Winter Weather Advisory until 03:00AM Thursday

...A dangerous nor`easter producing heavy, wet snow, will have high impact and potential for numerous new power outages and some tree damage from eastern Pennsylvania into northern and western New Jersey... .A compact but powerful nor`easter will skirt the New Jersey coast this afternoon before heading toward Cape Cod this evening. It will produce periods of heavy precipitation. All locations along and west of the Interstate 95 corridor are vulnerable to heavy snow, with the greatest uncertainty within 20 miles east of Interstate 95. Otherwise, there is very high confidence that this storm will make travel difficult or nearly impossible at times late this morning and this afternoon across much of eastern Pennsylvania and northern New Jersey, basically from near Philadelphia, west and north to the New York state border and beyond. Highest snow accumulations will be in the hilly areas. Unnecessary travel is not recommended today. Thereafter, communities will need tonight and Thursday morning to dig out. Caution is advised for those with heart problems as over exertion removing wet snow could prompt a heart attack. ...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 3 AM EST THURSDAY...

* WHAT...Snow. Additional snow accumulations of up to 2 inches, with localized amounts up to 5 inches, are expected.

* WHERE...Ocean and Southeastern Burlington counties.

* WHEN...Until 3 AM EST Thursday.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Plan on slippery road conditions, including during the evening commute. Be prepared for reduced visibilities at times. Snowfall rates of nearly 2 inches an hour are expected at times through 7 PM. If the snow is wet and clings to trees and wires, then branches would break and power outages would result.



A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving. The latest road conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by calling 5 1 1.
