A fast-moving storm system will graze the Tri-State area tonight through early Monday morning. Snow will fall throughout the area at the onset tonight, but snow will change to a wintry mix in the city and along the coast, with a change to rain before daybreak at the shoreline and in central and southern New Jersey. Meanwhile, north and west of the city, temperatures will remain cold enough for all snow. However, with the moisture source remaining south of the Tri-State, snow totals will be on the low side, even where no mixing with rain occurs. The precipitation wraps up by sunrise on Monday morning, and since it’s a holiday, the impacts of this weather on the Monday morning commute will be lower than usual. Some sunshine will return on Monday afternoon, and it will briefly turn milder before cold air rushes in again on Monday evening. The shortened workweek starts cold and dry, but another system will deliver a wintry mix to the region on Wednesday.
