What to know

  • Heavy snow fell into parts of Philadelphia on Monday.
  • Some neighborhoods in New Jersey and Delaware had more than a foot of snow, while suburban Pennsylvania and Lehigh Valley areas had very little accumulation.
  • A First Warning is in effect until 5 p.m. Monday for Philadelphia and southwards only.

The first winter storm of the season affected the southern half of the Philadelphia viewing area on Monday. The storm brought its heaviest snowfall in years to areas south of New Jersey, central and southern Delaware and the Jersey Shore. In some places there was almost snow while the northern neighborhoods had almost nothing at all.

NBC10’s First Warning Weather Team issued a First Warning lasting until 5 p.m. Monday for Philadelphia, Delaware, South Jersey and the Jersey Shore due to heavy snowfall and a moderate risk of coastal flooding. Snow fell in some nearby areas until early evening.

Cape May, New Jersey, was one of the areas hardest hit by Monday’s snowfall. NBC10’s Johnny Archer reviews the conditions.

Rain or snow mixed in before dawn across southern New Jersey and Delaware. By 5:30 a.m., icy snow began to fall on the Atlantic City Boardwalk, and it only intensified from there.

Is the school open? More than 100 schools have to close. WOODet school closed here.

As the storm system moved northward and strengthened, bands of heavier rain and mixed snow quickly turned into thick, wet snow. Several very thick bands of snow with a snowfall rate of more than 1 inch per hour fell across South Jersey, central and southern Delaware, and points on the coast. The intensity of the snow allows it to quickly accumulate in the afternoon hours.

Windy weather and floods along the coast

In addition to the snow, gusts of up to 45 mph hit Delaware and New Jersey and hit the coast through early Monday. The strongest gusts were felt right along the coast in the afternoon.

Coastal flood warning in effect for the tidal zones in Atlantic counties and Cape May in New Jersey and Sussex County in Delaware through 1:00 p.m. Monday for the high tide cycle. Some water was seen on the roads along the following bay in Ventnor and other coastal towns in the morning.

Snow fell in several areas of New Jersey on Monday, including Cumberland County. NBC10’s Steven Fisher shows us the conditions there.

Winter storm warning in effect for central and southern Delaware as well as South Jersey until at least 4 p.m. Monday.

State of Emergency in New Jersey

Ahead of the storm, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced a state of emergency Sunday night for Ocean, Cumberland, Cape May, Burlington and Atlantic counties.

“Residents should stay off the roads, stay alert and follow all safety procedures,” the Democratic governor said.

Some Cape May County libraries closed on Monday and Cape May County Parks & Zoos closed, citing safety concerns.

Cold stick at night

The worst of the storm passed before 5 p.m. Cold temperatures moved in to their teen lows on Monday night. As a result, frost may occur on snowy or wet roads and sidewalks.

Be careful when driving on the road as slippery spots are expected, even in places that don’t get a lot of snow.

Tuesday and Thursday look quiet and cold. Wednesday is milder with some showers. Friday, we have the possibility of another winter storm, but the details are extremely uncertain so far.
