We have been speaking with our weather partners concerning the weather system that is anticipated to bring us heavy rain today and tomorrow. Based on the information that we have reviewed, the heaviest rain is anticipated to fall later this afternoon/evening and into early Sunday, at which point we may experience a brief break before it picks up again. The overall weekend rain totals are estimated at 1.5-3.0” with the majority of the rainfall occurring this evening into the overnight. It is possible that some localized areas could see over 4”. We will be monitoring this issue as it relates to flooding.
The powerful winter storm will NOT be visiting Morris. The morning data from our weather partners suggests that we will miss the brunt of the incoming storm. We may experience periods of light snow this evening possibly into Wednesday AM. The snowfall accumulations are estimated at a dusting to 1”.
The latest data that we have reviewed from our weather team suggests that snow will be possible on Tuesday beginning around 12pm. It will likely mix with rain in some areas throughout the afternoon with most melting on contact. This may turn to all snow by 8pm with snow lingering through 4am Wednesday morning. 1-3 inches of snowfall is expected at this point with melting likely causing final numbers to be lower. We also caution you to keep an eye out for wet pavement overnight into Wednesday as temperatures drop, roadways may become icy. The overall confidence level of the forecast data is still low. We will continue to monitor and provide updates.
We are continuing to monitor the forecast data that suggests the arrival of a powerful nor’easter Tuesday into Wednesday. We're still seeing some model variance for the area, but the general track at this point suggests that we're looking for scattered rain and snow beginning in the late afternoon on Tuesday, changing over to all snow around sunset and ending Wednesday morning. Snowfall totals look to be around 2-4 inches but just a slight shift to the west could bring heavier snow. We will take a look at the model tomorrow and provide additional information.
