New Jersey: First Look At Snow Event At Sunrise
Sunrise was at 7:08 a.m. this morning.
The snow came as advertised. It’s still snowing now and the snow is forecasted to continue until 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. today, depending on your particular location.
At this time, on the mainland in Atlantic County, there is about 6 inches of snow, with at least several hours of more snow to go.
The Metro New Jersey Market forecasts are calling for a total of 9-14 inches of snow, depending on your location.
The Northwest wind has also delivered significant snow drifts.
It is beautiful. Your home and neighborhoods look like a winter wonderland.
It’s also majestic to see the snow untouched at sunrise, or, when you wake up and look out of your window and see it for the first time undisturbed.
If you’re off during weekend, the timing of this event couldn’t have been more perfect. The snow’s arrival waited until after your Friday workday and the roadways will be fine by the time you have to go back to work this Monday.
