A coastal low-pressure system is predicted to lumber up the coast during the early portion of the week and intensify when it reaches the Middle Atlantic States.
As a result, the Jersey Shore could receive 2-4 inches of snow because some of the precipitation could fall as rain. Areas farther inland, including the western portions of Atlantic County, could get 4-6 inches. It looks as though Cape May County residents might only get 1-2 inches of snow.
Those living along the I-95 corridor receive the grand prize for a 6- to 8-inch storm total.
