Conversational snow likely tomorrow at the Jersey Shore

    It won’t be even close to a big deal, but to many, any snow in the forecast for April likely generates sullen pouts and perhaps some tantrums. 

    While the activity will be enough to spark a conversation (“look outside, it’s snowing”), that’s the extent of the impact.

    A clipper system will pass through the area tomorrow, coinciding with a cold low pressure system, according to the National Weather Service.

    That combination will generate precipitation, with the greatest chance of seeing snow instead of rain at the Jersey Shore during the early morning and evening hours when temperatures are lower and the sun angle is not a consideration. 

    High temperatures tomorrow will be in the 40s. The day will begin with temperatures in the 30s and end in the 30s, dropping down to the 20s overnight. 

    At the Jersey Shore, the National Weather Service is calling for little to no snow accumulation, with any mostly on grassy or colder surfaces. Any remaining precipitation will likely taper off by midnight tomorrow. 

    Winds will increase later in the day tomorrow, possibly gusting up to 45 miles per hour at the coast. 

    The sun returns for Sunday, and it will remain breezy and cool with high temperatures in the 40s.
