Like a case of the sniffles that doesn’t want to go away, more snow is on the way for South Jersey, the Middle Atlantic States and New England. And it all begins in just a few hours and right after the clock strikes midnight, the National Weather Service said.

South Jersey Saturday snow

Yes, today’s 45-degree afternoon temperature combined with a bright sunny sky to erase most if not all of our recent snowstorm’s lasting reminders. However, a new batch of flakes may cover the ground just in time for your morning cup of coffee, the National Weather Service says.

An Alberta Clipper system will dive to our south later today and begin to strengthen off of the Middle Atlantic States and over the Atlantic Ocean. However, this storm will move too quickly and strengthen too late in order to provide anything other than a Saturday nuisance for South Jersey.

Yet again, more snow is on the way, however.

According to the National Weather Service, about a half an inch of snow could fall before sunrise. Then during the day, 1-2 inches of additional snow could fall by mid afternoon.

Because Saturday’s high temperature is expected to reach 36 degrees, some snowfall may mix with rain and keep storm totals down.

Heavier snowfall totals will come to northern New Jersey, New York City, Long Island and New England, according to the National Weather Service.
