After Sunday’s surprise snowfall that dumped 9″ in Beachwood, snarled traffic along the Garden State Parkway in Ocean County and throughout South Jersey, and resulted in a Seaside Heights boardwalk snowman, forecasters say that more is on the way for Tuesday.
AccuWeather.com is calling for 3-6 inches along the I-95 corridor, with 1-3 inches to the north and south, including the shore.
NBC40 meteorologist Dan Skeldon says the storm will be a “quick-hitter,” passing through during the daytime hours.
“Develops during the morning commute, ends by the evening commute. Heaviest midday,” Skeldon wrote on his Facebook page.
We’ll then clear out on Wednesday when an arctic high pressure system invades, according to forecasters at the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ.
“Temperatures really take a downward trend through the end of the week, with Thursday looking to be the coldest day of the week,” a National Weather Service forecast discussion notes. “May not reach much above the freezing mark [in much of the area].”
By Saturday, a “slight moderation” is expected, when another potential system “looks to skirt by the coast” and send some moisture into the area during the evening hours into Sunday, according to forecasters.
