Nor’easter Expected for Wednesday and Thursday in the Princeton Region

StormTotalSnowWebFcstThe National Weather Service in Mt. Holly is now calling the storm slated for Wednesday night a “major nor’easter” and has increased the amount of snow predicted to fall in the region.

The Central Jersey area is expected to get 6 to 8 inches of snow, and freezing rain up to a tenth of an inch or more is also a possibility.  The heaviest snowfall will be to the northwest of the I-95 corridor, reported Gary Szatkowski of the National Weather Service.

Snowfall will start Wednesday night and continues into the day Thursday. Heavy snow, icing due to freezing rain, and coastal flooding are all threats from this storm. Any freezing rain will cause very slippery roads and walkways, making travel very difficult. Current storm timing indicates that the Wednesday evening commute should be fine. The storm will probably affect both the morning and evening commute on Thursday.

Minor coastal flooding is likely and moderate coastal flooding is possible along the Atlantic coast, the Delaware Bay and the Raritan Bay. Significant rainfall along the coast may worsen the coastal flooding.

Keep an eye on the forecast, because small changes in the storm track and intensity could result in a significant change in the forecast.

Planet Princeton will post updates as they become available. The next National Weather Service briefing on the storm will go out Tuesday afternoon.
