New Jersey’s first winter storm of the year will dump between 4 and 12 inches of snow on most of the state today, with the storm moving out of the region around 4 p.m. Thursday afternoon.
“There definitely is a sharp transition right now between the northern part of the state and the New Jersey Turnpike region,” said Chad Shafer, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service’s regional forecast office in Mount Holly, as quoted at NJ.com. “Temperatures are in the low to mid-30s in the I-95 corridor,” and still in the 40s in parts of South Jersey, like Millville, Wildwood and Cape May, where the weather service received some reports of lightning this morning.”
