Major Snow on the Way: Alan’s Weather Blog
It’s hard to believe after high temperatures as warm as 51 in Atlantic City and Wrightstown yesterday, that we have a major snowstorm coming in for today. But, that’s the story.
Much, much colder Arctic air is filtering in with temperatures settling in the 20s and even some teens.
Once the snow begins, before it ends during the early morning hours later on, there will be at least 6-10 inches. There’s even a slight chance of a foot in spots, especially closer to the shore.
There may be a bit less than that in far NW Jersey by late tonight. The snow today will becomes heavy, at times, this afternoon and evening. As I said, temperatures will settle into the 20s and teens with a gusty wind.
Windy and bitterly cold tonight with heavy snow early, but it will taper off during the early morning hours late tonight with single digits to low teens.
Returning sunshine, but frigid tomorrow. Highs will be no better than the teens. The wind will make it feel much colder.
There may be some flurries to start Thursday, then partly sunny and still very cold. Thursday’s highs just in the lower 20s.
