By you have been seeing the weather projections for this weekend’s storm changing. This change is occurring due to the storm moving more of the East coast.
Here is the latest briefing from the National Weather Service in Mount Holly.
A winter storm is still expected in our area from Friday Night through late afternoon on Saturday.
A Winter Storm Watch has been upgraded to a Winter Storm Warning for theAtlantic Coast counties of New Jersey and Delaware.
The storm effects will really depend on where you live.
The Atlantic Coast and Coastal Plain of New Jersey and Delaware will see the bulk of the storm.
There remains potential for significant snow accumulations of 6 inches or more near the I-95 corridor and portions of interior southern New Jersey and Delmarva. However, confidence is high that the highest snow totals will be near the Atlantic coast of New Jersey and Delaware.
The National Weather Service says that we could see 12 to 18 inches are expected across the coast and coastal plain but at this time it’s looking more like 8 to 13 inches.
Confidence in the northwest extent of the highest storm total snowfall is low, owing to continued variability with the forecast track of the associated surface low. A sharp gradient to lower amounts is anticipated near or just north/west of the I-95 corridor.
I-95 corridor is looking at 5-8 inches of snow with 2-6 inches as you move North-West
Strong winds are anticipated from late Friday night through Saturday night which will include winds gusts as high as 50 mph. The strong winds may cause blowing and drifting snow and very low visibilities, especially near the New Jersey and Delaware coasts. Wind chills will be well below zero Saturday night, with values below -15° possible in the southern Poconos and far northwest New Jersey.
Minor coastal flooding is possible Saturday morning along portions of the NJ and DE coasts, including Delaware Bay.
The bottom line, there is still a ton of change in this forecast. Depending on if the storm moves out to sea will determine the snow totals.
