Nor'easter to Hit South Jersey Thursday-Saturday

The National Weather Service is now predicting 3-5 inches of snow, plus strong winds, during the nor'easter.

The Delaware Valley is bracing for a nor’easter expected to bring snow and extreme wind gusts starting Thursday evening.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in Mount Holly forecasts the storm will begin late at night on Thursday, Feb. 7 and continue through Saturday, Feb. 9. The bulk of the storm is expected to hit Friday night, when the combination of heavy snow, wind gusts of 40 mph inland and rush hour could create a dangerous situation.

South Jersey may be spared the worse of the storm. At a Wednesday briefing, NWS said the heaviest snowfall—8 inches or more—will be concentrated in the Poconos and northern New Jersey. Camden, Burlington and Gloucester counties are forecasted to get 2-4 inches of snow during the storm.

Coastal New Jersey and Delaware should also expect minor to moderate flooding, with wind gusts up to 55 mph.

“The storm will be intensifying as it passes through the region, so potential impacts from the storm will worsen if it intensifies faster than currently forecast,” NWS said in a briefing.
