The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for parts of three New Jersey counties for a storm on Wednesday that could drop 1 to 3 inches of snow in areas along the Jersey Shore and make for a messy evening commute for the southern half of the state.
The winter weather advisory includes Ocean County and parts of Atlantic and Burlington counties, where snow was expected to start around 10 a.m., though some areas are already seeing some flurries. The advisory runs until 6 p.m. A winter weather advisory is issued when roads are expected to be snow covered and visibility could be limited.
“The hazardous conditions could impact the evening commute,” the National Weather Service said in its Wednesday morning briefing. “The area affected is expected to be a narrow band, so impacts and snow amounts could vary greatly over short distances.”
