Been talking about this in the RU-PSU gameday weather thread, but many seem to like separate threads for this type of thing, so here we go, since the forecast has gotten a tad colder/snowier/icier for NWNJ and NEPA and parts of the Hudson Valley, as winter weather advisories are up for Sussex/Warren in NJ and Carbon/Monroe in PA (Poconos) and Orange in NY (and N/W of those counties). The advisory in Warren mentions a potential light glaze of ice, but the advisory in the Poconos and Sussex mentions up to 0.2" of ice accretion, which would be a sheet of ice in many locations if it verifies (these counties mention up to 2" of snow also, although the forecast discussion says this is only really for the northern half of Warren). Outside of these areas under the advisories, i.e., the Lehigh Valley, NW Morris, NW Passaic, northern Hunterdon and the Hudson Valley, we may see 1/2-1" of snow on colder surfaces before a changeover to rain. Unlikely to see any flakes down to the 95 corridor or the coast, where 1/2-1" of rain will likely fall (and areas NW of 95, outside of the advisory areas will see mostly rain).
