What To Do
Areas Affected: Northwestern Burlington; Gloucester; New Castle; Salem; Camden; Western Monmouth; Cecil
A compact but powerful nor’easter will skirt the New Jersey
coast this afternoon before heading toward Cape Cod this evening.
It will produce periods of heavy precipitation. All locations
along and west of the Interstate 95 corridor are vulnerable to
heavy snow, with the greatest uncertainty within 20 miles east of
Interstate 95. Otherwise, there is very high confidence that this
storm will make travel difficult or nearly impossible at times
late this morning and this afternoon across much of eastern
Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey, basically from near
Philadelphia, west and north to the New York state border and
beyond. Highest snow accumulations will be in the hilly areas.
Unnecessary travel is not recommended today. Thereafter,
communities will need tonight and Thursday morning to dig out.
Caution is advised for those with heart problems as over exertion
removing wet snow could prompt a heart attack.
* WHAT…Heavy snow. Additional snow accumulations of 3 to 6
inches, with localized amounts up to 8 inches, are expected.
* WHERE…Portions of central and southern New Jersey, northeast
Maryland and northern Delaware.
* WHEN…Until 3 AM EST Thursday.
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS…Plan on difficult travel conditions,
including during the morning commute. Be prepared for
significant reductions in visibility at times.
A Winter Storm Warning for snow means severe winter weather
conditions will make travel very hazardous or impossible. If you
must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your
vehicle in case of an emergency. The latest road conditions for
the state you are calling from can be obtained by calling 5 1 1.
