A snow squall is nature's whirlwind, a swift atmospheric drama that engulfs an area, reducing visibility to near zero.

How does this meteorological maestro orchestrate such a dramatic performance?

A burst of arctic air collides with a moist, warmer air mass, triggering a rapid upward motion of air.

The result? A sudden and intense release of snowfall.

New Jersey is on the verge of a winter storm, and most areas can expect 1 to 3 inches of snow starting late Monday into Tuesday.

As colder air sweeps in, dangerous snow squalls with "near whiteout conditions" threaten, transforming the landscape with a tempest of snow.

According to the National Weather Service, the northern half anticipates widespread snowfall of 2 to 3 inches, while the southern part expects 1 to 2 inches.

The Jersey Shore may escape with less than an inch, and Cape May County could experience a mix of rain and snow. A significant 6+ inch snowfall event is not expected.

AccuWeather aligns with the National Weather Service, forecasting 1 to 3 inches of snow statewide for New Jersey.

The storm is projected to arrive in southern New Jersey late Monday, advancing north overnight, with snow showers persisting throughout Tuesday.

These sudden bursts could create near whiteout conditions and dangerous travel, with winds gusting up to 50 mph.

Temperatures will plummet, reaching the teens and lower 20s with below-zero wind chills in northwest New Jersey.

As New Jersey faces the current storm, another potential winter storm looms later in the week.

Details remain uncertain, but early indications suggest another round of snowfall for the region.

Multiple flood warnings and a coastal flood advisory remain in effect, compounding challenges for communities dealing with high rivers and tidal flooding from recent storms.

As the meteorological drama unfolds in New Jersey, the snow squall's dance is just one act in a series of atmospheric events.
