More wet weather was expected for South Jersey as overnight snow becomes a wintry mix Saturday morning and rain later in the day, forecasters said.

A storm was expected to begin at about 1 a.m. that could leave accumulations of an inch of snow in some areas before the changeover, the Mount Holly branch of the National Weather Service said Friday night.

The weather has been relentless the past few days, shifting often from snow to rain and back again. Meteorologist Dean Iovino of the Mount Holly office said the culprit was not a single storm that has settled over the region as in past weather events this season, but several different storms over the multi-day period.

“We’re getting one weather system after another,” Iovino said. “We’re getting very little break in between systems at this point.”  

Iovino said temperatures will remain cold Sunday into Presidents Day on Monday, with a chance for more rain and snow Monday night into Tuesday morning. Temperatures will be closer to seasonal highs of about 40 by midweek before rising into the 50s by Friday, he said.

Northwest New Jersey is expected to get the highest snow totals today, with the least falling along the shore.

The latest precipitation comes on the heels of a storm that brought as much as 19 inches to parts of the state Wednesday and Thursday.
