South Jersey snow fans rejoice!

Those of you who were disappointed because Mother Nature snubbed her nose at us and failed to deliver a white Christmas may have something to smile about just in time for New Year’s Day, according to local and national weather forecasters.

A fast-moving low pressure system is poised to move to the south of South Jersey during the day on Saturday and leave anywhere from less than an inch to up to three inches of snow, depending on which forecaster you believe.

The snow should begin early in the morning and stop later in the day and during he evening hours. Sunday will be sunny with temperatures in a seasonable upper-30s.

The total snowfall for South Jersey should be 1-3 inches, according to AccuWeather. 

The National Weather Service in Mt. Holly predicts an inch or less of snow in Atlantic County with more snow falling on the other side of Route 206, the traditional South Jersey snow dividing line.

The Weather Channel is calling for a rain and snow mix during the day on Saturday, resulting in less than an inch of snowfall in South Jersey.

While the storm won’t produce a blizzard, it will give South Jersey snow lovers something to slide around in and talk about for a day or two at least.

While though there are no immediate snowmakers poised on the horizon in early January, temperatures will be favorable for snow through at least Jan. 20.

Forecasters say average daily highs will remain within a few degrees above or below 40 degrees through the period.


Weather for fun: Forget, Saskatchewan

The area was named after the providence’s first Lt. Governor,  Amedee E. Forget, who must have made a lasting impression on the people of the prairies.  The weather for Saturday is a not too forgetful 18 degrees F. with about two inches of snow.
