More snow is on the way at the Jersey Shore to impact another rush hour.

Unlike Thursday’s light accumulations during the morning rush hour, the National Weather Service forecasts heavier snowfall during the Friday evening commute.

A surface low pressure system over the Carolinas Friday morning will lift offshore toward the northeast and intensity throughout the day, allowing snow to develop, according to the National Weather Service.

The Jersey Shore is in the target zone for the most snowfall, with most accumulations in New Jersey occurring east of the Interstate 95 corridor.

The current National Weather Service prognostication calls for snow to develop during the early afternoon hours, with one to three inches falling in Monmouth, Ocean, Atlantic, and Cape May counties. The higher accumulations are possible in southern areas.

The snow will end from the southwest to northeast tonight, with dry conditions in the forecast after midnight.
