Northern Ocean County will receive 1-2 inches of snow Wednesday afternoon and evening while the southern half of the county will receive 2-3 inches, the National Weather Service predicted early Wednesday morning.
In the revised forecast, much of Monmouth County will also receive 1-2 inches, while northern Monmouth County and points north will receive less than an inch. For those traveling south, the Atlantic City area is forecast to receive 3-4 inches while Burlington County and Philadelphia are on par with Brick, with 1-2 inches.
A winter weather advisory is in effect from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday. According to the advisory, snow and sleet will overspread the region during the early to mid afternoon and change to all snow by sunset. There could be a few isolated periods of heavy snow before the quick-moving storm exits in the evening.
While only a small amount of snow is forecast to fall, the storm’s arrival in time for the evening commute could make rush hour difficult for motorists, the National Weather Service said. Drivers are being cautioned to take things slow and be mindful of reduced visibility.
