More snow bearing down on New Jersey threatens to snarl travel and stretch the patience of residents who are still digging out from the weekend’s major storm. Forecasters said today the nor’easter will develop off the North Carolina coast and intensify into a burst of snow around the Garden State Wednesday. Winds will cause blowing and drifting snow greater than the weekend storm. The National Weather Service said the storm may start as mixed precipitation in extreme southeastern New Jersey late this afternoon. It could change to rain along the coast Wednesday morning before becoming all snow.
There could be 4 to 8 inches during Wednesday morning’s commute before a second burst brings more snow during Wednesday afternoon.
Forecasters said accumulations are expected to range from 10 to 18 inches.
Forecasters said the snow will end by midnight. AP
