A mix of snow and freezing rain is expected to affect the area beginning this afternoon and will last through Thursday, according to the N.J. Office of Emergency Management.
Meteorologist Jim Bunker, with the National Weather Service’s Mount Holly office, said the new cold front would bring "a mixed bag through most of the day" to the Atlantic City area. Rain and snow showers are possible in the afternoon.
Tuesday is expected to bring only rain in the afternoon, no snow, although there is potential for icing conditions, or river flooding due to melting ice jams, depending on the storm track.
The state office will continue to monitor the winter weather pattern throughout the week and is asking New Jersey residents to stay informed about conditions, review preparedness plans, and check on family members and friends who are elderly, disabled or isolated.
“Be especially careful if you must travel,” said Colonel Rick Fuentes, State Police Superintendent and Director of the N.J. Office of Emergency Management. “The driving conditions today and tonight will be difficult.”
