Winter Weather Advisory Calls for Snow on Tuesday

Ocean City is expected to see 2 to 4 inches before snow stops in the afternoon.

A fast-moving winter storm will arrive near dawn on Tuesday (Dec. 10) and leave 2 to 4 inches of snow in Ocean City before moving on in the afternoon.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory in effect from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. for most of coastal New Jersey. Snowfall is expected to be heavier farther inland along the I-95 corridor.

The forecast predicets snow and minor icing with temperatures falling below freezing late on Tuesday and remaining there for a few days. The weather advisory warns of slippery roads and limited visibility.

NBC40 meteorologist Dan Skeldon calls for snow to start between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m., fall steadiest between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and be done by 4 p.m.

The Tuesday high temperature in Ocean City will be 37 degrees with a northwest wind at 13 to 16 mph. Wednesday's forecast calls for sunny skies and a high near 30 degrees with a west wind of 8 to 14 mph.

High tide is at 2:23 p.m. at the Ninth Street Bridge in Ocean City, and the ocean water temperature is 45 degrees.

There were no school or community event cancellations or postponements announced on Monday evening, but stay posted here for updates if that changes.
