Last Second White Christmas?

North Jersey might see a dusting of snow tonight as a few scattered snow showers will try to make their way into the area just in time for Christmas eve. You can see simulated radar for tonight below..

Looks like a few areas can get lucky, but by no means is this a wide spread event. After tonight the next 5-10 days look like this temperature wise..

This is due to the pattern shifting like I mentioned last week. Notice the models still have blocking high pressure over the top and cold underneath (great winter pattern)..

The polar vortex will be trapped over eastern Canada. We might rival the cold January of 1994 with a set up like this. Here is what the temperature departure from normal was back then..

Now all we need is some southern jet stream energy to phase along the east coast like I have been talking about..

Some models show it but out to sea (January 1st)..

Lets see how this plays out over the next few days and if a stronger storm ends up being projected. We are still a week away. In any event, Merry Christmas! Tomorrow will be a cold day with hopefully a dusting of snow on the ground.
