Morning Snow Showers

Snow showers and flurries are darting the landscape this morning across the region, with steadier snows across Central and North Jersey.  Winter Weather Advisories are out along and north of I-195 in New Jersey this morning for a few inches of snow as this piece of energy pivots back through the region in association with the coastal storm.  The aforementioned energy will pivot through the Delaware Valley this morning, bringing snow showers to us as we start the day.

Coating to inch type accumulations are possible on grassy surfaces locally (especially across Northeast Philly & Lower Bucks), with more north and northeast.  Up to 3" of snow could accumulate north of Trenton this morning.  As surface temperatures are right at freezing or just above it in the city, it shouldn't be a road issue locally but it may be enough to unintentionally gunk up the morning commute a bit more than usual.

Snow showers will gradually wind down from north to southeast through the morning as this energy pulls away, with skies remaining cloudy by and large through the day.  It will be brisk and continued chilled outside today (although tomorrow will be much milder).  Highs this afternoon get into the lower 40's north and northeast of the city, mid 40's city and elsewhere.  Winds will be sustained at 15 to 25 mph, gusting higher than that.
