Up to 4 inches of snow expected

Cool Easter Weekend With Rain and Snow

MONDAY: A period of AM snow (1"-4"). However, cloud cover will gradually increase into the late afternoon and we'll trend mostly cloudy to overcast throughout the evening. And, we are tracking another round of winter precipitation. This means that Monday morning's commute will likely be a snowy one. Extreme southern portions of the state will see a coating to up to 2 inches. Hang in there, as spring hasn't fully sprung just yet.

The Weather Channel said that together with planned engineering work and millions heading home after an Easter break, issues on the road and railways are expected on Monday as prolonged April showers arrive. Any mix transitions quickly to all snow after 2am.

No fooling around - April snow absolutely happens in New Jersey! Temperatures plummet to below average readings over the weekend. Winter weather advisories are posted for the entire area to highlight the likelihood of some unwelcome April snow this morning.

The snow could be heavy that morning, 1 to 2 inches per hour between 4 and 9 a.m.

This will help push us into the mid 40s. If only this were the last snow of the season, but that may not be the case either.

Precipitation moves in from the west after 2 a.m. and should end between 8 and 10 a.m.

More clouds and rain showers are expected for Tuesday and Wednesday, with highs topping out in the 50s.

Monday is expected to be colder with a high of 40 degrees and a 60 percent chance of snow.

The NWS forecast calls for a 70 percent chance of rain on Tuesday with a high of 47 degrees and an 80 percent chance of rain on Wednesday. Chilly air returns for Thursday.

High temperatures for the day should be in the 40s. Afternoon highs will struggle to reach the 50-degree mark under a light east/northeast wind at 5 miles per hour. As it does, snow showers will pick up in intensity and become more widespread. It will be cold as well with high temperatures only going up to the lower 30s. This will be a prolonged snow event as the snow is expected to continue through Tuesday night.

Have a great Monday everyone!
