Snowstorm expected to strike area

Published January 10. 2011 05:00PM

Snow haters got lucky last weekend when the brunt of a winter storm narrowly missed, giving us about two inches of snow while delivering two feet of the precipitation to New York City.

Another storm is forming for late tomorrow into Wednesday, and forecasters predict that the local area won't fare as well.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch in effect from Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning, with possible accumulations of six inches or more.

The NWS said the actual track of the storm is uncertain at the present time, so even a slight variation to the west could mean higher accumulation.

According to the Weather Service's Mount Holly, N.J. office, "The snow is expected to spread from southwest to northeast late Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday evening. The snow will become steadier and heavier Tuesday night, before tapering off during the mid to late morning hours of Wednesday."

The Weather Service says it will update its forecast later today and into tonight as the path of the storm becomes more defined.
