Weather in New Jersey: There are a few inches of snow plus a freezing rain and coastal flooding forecasts for Sunday

Another winter storm is expected to happen on Sunday afternoon, as it travels from the southeast to New England, with its use in the northwesternmost part of the country expected.

According to the forecast, the snow totals in Sussex County will be greatest further north and west.

Forecasters predict ice development to a tenth of an inch thick, more than enough to make driving dangerous.

On Sunday night, a winter storm is expected to fall by several inches, with accumulation up to five inches in Sussex County, reaching New Jersey on Sunday, 1/16/22, and Monday morning, 117/22.

The I-95 corridor in the center of the state might have up to two inches of snow before the storm heads northeast and the precipitation transforms to a wetter wintry mix Sunday night.

Before temperatures warm up above freezing, forecasters said roads might become slippery.

By the time the storm departs late Sunday or early Monday, the majority of the precipitation will have been switched on rain.

This graph from AccuWeather shows the expected precipitation from Sunday night's storm as it approaches New England. Most of the snow will miss New Jersey to the north, though Sussex County might receive up to five inches, while much of the country is expected to get a wintry mix.

AccuWeather's forecasters predict that the majority of the state will endure a hefty mix of precipitation, with the southern coast getting all rain while a sliver of the state in the northwest corner would get mostly snow.

The storm is expected to produce strong sustained winds between 20 and 35mph, with gusts that could reach 50mph, especially along the coast. The entire Jersey coastline, including in Delaware Bay up the river to about Salem, will be under a gale watch Sunday evening into Monday.

The weather service has issued coastal flooding alerts for Middlesex, Monmouth, Monmouth, eastern Essex and eastern Union counties, between Saturday and Monday.

On Sunday night, a winter storm is predicted to drop several inches, with accumulation up to five inches on New Jersey, the United States, and Britain.

After the cold, attention turns to a storm system that will bring rain, snow, and coastal flooding late tomorrow into Monday. Read our full briefing
