Forecasters: Another winter storm headed for NJ

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Forecasters say another major winter storm is headed for New Jersey, and it will likely drop several inches of snow on most of the state.

The storm system is expected to reach the state late Wednesday night, with the precipitation starting off as snow. It could then mix with sleet on Thursday morning before changing back to all snow in the afternoon.

But forecasters warn the storm’s track remains uncertain.

Winter storm warnings have been issued for most of southern Jersey, where 3 to 8 inches of snow is expected. But accumulations will be lower in coastal areas, where the snow should change over to rain by late Thursday morning.

Winter storm watches are in effect for north and central Jersey, where 4 to 10 inches of snow could accumulate.
