Besides squalls during rush hour on a Friday in Novemberthe first real snow began to fall in new jersey on sunday morning, with 6 inches expected to reach the northernmost parts of the state by monday morning.
But a potential storm is brewing that could outdo this one, and the snow could fall much further south.
“Most of the snow we’re seeing today is pretty light,” said Cameron Vanderlin, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Mount Holly. “This is kind of a weak low pressure system compared to what could potentially be seen Thursday-Friday”
Snow will taper further south Sunday through Monday, with Newark expecting less than half an inch, according to the National Weather Service. Parts of Warren County are also expected to see snow, but less than an inch. Snowfall is expected to stop, as it often does, along the I-78 corridor.
A winter weather advisory is in effect for Sussex counties and parts of Passaic until Monday morning.

But there could be flurries and mixed precipitation in northern Monmouth and western Ocean counties on Sunday, Vanderleen said. Other than that, it’s raining on the shore and the rest of New Jersey.
As for later this week, Vanderleen declined to say where the rain/snow split is most likely, but he said the forecast shows at least a chance of snow as far south as Cumberland and Salem counties.
Steven DiMartino, Owner nynjpaweather.com, said the forecast is still uncertain, but said snow could fall north of the Interstate 80 corridor at higher elevations later in the week, with rain expected in coastal areas. Another model, however, shows the potential for snow across New Jersey.
“There are too many moving parts right now to know for sure,” he said.
