Good evening, everyone, this is my final call for Winter Storm Cato!  This has been a very difficult forecast and don’t be surprised if we get different snow totals than I am predicting.  Anyway here you go:

The storm is forming as we speak off the coast of South Carolina. It will zoom up the coast and we will start to see rain falling from the sky around 5 or 6 in the morning.  Now this is where it gets very, very interesting.  The rain/snow line will set up along 1-95 (come on, doesn’t that happen with, like, every storm?).  Yeah, a lot of the time this does indeed happen.  So as the battle continues throughout the morning, the rain will finally change over to wet snow in or just after the 12 o’clock hour.  The snow will come down heavy at times and will mainly stick to grassy surfaces only.  As the sun goes down, and it is predicted to go down at 4:37 p.m. tomorrow afternoon, roads and other paved surfaces may become a little slick.  The snow will continue to fall and then come to an end between 8-11 p.m. tomorrow night.  Now the big question.  How much snow are we going to receive?  I am forecasting that the Cherry Hill area will receive anywhere from 1-4 inches of snow.  Now you might say, “Jake, that’s kind of a big range, don’t you think?”  Yes, it is, but the reason my totals are like that is because just a slight move in the track East we could have 3, 4, maybe 5 inches, but a slight move west, then we could have 0, 1, 2 inches.  Nor’easter’s are always hard to predict, but all we can say is “let it snow.”  If anything changes, I will be on top of it very quickly and let you know as soon as possible.  My snow map is included.  Have a great night and stay safe tomorrow.
