Steadier snow will fall after midnight and end just by sunrise. Computer model shows snow overnight tonight. (Courtesy: temperatures dipping just below the freezing mark, some roadways and sideways will get slick, so use caution when traveling out Friday morning. Snow amounts will generally be around 1”-2” with highest snow totals in New Jersey along the coast in Ocean County where around 3” could accumulate. The 2nd low pressure system is a different animal altogether. There is plenty of moisture associated with this system coming out of the Gulf of Mexico which will cause major problems in Georgia and the Carolinas with significant snow and ice. For us, the biggest question has been how far north will the moisture get to our area. Models have been inconsistent for several days on whether the snow will affect us on Saturday. Latest computer models are now hinting that this storm will take a track closer to our coastline which means more snow could affect our area. Keep in mind there is a sharp cutoff with this storm. The slightest shift in track will determine whether we see no snow or several inches.Most computer models now agree that snow should at least graze the coast which could give us another shot of accumulating snow on Saturday.( Daily will keep you updated! 14th Street Pier on Friday.last_img
