The National Weather Service is forecasting precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch for South Jersey, but it appears the area will avoid the snowfall accumulation expected today in northern parts of the state.

The northwest and central parts of the state are likely to see the most snow Tuesday, while forecasters are calling for a possible wintry mix elsewhere.
