A day after spring has sprung, parts of the tristate area may be buried in close to a foot of snow by the fourth Nor'easter of the month, according to the latest forecast by the National Weather Service.
The new projections now call for 6 to 8 inches of accumulation for Wednesday's storm for most of the region, with higher amounts toward the coast. (See first image above.)
Winter Storm Warnings and Watches have now been issued for the most of the area.
Precipitation is expected to arrive in the form of a mix of sleet and snow after 8 p.m. Tuesday, the first day of spring. Less than an inch of overnight accumulation is possible.
The wintry mix will become all snow after 11 a.m. Wednesday on a day in which the temperature will stay around the 30-degree mark, with wind-chill values between 15 and 20. Snow is expected to continue until before midnight.
Winds will gust 30 to 35 mph along the coast, 25 to 30 mph inland and 25 mph or less farther north. (See second image above.)
Thursday will be mostly sunny with a high in the low-40s.
