A fast-moving storm that dumped as much as 5 inches of snow on parts of eastern Pennsylvania left little accumulation in Galloway Township on Tuesday (Dec. 10).

Forecasters had called for 2 to 4 inches for coastal New Jersey in a winter weather advisory issued on Monday. But with temperatures remaining above freezing into mid-afternoon, most of the precipitation came in the form of rain and sleet, which ended by about 3 p.m.

Galloway streets showed no accumulation. Grass surfaces and sidewalks saw only a trace amount of snow.

The predicted high temperature for Wednesday is 30 degrees with a return of the sun. The mercury is not expected to rise above 32 degrees again until Friday — with sun and a predicted high of 39 degrees.

Another round of rain is expected to hit the region on Saturday and Sunday. The long-range forecast suggests precipitation is likely for both days.

Fearing slick road conditions on Tuesday, the Galloway Township and Greater Egg Harbor Regional school districts cancelled the school day on Tuesday. Classes will resume on Wednesday.

The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey in Galloway Township closed at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. Atlantic Cape Community College canceled morning and afternoon classes on Tuesday.
