In ten counties, the government has issued winter weather recommendations before of a ceremony that would bring 1 to 3 inches of snow to parts of central and southern Ontario on Super Bowl Sunday.
The advisories issued Saturday afternoon include Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, and Salem counties.
The Mercer and Middlesex advisories will start at 1 p.m. Sunday and will continue until 4 p.m. for most of the counties.
The weather service was anticipating the first day of the day, claiming that a weak storm system would result in 1 to 3 inches of snow across parts of the Jersey Shore and much of South Jersey.
On Sunday, forecasters from all over New Jersey will predict 1 to 3 inches of snow.
As a cold front sweeps cold air across New Jersey, light snow is expected to start falling late Saturday night and continue through the mid-afternoon on Sunday, according to forecasters.
The explosion of cold air on Sunday will be in stark contrast to the mild, almost-spring-like temperatures that will be hovering in New Jersey on Saturday. The mercury is expected to climb into the mid-50s to near 60 degrees, with partly sunny skies.
According to national weather service figures, colder February reached a new high of 42 degrees in North Jersey and 45 degrees in South Jersey. The daily high for February 12 is 64 degrees in Atlantic City, set in 2018, 68 degrees in Trenton, set in 1999, and 70 degrees in Newark.
