Likely First 2022 Snowfall to Arrive Early Monday Just as Ground Begins to Chill, Little Accumulation Expected
BY: Yaker Biegeleisen
Those hoping for a historic blizzard when they awake tomorrow morning (and this may include the new City Hall administration, which would likely seek to prove its snow removal efficacy) are in for some disappointment—although, judging by dramatic media reports and DSNY preparations, they seem to be expecting a storm of the century.
A storm is moving in from the south, hitting Lakewood and the surrounding areas tomorrow in the predawn hours, likely leaving them with some accumulation. As it heads up the coast, we will likely begin to see snowfall around 8:00 am.
However, as we have reported in our weekly weather forecast, we warmed up significantly throughout Shabbos and Sunday, and we only plummet into the 20’s in the overnight hours. By the time the snow gets here, to the extent that it does, the ground will not have cooled enough for accumulation. In addition, the air will be dry, making accumulation even less likely.
Caution is still advised for the morning commute, as the powdery snow comes down during the morning hours.
