South Jersey Weather: Rain tonight, first look at the snow this weekend

Meteorologist Joe Martucci's forecast for Tuesday night Dec. 5 

Spotty rain showers through the evening will turn into periods of steady rain overnight, as a cold front pushes through the Northeast. The rain will taper back down to showers early tomorrow morning, ending during the morning commute.

You can lose the umbrella for the rest of the day, though. Sunshine will fill in behind the front, as temperatures get up to around 50 degrees. 

We stay seasonable on Thursday, but a potent cold shot will make us struggle to get above 40 degrees all weekend! Friday afternoon - Saturday afternoon will be our next shot of snow. Our first map is out. See where your town lies.

This is my first newspaper but not my first forecast for NJ. I graduated with a B.S. in Meteorology from Rutgers. Two TV internships gave me a taste for the newsroom. Then, after nearly 4 years in private NJ weather, I'm forecasting South Jersey for you.
