Periods of heavy snow could reduce visibility and create slippery conditions throughout South Jersey, the Weather Service said.

Between 2-4 inches of snow is expected to fall in most areas of New Jersey, according to the National Weather Service, which has issued a winter weather advisory for most of New Jersey. However, the western portions of South Jersey remain under a winter storm warning. Both the warning and the advisory will expire at 5 p.m.

 

Because the storm is moving from the east to the west, Atlantic County’s greatest snow challenge will come in the mid- to late-afternoon hours, the National Weather Service said.

 

The snow will taper off to flurries along the Jersey Shore at 5 p.m.

 

Areas along the I-95 corridor could receive up to six inches of snow, the National Weather Service said.

 

The snow will cause “moderate to severe travel impacts by midday,” the National Weather Service said. “Icy roads will remain tonight”

 

Icy conditions could persist throughout the week because daytime highs aren’t expected to reach the freezing mark until the weekend.

 

Expect a chilly wind out of the northwest at 5-10 mph with gusts up to 20 mph.

 

The sun could reappear in the sky on Wednesday, Dec. 11.
