Another weekend, another winter storm warning, but this one’s not as bad…

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Warning for Sunday, February 7th, 2021, beginning at 6:00 a.m. and continuing until 9:00 p.m. But it’s getting to look a little iffy.

With temperatures now several degrees higher than forecast, today’s storm starts as showers or a mix before going to all snow around 8:00 a.m. But its track is uncertain, depending how far out to sea the front drifts… or doesn’t

The Weather Service still predicts the heaviest snowfall, around one inch per hour, at around midday into early afternoon.

Total predicted snowfall is firmed up at 6 inches by the NWS, far less than last week’s storm, and it won’t last as long. But hold on. AccuWeather expects only 3 to 6 inches.

A lot depends on when and if the rain changes into snow. As of this hour, 6:00 a.m., it’s all rain throughout New Jersey, heading into New York.

If snow falls as predicted, without last week’s high winds, Sunday should be a great day for sledding and building snowmen and forts.

RIOC issued parking restrictions, starting Saturday at noon.
