New Jersey Winter Storm Warning

We're watching our next coastal storm that will affect New Jersey late today, and especially tonight and early tomorrow. Snow will not arrive in far southern counties (Camden, Gloucester, Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland and Salem) until 6, maybe 7 o'clock. Shortly after, it will spread rapidly across the state during the first part of the night. Temperatures today - just in the low 30s, and mostly in the 20s tonight.

There is some hint that there could be a changeover to sleet and rain along the south coast from LBI or just near there, on south to Atlantic City and Cape May. That's why I am only going for 3 to 6 inches down that way.

However, even when the snow tapers off to flurries and ends tomorrow, expect at least 6 inches near the Delaware River, 6 to perhaps 10 inches elsehwere. Highs Wednesday 27 to 32 with blowing and drifting snow.

Partly sunny and still windy Thursday, and only in the 20s.

We should be okay for Friday. We may have another period of snow or just flurries as we head toward later Saturday and Saturday night.
