Moorestown could see its first snow of the season on Saturday as the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Burlington County and all of South Jersey. The watch will be in effect from 1 a.m. on Saturday through 1 a.m. on Sunday.

The National Weather Service in Mt. Holly issued the watch because of the potential for heavy snow on Saturday.
