After a chilly Easter-Passover weekend, April nor'easter may have a lot of rain ...

This Easter and Passover weekend, and into the early part of the new work week, follows a slew of cool, cloudy, and sometimes stormy weather.

Forecasters predict there's a possibility a late Monday or early Tuesday bringing drier rain to the Garden State, and a possibility of snow and ice to parts of Pennsylvania, New York State, and northern New England.

According to the Census, New Jerseyans may anticipate mostly cloudy skies and isolated rain showers Saturday morning and Saturday afternoon, followed by steadyer showers and possibly thunderstorms Saturday evening into the pre-dawn hours Sunday morning.

Temperatures on Saturday may range from the mid-60s in North Jersey to the upper 60s in Central Jersey and South Jersey, before dropping into the low 40s by Sunday morning.

Despite largely mild skies on Easter Sunday, afternoon temperatures will be approaching 50 degrees, and it will feel even worse as winds gust to 20 to 25 mph at times, according to forecasters.

Some areas of frost might extend overnight from Sunday to early Monday morning, according to the weather ministry, with temperatures falling to the low to mid-30s, ranging from 10 degrees colder than normal for mid-April.

Monday is expected to be a partly sunny day with a 30% chance of rain showers in the afternoon and a 90% chance of rain in the evening.

The amount of rain will be influenced by whether or not the coastal storm forms and where it is headed, according to forecasters.

The Mount Holly office, the National Weather Service, said the rain late Monday and early Tuesday "may be moderate to local heavy at times," particularly over eastern New Jersey. An inch or so of rain may fall over coastal areas, with as much as 1/2 to 3/4 inches inland."

According to the weather service, temperatures are expected to be cold enough to dump some accumulating snow in the southern Poconos, and forecasters from high-terrain areas of New York State and northern New England might get hit with as much as 6 to 12 inches of snow "if the coastal storm develops to its full potential."
