Weather March 10, 2017:
Rick Cuttrell weather report highlights 8:40 am:
Snow has begun over northern NJ and is spreading into the NYC area at this hour. The snow will be a bit delayed in the Neptune area but will arrive between 8am and 9am after a brief period of rain. The storm has slowed a bit in its forward progress. Snow will taper off from west to east, continuing across coastal sections until around 2pm. t will allow our area to be under the more enhanced precipitation rates as the storm deepens rapidly in the nearby coastal waters.
Although the snow from the storm will taper down and end in the early to mid afternoon hours, some localized intense snow squalls will develop in late afternoon and early evening. In areas that experience these bands, there will be brief intense snow rates with limited visibility and a quick accumulation of snow.
Most likely snow accumulations are as follows (keep in mind that snow amounts will be less on road surfaces):
Central NJ including Neptune/Monmouth/northern Ocean – 2 to 4 inches
The overall hemispheric pattern is very conductive to a major winter storm next Tuesday. Computer guidance continues to consistently display a powerful east coast storm will heavy snow and strong winds. Details will be determined in the coming days but this has the potential to be a high impact weather event.
