Storm May Bring Region Only 2 Inches of Snow
Precipitation expected to begin Wednesday, linger until Thursday, meteorologist says.
What many hope will be the final snowfall of the winter season is expected to be mild in accumulation but heavy in wind gusts, according to the National Weather Service.
A low-pressure system making its way through the Mid-Atlantic is approaching New Jersey and will bring approximately two inches of precipitation to the northern portion of the state Wednesday through Thursday, National Weather Service meteorologist Mitchell Gaines said.
Snowfall is expected to begin early Wednesday, then mix with rain in the afternoon and return to snow by night, Gaines said.
Winds will gust between 20 and 25 miles-per-hour, Gaines said, but could climb to as high as 40 miles-per-hour at times. Lingering rainfall will end by Thursday morning, Gaines said.
