Rain will begin this evening and change to snow overnight. The sooner the flip, the more the snow. The ground is warm so expect melting and snow to only accumulate on grassy areas, cars, and trees… during the heavier snow it will accumulate some on roads.. as temps fall roads will cover in areas that are receiving more than 3 inches of snow. Snow will be very heavy with wind and possible Thunder! Snow will end by early afternoon for VA and in the evening for New Jersey! Some spots in New Jersey will likely get upwards of a foot of snow and see close to 15 inches, especially in the higher elevations. If colder air is able to sink further south sooner than it looks now, areas around DC and Northern VA may deal with a heavier accumulation. The opposite is also true!
