    Snow is likely as a weak frontal system passes through the Jersey Shore tonight, forecasters say.

    But accumulations will be very light.

    According to a Special Weather Statement from the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ, there will be two rounds of precipitation. 

    “Light snow is expected to spread into our region from the west for this evening, then there should be a break in the snow overnight before snow showers return for Friday morning,” the statement says. 

    The forecasters expect an inch or less of snow for the entire event at the Jersey Shore. 

    Still, they say to be careful.

    “if you will be going out tonight or Friday morning, use extra caution,” the statement advises. “Be prepared for slippery conditions on area roads, walkways, and parking lots.”

    The National Weather Service continues to monitor the chance of snow Sunday night into Monday. The latest model guidance suggests accumulating snow, especially for southern shore areas.
