SNOW UPDATE: Tapers off overnight, bitterly cold Wednesday

    As of shortly before 8 p.m., here is the latest snow update for New Jersey from the National Weather Service.

    The center of the storm system was about 200 miles off the Delmarva Peninsula and drifting out to sea.
    Snowfall rates in the band along and near the I-95 corridor will diminish gradually this evening and overnight as it drifts southeastward.
    An area of moderate to heavy snowfall located over eastern Virginia and vicinity will lift northeastward and should impacts parts of South Jersey during the night.
    Most of the snow totals have fallen in most places (except for southeastern counties), but additional snow will fall during the next several hours.
    The back edge of the snow should not reach the coast until around daybreak.
    Additional snowfall amounts of an inch or two are possible in northwestern NJ and two to four inches are possible along and near the I-95 corridor. The southeastern counties will pick up most of their snowfall overnight (totals in the four to eight inch range.)
    Expect bitterly cold wind chill values and blowing snow with a brisk north to northwest wind. Blowing snow will remain a problem after the snow ends.
