2″ of Snow Expected Thursday Night; Friday Morning’s Commute Could Be Tough
With 2" of snow forecasted for parts of our area Thursday night, it's possible that Friday morning's commute to work could be a little rough.
In fact, dare we say: some schools may even have some delayed openings?
So how does it impact your life? Here's what it means:
It will start snow snowing sometime after 7 pm on Thursday. Light snow will fall overnight, and it could mix with (or change over to) rain early Friday. Forecasters expect all precipitation to wrap up by about 6 am Friday.
"While this won't be a major winter storm, driving conditions could get pretty sloppy. Especially where roads are snow-covered or slushy," Townsquare New Jersey's Chief Meteorologist explained on Wednesday.
The National Weather Service is forecasting 1-2" for most of our area Thursday night. This means it could be on the ground for Friday morning's commute.
