A winter weather advisory is in effect until 6 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 9 for the region, according to the National Weather Service in Mt. Holly, with snow accumulations of 1 to 4 inches expected.
Periods of rain will change to snow this evening; and snow will continue through the night, NWS said.
Hazardous travel is expected overnight.
“Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving,” said NWS, adding that the announcement applies to Atlantic, Cape May, Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester, Salem, and southeastern Burlington counties.
The advisory comes while a major winter storm is in progress from northern New Jersey through New York state and New England, NWS said.
As of 3 p.m. snowfall of 2 to 3 inches had already occurred in parts of far northern New Jersey. Treacherous travel conditions are developing in northeast New Jersey and will spread into much of eastern Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey early tonight.
Blowing and drifting snow will become to be a problem, especially across north central and northwest New Jersey, the agency said.
