NEW YORK (PIX11) – A Freezing Rain Advisory will be in effect for parts of the area tomorrow morning as a disturbance moves toward our area. With the region locked with such a cold air mass, there is a chance for freezing rain or drizzle to occur especially in parts New Jersey for the morning commute. While accumulations will be on the light side, any untreated surfaces could easily become a skating rink. Roadways may be tricky to drive on especially across bridges and overpasses.

AC PRECIP

 

As we head toward the middle part of the day, temperatures will go above freezing region-wide and any precipitation that falls would be in the form of rain. Temperatures by tomorrow evening could be in the low to mid 40s. For the northern suburbs, there could be some light snow overnight as the system arrives. Gradually the precipitation will also changeover to rain by tomorrow midday or early afternoon.

On Saturday a stronger system will arrive in our area. Ahead of it, strong southerly winds will allow temperatures to surge into the upper 50s to around 60. The rain becomes steady in the afternoon and downpours will be possible from time to time. Generally 1-2” are possible creating flooding concerns across roadways. With many of the smaller rivers and streams frozen from this week’s frigid temperatures, ice jams could form creating some minor flooding as well.
 
On Sunday skies will clear out into the afternoon. Winds will pick up from the west. Temperatures will be cooler but still on the mild side with highs near the 50 degree mark.
