Winter Storm Warning, Advisory in effect Thursday morning until 4 pm

In Wyoming County, a winter weather advisory goes in to effect at 3 a.m. Sunday and continues until 4 p.m., when a winter storm warning will take effect until 1 p.m. Monday. There is a chance of freezing rain or sleet at night, though.

Monmouth and northern Ocean counties are expected to get 8 to 12 inches of snow.

Heavy snow and blowing snow is expected in Wyoming County from late Sunday afternoon through early Monday afternoon.

March 1888: A four-day blizzard brought 21 inches of snow, and the aftermath of it was disastrous - it killed more than 200 people.

In Philadelphia, as of 11:45 a.m., 2.8 inches of snow had fallen.

A mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain will start Sunday.

A wide swath of the East Coast, from eastern Pennsylvania through New Jersey and north to the ME coast, was under a winter weather warning, the National Weather Service said. Many communities bore their share of major problems on the highways as Winter Storm Niko hit the Northeast hard, snarling air and commuter traffic up and down the New York/New England coast.

Here Comes the Snow Again, New Hampshire
WMBD 31 meteorologist Lauren Rainson projects some areas along the Interstate 74 corridor could receive up to 4 inches of snow. Flight delays will be likely in Philadelphia, Harrisburg, New York City, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Boston and Hartford.

Travel Ban Could Go to Supreme Court

To enter the US from those nations will now require further vetting, which is exactly what is needed to keep the homeland safe. At Mary's Place, we provide food, clothing, English language classes and other supports to hundreds of refugees each year.

Officials also warned of high winds, coastal flooding and possible power outages. The most intense part of the storm will be after midnight Sunday night through Monday morning as the wind picks up and snow falls at the rate of 2 to 3 inches per hour at its peak. East-northeasterly winds may gust to 30 miles per hour at the coast by Sunday evening.

The heaviest of the snow will fall Sunday afternoon and evening and into the first half of Monday.

Sunday night and Monday morning's driving will become extremely risky to near impossible, especially with snowfall that intense and winds as strong as they will be. Many people reported thunder snow across the state - which, while possible during heavy snowfall, is a rare occurrence.

Cloudy conditions are forecast Saturday with temperatures in the lower 40s.

Flight cancellations in the NY metro area and other northeastern states began Wednesday as the storm approached the region.

Forecasters say the Thursday snowstorm likely will snarl workday commutes, starting in the early morning and continuing into the evening. "If you absolutely must venture out, have an emergency kit in your auto", the National Weather Service in New York City tweeted Wednesday.
