Come Saturday Morning… Snow, Sleet, Rain, Freezing Rain, maybe Ice Pellets

If you want variety in your weather, 
Saturday is the day for you!
Snow then rain - watch the temperature 
for freezing rain - it's all over by evening.

Total snowfall amounts are hard to predict - 
it all depends on how much rain we get mixed in.

StormTotalSnowRange
PRECIP TO START AS
SNOW FOR ALL AREAS...MAINLY AFTER MIDNIGHT. SNOW SHOULD BECOME
MODERATE TO HEAVY FROM SW TO NE BTWN 4-7AM ...
 1+ INCH SNOWFALL RATES POSSIBLE
SATURDAY MORNING.

FOR THE NY/NJ
METRO AND COASTAL PLAIN...THAT ENOUGH WARM AIR GETS IN ALOFT FOR A
CHANGE TO MAINLY LIQUID PRECIP (RAIN/FREEZING RAIN) FROM MID
MORNING INTO EARLY AFTERNOON. A BIT FARTHER N AND W...THIS WILL
LIKELY BE A MIX OF SLEET...SNOW...AND FREEZING RAIN. WHILE
INTERIOR PORTIONS OF NE NJ...LOWER HUDSON VALLEY...AND SW CT WILL
LIKELY BE MAINLY SNOW THROUGH THE EVENT.
SO A 1-2 HR TIMING DIFFERENCE IN
CHANGEOVER COULD BE A 1 TO 3 INCH DIFFERENCE IN SNOWFALL. FOR THE
NYC/NJ METRO AND COAST MOST OF THE SNOW ACCUM SHOULD BE LATE
TONIGHT INTO EARLY SAT MORNING. A GENERAL 2 TO 5 INCH RANGE STILL
LOOKS REASONABLE THERE...WITH HIGHER AMOUNTS ACROSS NE NJ...LOWER
HUDSON VALLEY...AND SW CT. AGAIN WITH BEST BANDING POTENTIAL AND
WESTWARD MODEL DRIFT ACROSS INTERIOR PORTIONS OF THE SW CT ZONES
AND PUTNAM COUNTY...5 TO 8 INCHES EXPECTED THERE..
Maybe Monday's storm will miss us as the models are trending to keep the storm well to the south of us.
