The National Weather Service has significantly increased its snowfall totals for most of South Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania, according a statement issued by the Mount Holly Forecast Center.

The new totals are more than double previous estimates, according to information provided by Joe Miketta, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

“A band of heavy snow has developed and is moving from west to east in the vicinity of, and south of, the I-95 corridor,” Miketta said. “Snow totals in the 8- to 10-inch range are now possible this afternoon and evening in this area.”

Residents living in the western portion of Atlantic County should expect 2-4 inches of snow, up from a previous forecast snow total of 1-3 inches, he said.

Though the National Weather Service had called for no significant accumulation along the Jersey Shore, it now says 1-2 inches of snow may be expected in coastal areas of Atlantic and Cape May counties.

The snow is expected to change over to sleet and rain later this evening as warm air moves in from the south and temperatures rise.

Conditions should gradually improve, he said.
