Very different, that last storm packed a bigger punch on the coast than anticipated and we saw the effects. Very unfortunate, people are finally getting their housing structures dried and bacteria resistant and as much as 4" of water floods yet again. Mother Nature is packing punches to the northeast, hopefully we get more in the form of snow!

An area of light snow is currently moving east this evening. Traffic cameras already confirm snow is sticking to the ground and roadways in Salem County and across Delaware. Any locations south of the AC Expressway can expect light snow overnight with it coating the ground and the roads. Slick travel can also be expected overnight but should be clear by the AM rush.
If the Northwest winds set up right we could see some bay effect snow on the Jersey Cape and in Southern Delaware as water temps are still pretty warm in the bay. Probably won't amount to much, but we might be able to see a coating if everything sets up right. The 0z NAM supports this: http://bit.ly/ryxXke
0z GFS has big rain storm for entire area then turns it to back end flurries bout 80 hours out.. haha yea i know.... and then after that at hour 138 it has a low riding up the coast not very stong but enough to lay down a good few inches..were see about that next few days..hour 180+ tho is back to SUSTAINED COLD AIR for most of the run until hour 380..
The 18z GFS has hinted at a period of light snow Christmas Day Night into the 26th. I do believe this could be a plausible situation, and temps look ok as of know. It looks as if it could still move a little further north without hurting temps, but we shall see. Ocean temps could also play a role. Of course it's only the 18z GFS, so we'll see if any other models can jump on board.
