Quick-moving snowstorm on South Jersey’s doorstep

A quick-moving snow storm has already reached the greater Philadelphia area and should cross into all of South Jersey by the time the mid-morning office blues work in, according to the National Weather Service. Though updated snowfall totals are in, a pocket of warmer weather could keep Cape May County and extreme eastern Atlantic County from feeling the full brunt of the storm./NWS A quick-moving snow storm has already reached the greater Philadelphia area and should cross into all of South Jersey by the time the mid-morning office blues work in, according to the National Weather Service.

A quick-moving snow storm has already reached the greater Philadelphia area and should cross into all of South Jersey by the time the mid-morning office blues work in, according to the National Weather Service.

Though updated snowfall totals are in, a pocket of warmer weather could keep Cape May County and extreme eastern Atlantic County from feeling the full brunt of the storm.

South Jersey: snow trouble on Tuesday

The National Weather Service says almost all of Atlantic County has between an 80 and 90 percent chance of receiving at least 2 inches of new snow by noon. Thankfully, most of the new snow will fall after the morning trip into the office. However, those who start work at noon will travel to their jobs in the worst of conditions.

Dozens of Atlantic County schools have already canceled classes for Tuesday, Dec. 10 because of the impending storm.

South Jersey snow totals

According to the National Weather Service, 1-3 inches of snow will fall over the eastern portion of New Jersey. Cape May County should get the least amount of snow because the first portion of the storm could start as rain.

The central and western portion of Atlantic County could end up getting between 2-4 inches of snow, the National Weather Service said.

An area from Hammonton and through the I-95 corridor could get 4-6 inches, the Weather Service estimates.

Winter storm warnings remain in effect through 6 p.m. for the western portions of Southern New Jersey and for the I-95 corridor of Pennsylvania. A winter weather advisory remains in effect through 6 p.m. for everywhere else in South Jersey.

South Jersey snow: when will it end?

Today’s snowfall should end during the afternoon hours. Though the sun should reappear tomorrow, the current arctic blast will keep daily high temperatures in the 30s through Friday, the National Weather Service said.

No snow, but a coastal?

While there is no snow forecasted for after today, South Jersey residents could be facing another coastal storm on Saturday, Dec. 14 and Sunday, Dec. 15, according to medium-range weather models. Temperatures should be too warm for snow, but South Jersey could receive 1-1.5 inches of rain over the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
