    Forecasters expect light snow to develop in the southern Jersey Shore during the late overnight hours Wednesday as a wave of low pressure grazes the area. 

    A “predominate weather” map issued by the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ indicates snow impacting coastal Ocean County to Cape May and no precipitation to the north at 7 a.m. Wednesday. 

    But amounts will be light, according to Gary Szatkowski, meteorologist-in-charge at the Mount Holly office.

    “Most likely under an inch,” he tweeted. “Reasonable worst case scenario crawls up to two inches.”

    For the afternoon, NOAA forecasts cloudy skies throughout the region.
