Forecast for Sunday, February 17, 2013

Our region will be on the periphery of an intensifying low pressure system offshore during the next 24 hours. Tonight, a few snow showers or flurries may brush Eastern New Jersey or Delaware. On Sunday, the winds will be strong and gusty as the pressure gradient tightens. The strongest winds should be in Northeastern New Jersey. Sustained winds of 20 to 30 MPH with gusts of 35 to 50 MPH are expected.

Two storm systems this week may bring mixed precipitation our way. Freezing rain with very light accumulations is expected Tuesday Morning for perhaps the city and points north and west…followed by liquid rain. It should start as liquid rain in most of Southern New Jersey and Delaware. Another round of mixed precipitation is likely on Friday.
