With the winter season looming on the horizon, you might be wondering when South Jersey might see those first snowflakes or significant snow.

Last winter, we had our first accumulating snow on November 15th & 16th. Close to two inches fell in Hammonton and over an inch was recorded in Buena Vista Township according to the website Climate.Rutgers.edu.

The Garden State averages 23 inches of snow a year according to bestplaces.net. 

Parts of Central and Northern Jersey could see some snow or a wintry mix Thursday night into Friday as temps plummet, according to NJ.com.

Our Lite Rock Meteorologist Dan Zarrow, is calling for temps to be 15 to 20 degrees below normal starting Friday and right into the weekend.

We may also see the first snowflakes of the season when temps bottom out on Thursday. There could be the possibility of a storm and perhaps some accumulating precipitation on Monday (Veteran's Day 2019).

Now is the time to find your hats, gloves and shovels. Get ready for another winter season in South Jersey!
