Clumps of falling snow visibility a challenge on Fire Road in Egg Harbor Township Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 7. Less than 10 days since Hurricane Sandy impacted South Jersey with devastating results, an early season nor’easter delivered the area’s first snowfall on Wednesday, Nov. 8.

Large white flakes began to fall across Vineland and Bridgeton around 11 a.m. according to National Weather Service radar. The snowfall moved east as the day progressed.

By noon, several areas across South Jersey were reporting a coating to an inch of snowfall, mainly on grassy surfaces.

By 3 p.m., heavy snowflakes were falling as far east as Route 9, but melting on contact with the ground.

However, the National Weather Service predicted that cooler overnight temperatures could lead to 1 to 4 inches of snow accumulating on the ground before the nor’easter pulls out to sea early Thursday morning.

Despite the snow, the Weather Channel wasn’t afraid to drift out a flurry of good news for the weekend.

Mainland high temperatures should peak out near 50 degrees on Friday, reach 57 on Saturday, and climb to 62 on Sunday with no chance of rain, according to the Weather Channel.

And, of course with those temperatures, there’s even less of a chance for more snow.
