Sunny but cold weekend on tap; snow possible Sunday night

Sunny but cold weekend on tap; snow possible Sunday night

At the most, meteorologists say the Wilmington area could see 2 inches, with less than an inch falling in Kent and Sussex counties. "On Saturday, we'll have a high in the mid-20s and a low of 13", Mr. Hendricks said.

On Friday, the National Weather Service's Upton office said the entire region is under a winter weather advisory, including eastern Suffolk County, which had originally been placed under a winter storm warning.

Precipitation should be mostly rain or snow starting late Saturday night, however some icing is also possible.

That low won't intensify fast enough to become a major snowstorm before it heads to the Canadian Maritimes, but with a little cold air in place, a swath of snow will be laid down in the Northeast through Friday. It will be blustery, with a brisk northwesterly wind persisting for at least the first half of the day.

Total snowfall for the season to date in Newark, as of February 28, was 20.6 inches, or 2.4 inches below normal.

Friday's snow storm was late to arrive, but it's still on the way. Snow accumulation of 4 to 8 inches.


Goodbye spring-like temperatures, snow is in the forecast tonight through Saturday afternoon.

"I love it", said Woodland Park resident Roger Nick as he cleaned the snow off his auto.

But after a look at this weekend's weather forecast, you just might want to plan on sleeping in.

Friday: Snow likely before noon, then a chance of snow showers, mainly after 2pm. Northwest wind 15 to 17 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 28 miles per hour. That system, which will move from the northern Plains, spread into the Great Lakes and then barrel its way east, could potentially bring heavy snow to this area beginning Monday night.

Sunny skies will return on Saturday, with a high near 24.

Despite cracking record highs over the past few weeks, dry and unseasonably cold weather will suppress average highs about 15 or 20 degrees below the seasonal norm for March.
