The threat of several inches of snowfall on Tuesday, Dec. 10 has prompted the National Weather Service to issue a hazardous weather outlook for all of New Jersey and Delaware along with portions of eastern Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Fast but potent

According to the National Weather Service Mount Holly Forecast Center, a quick-moving snowstorm will reach portions of South Jersey shortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Snow will fall heavy at times before tapering off late in the afternoon and before the evening rush hour.

An east-to-west band of snowfall of “several inches” is likely across most of South Jersey, the National Weather Service said.

Other weather models indicate a large portion of South Jersey could receive 3-6 inches across a band or area that covers Cumberland, Salem, Atlantic and northern Cape May counties.

South Jersey extended outlook

After a prolonged period of rain and snow, sunshine should return on Wednesday, Dec. 11. However, the cold air that will usher in Tuesday’s snow will remain in place. As a result, daily high temperatures will struggle to reach the middle 30s for the rest of the week. South Jersey mid-December daily high temperatures are usually in the middle 40s.
