Moorestown Could See 2 Inches of Snow Saturday

National Weather Service meteorologists are tracking a snowstorm heading our way this weekend.

Moorestown can expect its second snowfall of the season this weekend, with one to two inches of the white stuff forecast to fall as a weather system makes its way here Saturday.

Meteorologist Mitchell Gaines, with the National Weather Service in Mount Holly, said parts of southeastern Burlington County can expect a coating but other parts of the county could get a few inches.

In some parts of the county, that snow will change over to rain from late morning to late afternoon. It should end in the early evening. However, Moorestown shouldn't see that rain.

The temperature will be in the low 30s Saturday morning and rise to the upper 30s in the afternoon.

The precipitation should clear up by Sunday with mostly sunny skies and breezy conditions.

Because of the cold weather—with wind chill expected to dip into the 20s and below—the county has once again declared a Code Blue Weather Emergency for the weekend, commencing at 5 p.m. Saturday and remaining in effect until 10 a.m. Wednesday. 

A Code Blue declaration is made when winter conditions pose a threat of serious harm or death to individuals without shelter. When a Code Blue is enacted it provides for short-term emergency sheltering. Individuals can call CONTACT of Burlington County at 856-234-8888 or 866-234-5006 for a list of available shelters and additional Code Blue information.
