Updating This Morning's Flurry & Snow Shower Activity

Flurries and snow showers are falling through the western suburbs as you get out the door -- and we're going to deal with this through the day as this axis of snow shower activity pushes east as the day progresses.  It's likely not going to accumulate on road surfaces and not be a noteworthy event by any stretch but grassy surfaces and your car top may have a thin dusting or coating of snow as you head out the door this morning.

Earlier, winter weather advisories were out for South Jersey's coastal counties for the prospect of up to an inch of snow accumulating.  Due to the slower timing in those snow showers developing and the fact that they are developing farther to the west, those advisories were dropped just after 4 AM.  Snow showers will still pivot east and they could coat or dust non-paved surfaces through the day but the odds of anything sticking on roads much past 9 AM, will diminish as solar energy kicks in.  Snow showers could still dust or coat your yard but even then the odds of it doing much, or sticking around for long, are pretty low.

These snow showers will push off the coast around midday or into the afternoon hours, with the afternoon featuring a chilled mix of clouds and sunshine with a stiff breeze.
