A storm system forming over the Southern Plains will intensify and slowly track up the western side of the Appalachians, likely tracking though Ohio and interior Northeast through Thursday, and will bring a prolonged period of unsettled weather from tomorrow afternoon through early Thursday, a track like this means mostly heavy rain but a little push of cold air tonight and tomorrow will likely lead to initial wintry mix for northern areas
Tonight will start clear with increasing clouds later on, low temperatures falling into the mid 20s to low 30s
Tomorrow the warm front with the storm will be pushing north towards the area, and thus precipitation will begin to move north as well, Central NJ points south should start as rain and remain rain through Thursday however the Northern half of NJ NYC parts of LI up through New England should have just enough cold to start as snow and sleet.
The precipitation will quickly turn to all rain for the whole area tomorrow night as the storm intensifies and south-southeasterly winds get cranking, bringing warm air in fast, there will be a lull in between the warm front and main part of the storm Wednesday morning with just drizzle and showers then as the intense storm system passes through the interior NE heavy rain and strong winds will fill in by Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning, embedded thunderstorms are likely to enhance rainfall amounts and SE winds will be 15-30 mph with gusts over 50 possible in thunderstorms
