Snow Shower Potential Tonight For Jersey

The coastal storm isn't completely done impacting our region. Winds remain gusty today and will through tomorrow.  On top of this, some snow showers may impact portions of the region tonight and early tomorrow morning.  A piece of energy will pivot back behind the storm as it slowly moves east, throwing snow showers back across Southern New England, Long Island, and southwest from there.

How far southwest those snow showers get remains to be seen but coastal sections and places north and east of the city could pick up a burst of snow showers or light snow after Midnight tonight.

Accumulations are more possible across Central and North Jersey -- winter weather advisories are out up in Morris and Sussex Counties in New Jersey for tonight and early tomorrow for the potential of up to three inches of snow.  Coating type accumulations could occur down to Trenton, perhaps south of there.  Philly might get in on that coating but hopes shouldn't be high for that.

The Euro and GFS are in general agreement in keeping most of the snow shower activity to our north and northeast tonight and early tomorrow. A few flakes may fly through Philly late tonight but the odds favor most of this staying just north and northeast of us.
