Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for most of the Tri-State area until Friday afternoon as snow is expected early in the morning.

Hunterdon, Somerset, Middlesex and Monmouth: 2 to 3 inches.

In South Jersey, the switch from rain to snow will probably occur between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m., Meola said, keeping snowfall accumulation very low in that region.

The National Weather Service's Upton office on Thursday issued a winter weather advisory from 10 p.m. Thursday through 2 p.m. Friday. Rain and snow are both possible for Monday and Tuesday, when the high will be near 46 degrees. "Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibility...and use caution while driving". Up to a quarter inch could accumulate, according to forecasters.

McPike said two computer models he uses varied in their forecast amounts of snow for the Omaha area - one calling for 1 inch and the other expecting up to 6 inches.

Temperatures on Friday will be much colder, with highs reaching the upper 40s.

And you thought winter was over!

Snow is predicted with an accumulation of up to three to five inches possible.
