South Jersey escapes with little snow

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

While residents across the Northeast woke up to record snowfalls, people across South Jersey were rather lucky on the morning of Saturday, Feb. 9.

According to the National Weather Service, snowfall totals across Atlantic County ranged from less than an inch in bayside communities to about three inches deep on the Mainland.

Only .8 of an inch of snow fell in Atlantic City and Pleasantville, according to the National Weather Service. In the Mays Landing area of Hamilton Township 2.6 inches of snow fell.

Burlington County snowfalls totals ranged from 2-5 inches.

Areas to the north received much more snow. 

Chatham in Morris County led the state with 14.6 inches of snow.

The Weather Service said stray bands of light snow may cross the area early Saturday before the winds turn to the Northwest to usher in even colder air.

Look for today’s highs to struggle to reach the mid-30s under skies that will turn mostly sunny by the afternoon.

Further north, more than 22 inches fell in large portions of Massachusetts as of Saturday morning.

Gusty winds have downed power lines and left more than 400,000 households without power in that state.
