A few snow chances over the next week

    Forecasters are monitoring a few snow chances over the next week.

    A rainstorm will move through the New Jersey region Sunday. Locations in the highest elevations of New Jersey and Pennsylvania could see some snow at the beginning and end, although only an inch or less is possible, according to the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ. 

    A weak clipper system with little moisture “may skim” to the north of New Jersey Tuesday and “may remain just far enough to our north not to bring our area any snow,” the service advises. 

    On Wednesday (New Year’s Day), another system with a “higher chance of moisture” is forecast to move through the area, delivering a chance of snow showers, according to the service. 

    Then on Thursday and Friday, forecasting models indicate a coastal storm, although two major models (GFS and EURO) differ with respect to storm track. “Temperatures would be well cold enough for snow,” the service notes. “How much if any snow we get will depend on the track of the system.”

    Regarding the last system, New York Metro Weather advises that there is “way too much uncertainty still.”
