Meteorologists are tracking a potential nor’easter that could result in rain or snow falling in New Jersey this Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving.
The track of the storm is still up in the air, but the possibility for a heavy rain or a snow event is likely, forecasters say. The National Weather Service activated its Hazardous Weather Outlook on Saturday, warning of a coastal storm that could produce either snow or rain changing too snow the day before Thanksgiving, impacting holiday travel.
“Please stay tuned to the latest forecast as we draw closer to Wednesday,” the advisory said.
The NWS’s official forecast calls for rain moving in Wednesday, then rain or snow Wednesday night. Forecast models have shown coastal sections of New Jersey seeing primarily a rain event, while inland areas – especially through central New Jerseey – seeing the possibility of accumulating snow. The forecast low for Wednesday night is 32 degrees, complicating the forecast by making the potential rain-snow line up in the air.
