If you like playing the outside of the Roulette table then you’ll like the odds of a 2-inch snowfall this week for South Jersey, according to the National Weather Service forecast.

That’s because there is about a 50 percent chance that portions of South Jersey will receive a snowfall that’s greater than 2 inches through noon on Wednesday, March 26, according to the National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center.

For those aren’t Roulette Wheel fans, outside bets are 50/50 and include red or black, high or low and odd or even wagers.

If you are betting for low snow totals on Wednesday, the National Weather Service odds appear to be in your favor.

There is an 80 percent chance of 1 inch or more snow, according to the Weather Prediction Center.

There is almost no chance – one percent – of a 4-inch snowfall, the Weather Prediction Center said.

Storm timing

A coastal low is expected to move off the east coast during the day on Tuesday, March 25. Though the storm will be large and powerful, it shouldn't get close enough to the Jersey Shore other than to produce a limited amount of snowfall, the National Weather Service said.

Snow will begin falling during the late-morning or early-afternoon hours and intensify during the evening and overnight hours.

About 2-4 inches is expected. Greater snow amounts will occur near the shore.
