"A fast moving system likely brings accumulating snow Saturday night with the bulk of it ending by daybreak Sunday", forecasters wrote. Snow is expected to continue into Thursday afternoon, especially along the Interstate 15 corridor. Tonight will be blustery - northwest wind gusts as high as 30 miles per hour - with a low around 10. Snowfall will increase in the mountains Wednesday night, and winter storm warnings and advisories will be in effect from Wednesday evening to Friday morning.

Wednesday: Partly sunny, high near 29.

"The next chance for any significant precipitations looks to be Monday morning", the NWS said.

It'll shift to sleet in the afternoon and overnight before clearing the area early Sunday.

After a handsome start to our weather day today with mostly sunny skies, we will see increasing cloudiness through the day with highs in the mid-40's. Rain late. High: Mid-upper 40s.

Not only will we receive more snow, temperatures will drop once again to below zero Saturday night and not warming up much at all for Sunday and the start of the week.

The forecast for the weekend calls for sunny skies with highs in the 50s.

On Tuesday, the European model was projecting as much as 8 inches of snow across parts of New Jersey this weekend, and the American GFS model was projecting virtually no snow in the Garden State.

Plowable snow (several inches) possible but too soon to say how much.
