GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (JANUARY 29, 2022)(CNBNewsnet)--The nor’easter blew into Gloucester City and surrounding South Jersey communities shortly after 9 PM Friday. By midnight the storm hit with a vengeance, covering the ground with the white stuff, aided by wind gusts that were clocked at 50 MPH.
The snow fell throughout the night and by morning there was a foot of snow on the ground in some cities like the coastal town of Atlantic City.
AccuWeather meteorologists warned the public that the effects from the latest bomb cyclone to impact the Northeast can persist long after the last flake falls as crews work tirelessly to move the mountains of snow and restore power amid bitterly cold air.
Dangerously low AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures will pose a risk to those cleaning up in the wake of the snowstorm and the hundreds of thousands left without heat.
"Residents of the Northeast will not be out of the woods with this latest storm even as the snow ends," said AccuWeather Meteorologist Matt Benz.
Frigid conditions left in the wake of the storm are expected to add further challenges to the cleanup process, with forecasters projecting low temperatures Saturday night to dip into the single digits.
According to Accuweather.com there will be a return of some sunshine on Sunday. And, high temperatures are only projected to top out in the teens and 20s F across the region, with RealFeel® Temperatures continuing to lag behind the actual thermometer reading by 5-15 degrees, on average.
Some main roads like the Black Horse Pike are 80% clear, but the majority of roads in Gloucester Township, New Jersey are still snow-covered, as crews continue to work into the night.
ALL roads are expected to freeze within the next few hours and into the night. We encourage folks NOT to travel unless absolutely necessary, ESPECIALLY if you're operating a vehicle that is not four-wheel or all-wheel drive.
A BIG THANK YOU--We would publicly like to thank our neighbors, Mike, Jerry, and Matt for clearing the snow off our sidewalk that fell from this storm and the other snowstorms that occurred during the month of January.
