SUSSEX COUNTY, NJ – The report from yesterday evening has been downgraded — the National Weather Service has dropped the conditions from a Winter Storm Watch to a Winter Weather Advisory for today, Saturday, Feb. 21.
This advisory covers the Northwest area of New Jersey, through the Poconos in Pennsylvania.
A Winter Weather Advisory is defined as periods of snow, sleet and/or freezing rain. Travel may be difficult, roads slippery and visibility might be limited, especially in the later afternoon and early evening.
Snow may accumulate still between four to six inches, with a trace of ice potentially expected. Winds will mostly be low, at 5 to 10 mph, with some gusts reaching up to 20 mph.
The snow is expected to begin in the earlier half of the afternoon, some falling as rapidly as one inch an hour. It will mix later with sleet, and then is expected to taper off on Sunday morning.
