, that will be moving West to East Tuesday - Wednesday. There will be spotty precipitation along this front, that will bring freezing rain conditions to extreme Northern sections of New Jersey. This will not be a extreme icing event, however any type of ice accumulation can be very hazardous, no matter how small.

Currently, Northern sections of New Jersey are under a "Winter Weather Advisory" until 1:00pm Wednesday.

NWS Statement: "As temperatures cool the trend will be for any rain showers to transition to a wintry mix with the main hazard being freezing rain. Heading into the day Wednesday, a change to all rain will occur by afternoon as temperatures moderate. Ice accumulations across the area will vary depending on elevation. Additional amounts of up to one tenth of an inch will be possible above 1200 feet or so with less than this at lower elevations."

Brief Warm-up:

Take a good look at the snow pack now as by the end of the week, there won't be much left. The end of this week, we could see temperatures hitting close to 70 degrees in some locations. Mostly, all of New Jersey will be seeing temperatures in the 60's, however we won't be seeing the warmth with clear skies. Scattered rain will be in the forecast along with mostly cloud cover as we the brief warmup happens.

The EURO is the most aggressive while the GFS and NAM get the warmer air suppressed further into Southern New Jersey/Delaware.

As we close out January, Winter looks to reload and we eye Old Man Winter to return by mid February for more wintry precipitation chances!
