Weekend Storm Not Expected to Be as Strong As Originally Forecasted
With the wind chill, it feels like 5°F today. Get used to it: frigid temps will endure all weekend.
The powerful storm that was expected to hit the Middletown area starting tomorrow looks to have weakened and the National Weather Service (NWS) is predicting much less snowfall to cover our area.
Hazardous weather is predicted for travelers. Judging from how much accident havoc was caused by a light snowfall on the Garden State Parkway Monday night, motorists are advised to take heed.
According to the most recent predictions from the NWS the storm is expected to arrive Friday afternoon and sprinkle between a half-inch to three inches on the ground.
The snowfall may not be as bad as what was originally predicted but the temperatures over the next few days will remain at or below the freezing mark. Starting Friday the high is expected to be around 25 before dropping down near 19 degrees tomorrow night.
Saturday's high temperature is predicted to be near 29 degrees before hitting a low near 15 on Saturday night. Temperatures will begin to rise on Sunday with a high of 34 and a low of 22 before hitting highs near 40 to start next week.
