snow Traffic on the Black Horse Pike near the Hamilton Mall encounters heavy snow blown by gusty winds Friday morning.

Forecasters at the National Weather Service in Mt. Holly say the region will receive 1-4 inches of snow from the storm system that moved in this morning.

A winter weather advisory remains in effect until 11 a.m. for “far southern New Jersey,” portions of Maryland`s Eastern Shore and southern Delaware.

Heaviest snow of 2 to 3 inches should be mostly from central and southern Delaware through far southern New Jersey. Snow accumulation will range between 1 and 4 inches, tapering to less than 1 inch from northeast Maryland, to Wilmington, Del., to near or just north Atlantic City.

Visibility will be reduced, causing widespread hazardous travel conditions early today and require defensive driving for safety. Plan for longer than normal travel times.

Strong west northwest winds will develop shortly after the snow ends during mid- or late-morning, the weather service advises. Temperatures will be around 30 during the snow.

A winter weather advisory means that snow will cause travel difficulties.
