Wind and snow spotlighted in the weather forecast

Wind and snow spotlighted in the weather forecast”

Power outages are possible. Northwest wind 7 to 10 miles per hour. Drivers could experience difficulty driving especially those with high profile vehicles like RV's.

Now, a disturbance in the jet stream will produce a wave of low pressure along that frontal boundary, which will move from the southern Plains into the East Saturday, then off the Eastern Seaboard Saturday night into Sunday. West northwest wind to 8 miles per hour. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent. Winds could gust as high as 43 miles per hour. NAM model precipitation forecast for Friday afternoon, showing continuing rain showers across NJ. Areas well north and west of Richmond have the potential for a coating to under an inch of snow and sleet before the switch to rain. "That depends on how much of that warm air we get which will determine if the snow will be mixed with rain". Otherwise, mostly cloudy, with a low around 58. Accumulations are possible. Northeast winds 5 - 15 miles per hour. Winds could gust as high as 31 miles per hour.

Most areas will see less than 6 inches of snow overnight Saturday.

Sunday: Snow showers likely, mainly before 10am.

A stronger system arrives Saturday with more rain and mountain snow. Breezy, with a north northwest wind 20 to 23 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 33 miles per hour. However, the recent warmth and onshore winds will just make snow tough to accumulate most anywhere. Blustery. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible. Thursday will see highs move into the 50s, but skies will be overcast as another front moves in by the end of the week, bringing a good chance for rain Friday and Saturday, with highs in the mid-50s.

TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy, with a high near 68. A sudden blast of northerly wind - even at speeds lower than we usually see in stormy periods - could cause snapped limbs or branches as trees are more susceptible to this northerly wind direction. Partly sunny, with a high near 71.
