Forecasters are predicting that South Jersey will wake up to more snow Monday morning.

The snow was expected to start about 10 p.m. Sunday, bringing as much as 4 inches of snow to Atlantic and Cumberland counties. A bit more snow was expected in Cape May County and a bit less in southern Ocean County.

“It’s a north-south thing,” said meteorologist Dean Iovino, of the National Weather Service in Mount Holly. “The farther north you go in New Jersey, the less snow there will be.”

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly projected general accumulations of 1 to 3 inches, with part of Atlantic and Cumberland counties getting as much as 4 inches.

Snow and rain would move into the area early evening before turning into all snow. Northeast winds of 10 to 20 mph, with gusts up to 30 mph, were expected.

In a 3:45 p.m. update, the National Weather Service projected that the snow would end by noon. Clouds will decrease by the afternoon, and high temperatures will reach the low- to mid-30s.

The snow could create travel issues overnight and Monday, according to the NWS weather advisory.

Northern New Jersey may get only 1 inch, Iovino said.

Temperatures will stay below freezing for much of Monday, but increase to the mid 40s on Tuesday and the lower 50s on Wednesday, Iovino said, so the snow probably won’t remain long.

Motorists are advised to exercise caution.
