A Touch of Rain and Wet Snow ! Later Monday into Monday Night.

Issued Sunday: 01-08-12
Time: 3:30 PM

Hi folks, not a big deal, but something to be aware of during Monday night: This minor wet snow event, is mainly for Southern and Eastern parts of the Delaware Valley, to near NYC

A weak area of low pressure will develop near the Southern Delmarva coast early Monday evening and move ENE and out to sea by Tuesday morning. Some light rain will break out over DE and Southern NJ during Monday afternoon as this system develops. With just enough cold air, this light rain will change to some wet snow early Monday evening, before tapering off by midnight.

It also appears parts of SE PA/PHL, into Central NJ and near NYC, will also see a period of light snow during Monday night. Some light accumulations of a coating are possible in these areas, bt not likely.

Over Central/Northern DE, Southern NJ, and Coastal Central NJ, the precipitation will have a bit more intensity and duration during Monday night. I'm thinking a Coating to maybe 1" of snow accumulation for these areas during Monday night. Any snow accumulations will likely be on grassy surfaces, and mostly just coating amounts in some areas. Temps will be in the low to mid 30's during this event Monday night.

During the overnight hours, temps will drop to the upper 20's, so watch out for some slick spots, if you didn't receive the 500 million tons of salt, they put on the roads from our last 1/4" snow event in SJ !

Take Care,
