Thursday may prove to be a mostly-wet affair, but local residents may see some of the first snow flakes of the season (after a brief snow shower moved through some towns over the past several days).
There is no snow accumulation expected, according to the National Weather Service, however the agency is calling for a chance of snow in the morning and midday, mixing with rain after 1 p.m., then gradually ending. It will then become mostly cloudy with a high near 42 degrees.
Cold tonight, then as some milder air starts to arrive during Thursday there is the potential for some snow mainly north/west of I-95. Any accumulations will be very light. It then turns even milder into the weekend. #pawx #njwx #dewx #mdwx pic.twitter.com/RRDtILbY1f

Looking toward the weekend, Saturday will also be sunny with a high of 54 degrees, the NWS said, however rain will move in Sunday. The forecast calls for showers after 1 p.m., and otherwise mostly cloudy conditions with the potential for strong wind gusts. The high temperature, however, will be 60 degrees.
