    Now is our winter of discontent — for snow lovers. 

    Not even a flake has fallen at the Atlantic City weather reporting station this winter, according to the National Weather Service.

    And now, the record for the latest snowflake to arrive at that location is in jeopardy. 

    Set in 1966, January 14 is the record for the latest trace of snow, and with none likely through January 12, the record may get broken, according to the latest forecast discussion from the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ. 

    The forecasters note that data for the late 90s at the Atlantic City reporting station is missing.

    After a mild surge of air late week, cold air will once again return for early next week, although at this time, snow is not likely for the Shore.
