A storm system off Florida this weekend could bring another volley of snowfall to New Jersey after an already record-setting winter.
Current forecast models show that storm could bring heavy snow, high winds and tidal flooding to South Jersey as early as Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. Meanwhile, colder air will begin moving through the region Sunday, ending several days of warmth at the start of spring.
State Climatologist David Robinson said this winter has seen the eighth highest snowfall on record based on several weather stations in and around Atlantic City that have recorded data since 1884.
As of March 22, the Atlantic City area has seen 39.6 inches of snowfall. The current record, set during the winter of 2009-10, is 58.1 inches.
According to the NWS, last week's storm set a local record for snowfall. The weather station at the Atlantic City International Airport recorded 3.7 inches of snow, more than the 1.6 inches set in 1965.
Reliable snowfall estimates for next week's storm have not yet been released and accumulations will depend on the track of the storm.
"Now to wait and see what next week's storm ― winter's last hurrah? ― may bring," Robinson said, in a written message.
