Cloudy, wet weather returns Sunday; heavier rain early next week

The best chance for periods of steady and even moderate snow will be between 10 PM Sunday and 3 AM Monday. There is a chance that this could start off as a rain/snow mix given temperatures should be warming into the mid 30s Monday afternoon. A coating to 1 inch in the city is expected, with 1"-2" for Central New Jersey.

More rain to end the week: Another potent storm system brings a threat of some heavier rain late Thursday (Valentine's Day) and Friday. Lows Monday morning will be in the upper 40s. While your morning commute Monday will likely be decent, the evening commute Monday evening will be a mess. "This round of snow will bring some substantial snowfall accumulations to the area with our southern counties (Franklin, Adams, York and Lancaster) picking up 2-4" of snow.

The storm will arrive overnight Monday into Tuesday with flurries before snow becomes steadier sometime around 8 a.m. Snow will change to freezing rain at times after noontime before changing back to snow and then to sleet and rain as the high temperature climbs just above the freezing mark excepts areas farthest north.

Freezing rain shut everything down.

To the south of the snow zone, a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain can create slick road conditions from the mid-Mississippi Valley, including around St. Louis, to the central Appalachians.

"Strong and gusty easterly winds may cause low visibility in blowing snow before the snow changes over to freezing precipitation", Environment Canada said. Warmer air will surge into the region late Tuesday.
