Winter Storm Watch Issued for Parts of New England

Winter Storm Watch Issued for Parts of New England

Right now, it appears as though the onset of the precipitation should kick off around daybreak or slightly before.

A wintry mix is expected early Wednesday morning.

A fresh 1-3 inches of snow may fall on part of the Midwest, following the snow from Monday and Monday night.

Get your shovels and snow blowers ready.

Tonight: Snow likely, mainly before 11pm.

Forecasters say a complex storm system will be pushing its way across the Garden State just in time for the morning rush hour, bringing a batch of snow, sleet, freezing rain and plain rain to the region. Temperatures should remain cold enough that snow will be the primary precipitation on Wednesday into the early afternoon. Accordingly, precipitation will start as snow before warmer air moves in and causes a changeover to sleet and freezing rain, and eventually to all rain. Total ice accumulations of up to two tenths of an inch are likely, but this amount may be conservative. While there could be some wintry mix at the onset, this looks like mostly rain for much of the area given the milder temperatures.

Along the immediate shoreline, any snow should quickly turn to rain.

A winter weather advisory has been issued for Denton, Collin, Fanin, Palo Pinto and Parker, Montague, Cooke, Grayson, Jack and Wise counties from 3 p.m. until midnight.

The spot that really looks to luck out, depending how you look at it for this event, is the southern Jersey and DE areas of the region. New snow accumulation of less than one inch possible. Back in 2002, we only saw a measly half-inch during the second month of the year, which is a far cry from the dark days of February 2015, when the city was pummeled with 64.8 inches of snow.

According to the Boston Globe, the storm system will dump heavy, wet snow before transitioning to rain at some point late Wednesday. While parts of the shore could see temps spike near 40 degrees, parts of northern CT and the valleys will stay near or below freezing the entire day.
