Spring Snow Covers Ocean City

first_imgThe folks at Sunrise Cafe on the 900 block of Asbury Avenue shared this image from Wednesday evening with the message, “Memorial Day can’t come soon enough!”Cape May County bore the brunt of a coastal storm that moved up the Atlantic Ocean on Tuesday night.While other part of the state received much less snow, more than four inches had fallen by 10 p.m. Tuesday in Ocean City, and most parts of the Cape were expected to see 5 to 8 inches before the snow ended before dawn on Wednesday.The wet snow did not stick to the streets in the early hours of the storm on Tuesday afternoon, but it left a heavy slush as it continued into the evening.As the storm moves away on Wednesday, high winds and bitter cold are in the forecast. The high temperature is expected to be only 39 degrees, and northwest winds of 26 to 28 mph will gust to 40 mph.There’s better news by Thursday, when high temperatures are expected to return to a more seasonable mid-50s.last_img
