The National Weather Service says tomorrow’s nor’easter will deliver between 1-4 inches of heavy wet snow over Atlantic County.
Residents living in coastal and near-mainland sections of Atlantic County should expect to receive 1-2 inches, according to a statement issued Tuesday, March 5 by the National Weather Service Mount Holly Forecast Center.
Residents living further inland should expect to receive 2-4 inches of snow, the weather service said.
An inch or less of snow is expected to fall in Cape May County, the National Weather Service said.
The storm will begin late Tuesday night when an area of low pressure will move off the coast of Virginia and quickly intensify, the National Weather Service said. The low pressure will slowly move east-northeast through Friday.
It will rain most of the day on Wednesday, before snow begins falling during the evening hours.
Mostly rain is expected in South Jersey, but interior portions of Delaware and Pennsylvania could receive up to 6 inches of snow.
The National Weather Service warns that a prolonged period of onshore wind flow will produce moderate tidal flooding along the Atlantic County and along Delaware Bay during the periods of the high tide on March 6-7.
The National Weather Service has issued coastal flood watches for those areas.
Wind gusts are expected to exceed 60 mph along the South Jersey coast with 35-45 mph gusts as far inland as Pennsylvania.
A heavy wet snow combined with strong winds could bring down trees and power lines, the National Weather Service said.
No river flooding is expected, however.
Sunny skies should reappear on Thursday after the storm passes. Look for a warming trend with mostly sunny skies through the weekend.
