Spring Begins With Light Snow

First Alert: Snow Passing Through

Snow continued to fall in parts of South Jersey early Monday, but First Alert Meteorologist Sheena Parveen predicts it will likely be mostly cleared out by the height of the morning rush. (Published Monday, March 21, 2016)

The first day of spring brought a bit of winter weather to our area. A mixture of rain and light snow is moving through our region.

A winter weather advisory was issued Sunday for Atlantic and Burlington counties.The advisory went into effect at 7 p.m. Sunday and will last until 6 a.m. Monday.

Conditions were dry Sunday morning. Then light snow began to fall in the Philly area late Sunday afternoon. Rain also began to fall across the region but changed over to light snow Sunday night.

We won't see much accumulation from the system. However, with the timing conditions are more favorable for snow sticking on roads meaning we could see some slushy, slick spots during the Monday morning rush.
