The entire state of New Jersey can expect snow Monday, but when the snow will come and how much of it you will see will vary, according to the National Weather Service.

The morning rain will gradually transition to snow from northwest to southeast throughout the day, according to Dean Iovino, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service.

All areas are expected to see snowfall late into Monday evening, Iovino said.

Northern New Jersey will be the first area to see the rain transition to snow, and it is also the area that will see the most accumulation, according to Iovino, areas north of I-78 can expect between six and 10 inches of snow.

Later in the day, central New Jersey will start to see the transition from rain to snow and should expect between three and six inches, according to Iovino. 

The shore will be the last place to see the transition from rain to snow and can expect between two and five inches. In Monmouth and Ocean counties, the snowfall could last until after midnight, Iovino said.

Winter storm to hit New Jersey: What we know

There is also some minor coastal flooding expected during Monday’s high tide cycle. But the impact will be low as the flooding and snow will not be happening simultaneously, Iovino said.

The incoming system can be traced back to the west coast where it initially hit last week, Iovino said. Leading up to Thanksgiving Day, the same storm that we will see this Monday, pummeled the midwest with some areas getting as much as 10 inches of snow. 

The storm system should be out to see by late tonight and there is a possibility for a dry Tuesday, Iovino said.
