OCEAN COUNTY – Ocean County, as well as portions of Atlantic and Burlington counties, may see some light snow Wednesday.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for the area until 6 p.m., with possible snow accumulations of three inches possible. The snow is expected to start later this morning.

The advisory means travel conditions will be difficult, with roads covered in snow and limited visibility possible. Use caution when driving.

“Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions could impact the evening commute. The area affected is expected to be a narrow band, so impacts and snow amounts could vary greatly over short distances,” NWS officials said. “If driving within the advisory area, please exercise caution for rapidly changing conditions. In bands of heavier snow, visibilities could be reduced as well.”
