Daily Forecast - Thursday, March 22, 2018
Quick Forecast: Partly to mostly cloudy. Breezy at times with highs near 40° and lows near 30°.
Detailed Forecast: Good morning, everyone! I hope everyone fared well with yesterday's nor'easter and escaped with not bodily or property damage. Icy sidewalks and roadways are likely this morning so please use caution when driving. Be sure to pass along your snowfall totals and roadway conditions in the comments section of this post.
Much fairer weather is expected across the region today as the low pressure system responsible for yesterday's snow moves further out to sea. Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected with temperatures this afternoon warming above the freezing mark and into the upper 30s. Temperatures this evening are expected to drop below freezing mark so please be cautious for icy conditions as today's snowmelt will likely refreeze.
Conditions should remain fair across the region over the next few days as high pressure settles to our northwest. Highs near 40° are expected on both Friday and Saturday with slightly warmer temperatures possible on Sunday. Clouds may increase on Sunday as a storm system passes south of the region and out to sea. While expected to pass well south of the area, this system bears watching as a slight change in track could raise some eyebrows.
Looking ahead to next week, warmer weather is expected as a trough moves into the western states. Temperatures in the 50s are possible by the middle of the week, however, this may only stick around for a brief period of time. Model guidance suggests a trough moves back into the northeastern states just in time for the weekend.
Thanks for reading and have a great day! ... See MoreSee Less
11"-13" in Tewks up close to Morris County - the north side of Fox Hill range.
Is the weather App still available?
Water Street in Milford probably had a solid foot of snow
Wonderful projections Bryan. Your no nonsense approach is beautifully reliable. Stay safe and warm. GOD bless
Shout out to local township and county plowers! I drove from Flemington to Alexandria last eve about 10:30 pm and the roads weren’t great. By my return trip this morning at 7:30 the roads were pristine. A lot of hard work all night clearing that snow!
I think we got around 8” or so in Raritan township. People on a Flemington Facebook page were commenting on how totals fell short. I told them to Follow Hunterdon County Weather. He was right in the money with snow totals
About 10" in High Bridge. This is great snow for snowballs and forts! Bryan thank you for your accuracy. And as far as Sunday's weather potential....my eyebrows are tired of being raised! 😁 Let's enjoy Spring.
Stewartsville, 9-11 inches, depending where I looked
Pipersville PA, measuring in feet not inches, lol.
10” in Washington Twp, Morris County about 1.6 mi N of Pottersville @400’ elevation.
Commute from Annandale to Berkeley Heights was faster than normal! Great road conditions. About 12+ inches in Hunterdon but maybe 6 in Union County.
At 5pm yesterday we had 7" in Washington. Not sure if more accumulated overnight. My husband has a heart condition & the flu, so driveway & sidewalks will have to wait!
Be careful shoveling this morning. Already did my mother in laws and very heavy. As well as the roads still being very slick
I think our totals were between 6and 8, maybe a touch more by this morning, in Raritan township at the top o' the hill.
Looking at my deck and watching my dogs, I can tell you here in Holland on 519 outside of Milford there is more than a foot
Over a foot in Annandale!
11 inches on the hill in Union Twp overlooking Spruce Run
We got over 12" outside of Milford up by Rt. 579.
Final accumulation in Tewksbury was about 6 and 1/2 in. You were extremely accurate for my area Bryan. Excellent job as usual
12"- 14" in High Bridge......
about 8 inches in millington and thanks Bryan!!
10" in Raritan Township just north of the hospital
Over the boot snow amount. 12-14" in southern Clinton TWP/annandale
Not that much on Rockafellow Mill Road , Readington Twp.
Plows just came by here a few minutes ago in Raritan Township
10:30 pm Weather Update & Observation Post
Steady snow continues to fall across much of the region this evening as the back edge of the storm slowly, but surely approaches from the west. I decided to change radar modes to better illustrate what’s going on this evening.
As you can see precipitation across eastern Pennsylvania (left side of image) is beginning to break up as the best dynamics start to move offshore. Further to the east and into our area widespread snow continues to fall. At closer inspection you can see bands of yellow moving through the Garden State. These are heavy bands of snowfall rates of one inch or more per hour.
As of this time a heavy band of snow stretched from northern Warren County southwestward into eastern Northampton County. Another more impressive band of snow is currently located from West Milford southwestward through Hunterdon County and into Bucks County. A third swath of heavy snow has set up shop just east of Interstate 95 with another right along the coast.
Conditions are expected to slowly improve over the next three to six hours as the nor’easter finally begins to move out to sea. Additional snow accumulations are expected through at least midnight in the Hunterdon County area. This will allow hazardous conditions to continue across the region through the overnight hours. Unnecessary travel is highly discourage so please just stay home tonight.
Please continue to use the comments section of this post to provide observations, photos, and road conditions. I’ve heard a number of school have already called for delays and closures so if you could pass along any information you hear I would greatly appreciate it.
Stay safe! ... See MoreSee Less
Remember how I always talk about rising and sinking air with mesoscale banding. Here is a terrific look at it in our area. Like I said in the post, there’s two distinct bands of heavy snow. One over Warren and Northampton Counties with another from Bucks County into Passaic County. Heavier precipitation rates are indicated by higher reflectivity aka the greens and yelllows. Now look between those bands, see how there is nothing. And when you compare it to the image on this post you can see that there is far less between the bands than just 30 mins ago. That’s result of air sinking as result of the strong lifting air within the bands. These are the type of bands that lead to huge difference in accumulations from town to town. I know I’m geeking but that is some cool stuff!
Overwhelmingly delays (vs closed) as of 6:40am or so. itv.news12.com/school_closings/school_closings_mobile.jsp?region=NJ
90 min delay for Flemington schools. Just got plowed a few minutes ago. Thinking they will close....
Formally from Frenchtown now in Matawan NJ, are we still in for more snow down here.
State executive offices are open normal time tomorrow but most courts have delayed openings
Will there be wind as the storm moves away?
You were pretty spot on all along as always! Nobody else agreed but you held strong and you were right! Great job!!
Photo taken ~10pm 10-12” near Spruce Run. Still snowing. No wind all day.
The roads by my house are not plowed I’m in Annandale. The schools said a two hour delay but I really think the school in the morning and say no school . How’s everyone’s roads by them ??
Thanks Bryan for the updates through out the day... get some rest...you deserve it
King wood township, this photo is about 1.5 hours ago. Still coming down! Measures 12 inches!
10:30. Had to move to a meter stick when the ruler disappeared! 😂. Alexandria Township up the hill from Little York
Thanx for the alternate view. Still have accumulating snow in three bridges. Opened front door to clean car off, saw it was still comin down, went right back to couch.
2 hour delay for north hunterdon and vorhees. They said they will be assessing the roads in the morning so that may change to closed if things are still bad.
Didn't get a good picture, but we're around 9 inches in Flemington Boro.
Took a while but about a foot in Tewksbury. Still coming down. ❄️☃️
Kingwood Township 4 hours ago and still snowing
I just measured about 12.5" of snow in my deck (Milford, 11:15 pm). I hope it stops snowing soon 😞

5:30 pm Weather Update & Observation Post
Steady snow continues across much of the region this afternoon as a strong area of low pressure churns off the Delmarva Coast. Intermittent bands of heavier snowfall rates continue to move through at times with snowfall rates exceeding one inch per hour.
Thankfully it appears that we have been fairly lucky in terms of the winds this time around. Local weather stations have reported only a couple gusts of 25 mph or greater this afternoon. The strongest winds have been observed along the coast where an onshore flow is creating issues for our beaches.
Short range model guidance has indicated that we should begin to see some weakening after 7 pm or so this evening. Light snow showers are likely to continue for a few more hours with conditions finally improving from west to east during the early morning hours. An additional two to five inches of snow is expected between now and the end of the storm. Localized heavier amounts are likely due to the convective nature of today's storm.
Hazardous road conditions will persist through the evening and into the overnight hours. Unnecessary travel is strongly discouraged, so please stay home if you can! Also, if you are planning on shoveling snow this evening please pace yourself. Nicknamed "Heart Attack Snow" this heavy snow is known to put a great deal of stress on your body.
As you would expect with a late-season snowfall, surface temperatures and elevation have played a major role in accumulations. Hunterdon County is no stranger to this today as northwestern portions of the county have seen snow accumulate much easier than their southeastern counterpart. Even as the snow falls, portions of the area have already seen melting. It will be very interesting to see how the valleys and hills faired in the county when all is said and done.
I will continue to provide updates in the comments section of this post with an updated post sometime around 8 pm or so.
Stay safe everyone and please continue to use the comments section of this post for observations. ... See MoreSee Less
Don’t be surprised to the ending of this storm delayed. Models have had a tough time handling this system and our low is stalled off the Delmarva.
I just posted an update on the page now. Sorry its been a crazy day at home today!
At 6pm, perhaps 3-4" on grass, maybe 2" of snush on roads in northern Bridgewater (near Bedminster); @ 300' elev. Was 30F all day, just ticked up to 31F. Glad it fizzed out but destroyed HS spring break (clawing back 2 days). Oh, well.
Thanks for the update - it's "raining" snow here in High Bridge. My husband went out to shovel for the second time today and said it's a lot heavier than it was earlier. Be safe!
We had a good 10" in Bloomsbury as of an hour ago. Still coming down. Ran out of steam after an hour and couldn't finish shoveling Round #2. The first round took 2.5 hours. I'll sleep good tonight! 😴
Snow is Poodle thigh high in Delaware Township and still coming down.
Over a foot in holland and still going strong
11” Alexandria Township up the hill from Little York Tavern - 6 pm

Still snowing hard in Flemington. GREAT packing snow. Kids had a blast in it.
A little over 6” in High Bridge, steady snowing
Thanks so much for the updates
It's still pouring down rain in Easton. Probably have about 8 to 9 in so far
Ugh, I hope it stops soon. We have already cleared away 8.5" and that was at about 4 pm ⛄️😭
Clay you said you have about a foot there in holland?
Easily at least a foot or a little more on Pt. Mountain in Lebanon Twp
Still snowing steadily in Holland....about a foot of snow already!
9 inches @ 9:30 pm in Clinton Twp (live near NHHS). And it’s still snowing.
close to 10 in warren glen and still coming down pretty steady.

1 PM Weather Update & Observation Post
A heavy wet snow continues to fall across much of the area this afternoon as a strong low pressure system moves up the Mid-Atlantic Coast. Snowfall rates of half of an inch to an inch per hour have been reported across the area with recent radar observations beginning to show heavier bands developing over southern New Jersey.
In the coming hours these bands should move northward and into our neck of the woods. Snowfall rates in excess of one inch per hour will be possible at times. A combination of heavy wet snow and strong winds (25-30 mph gusts) will make for hazardous travel into the evening hours. Please stay off the roads and avoid traveling for the remainder of the day.
Conditions are expected to slowly improve from west to east this evening as the coastal low finally moves away from the region. My forecast snowfall amounts remain as is with widespread four to eight inches of cement, I mean snow. Localized higher amounts are likely due to the convective nature of this storm and the mesoscale banding that continues to develop. I would not be shocked to see a few areas exceed a foot of snow.
Thank you all for being patient as I waited to make another post while this storm developed. As I expected it seems that marginal temperatures and March’s powerful sun are wreaking havoc on accumulations across the area. Like I said in recent days, if the precipitation intensity is not heavy enough we could see some snow melt.
One last thing! Please use caution and take your time shoveling this snow. This type of snow is called “Heart attack snow” for a reason. Pace yourself and don’t go overboard. Most of it will melt on Thursday anyways!
I’ll have more updates in the comments section of this post. Please continue to send in your observations! ... See MoreSee Less
For the weather junkies out there - use this radar for intensity. It doesn't show precipitation types, but its one of the best (free) radar to see where the heaviest snow is. Much of the region is in the moderate to heavy (dark green). sirocco.accuweather.com/nxssa_r1_h_500x620d/r1h/inxr1kphla_h.gif
Looks as if the winds have not materialized as expected, thank goodness! We may still see breezy conditions through tomorrow but they shouldn’t be as oppressive and long duration as expected.
I’ll likely have an update around 4:30/5pm. Honestly there isn’t too much to report on as much of the area is seeing the same intensity snow (.50-1.50” per hour rates).
Here is the latest run from the short-range model we use known as the HRRR or High-Resolution Rapid Refresh. Shows snow tapering down some early this evening before reforming again late. We should see showers continue into the early morning hours.
Looked at radar image of the east coast and it looks like the center of storm is still over land, is this possible?
Bryan, any thoughts on when the snow will stop?
Been snowing most of the day in Stanton with little accumulation, flakes varying in size. Tiny steady ones right now, maybe an inch or 2 on the ground. Thank you for your tireless work!
It's sticking to the roads around Pittstown. In the last 15 minutes, it went from a misty snowfall to significantly larger flakes. At this rate, the 2 inches we already have is going to grow quickly.
Cement is good analogy. Hubby says, God has put it there and God will take it away. We're inside for the duration.
I drove from Alexandria (513 was a mess) all the way through to Flemington and the difference was crazy!! Snow covered roads until I hit the hospital.
It’s still light and icy up here in Bethlehem Twp Iron Bridge Road. When do you see it becoming the heavy heart attack snow? I want to get out there and clear the light stuff ahead of it. Thanks!
About 4" on the Delaware Township /RaritanTownship border as of an hour ago, but it's coming down a lot faster now.
Steady snow in Flemington. Good packing snow for kids to make snowman (they are having fun!). Roads near Voorhees Corner are finally starting to be covered.
I'm in Kingwood on Oak Grove Rd. I found the snow light and easy to shovel over here, just got in after round 1.
Been coming down all day on the top of Jugtown Mountain. Probably around 6”.
Has not stopped nor stopped sticking in Kingwood. It's been close to white out since we woke up this morning...
Snowing hard in Easton. How about 4 inches so far at least.
Thanks for the serious yet comical update ! Love it !
When will the winds start tonight?
About 8” near Spruce Run Reservoir. 3pm. No wind at all. About 1”+/hour.
Not heavy and wet on top of reigel ridge in Holland. Powder..
Flemington barely an inch.
Mother Nature has been pretty generous here in Lambertville and she’s not relenting!!
Starting to snow more heavily in Tewksbury
Picking up speed and larger flake size in Tewksbury, starting to stick
