More than 500 schools across the Delaware Valley are closed this morning in anticipation of a morning-long snowstorm that could drop between 6-10 inches across portions of Pennsylvania, South Jersey and Delaware./Weatherbell Analytics, www.weatherbell.com More than 500 schools across the Delaware Valley are closed this morning in anticipation of a morning-long snowstorm that could drop between 6-10 inches across portions of Pennsylvania, South Jersey and Delaware./Weatherbell Analytics, www.weatherbell.com More than 500 schools across the Delaware Valley are closed this morning in anticipation of a morning-long snowstorm that could drop between 6-10 inches across portions of Pennsylvania, South Jersey and Delaware.

Even though it was snowing across the northern portion of Atlantic County at 5 a.m., rain still fell on the beaches of Cape May County.

However, all of the precipitation will change over to snow as temperatures continue their plunge into the lower 20s, forecasters say.

The heaviest snowfall will land across the southern portions of South Jersey with a sharp cutoff of snow levels to the north.

The most recent NCEP HRRR forecast model indicated the snow bands will move south from previous forecasts, shoving the storm’s sweet spot over Cape May County and the southern portions of Cumberland and Atlantic counties.

According to the HRRR, a foot of snow is possible in the areas of greatest snowfall.

However, areas north of Hammonton and Route 206 may receive less than 6 inches. Normally, these areas receive the greatest snowfall.

Monday's snow should begin to end in a north-to-south pattern beginning at 1 p.m.
