Possible Half-Foot of Snow, Frigid Temperatures Ring in New Year

Expect 3 to 6 inches of snow and temps into the teens by the weekend.

If it's Thursday, think snow. That's the forecast for an almost New Year's snowstorm that will continue through Friday and blanket the North Jersey region with up to 6 inches of the white stuff.

All indications say the snow starts at sunrise, said Mike Mihalik, a meteorologist for Hackettstown's WeatherWorks

The snowfall will continue on and off during Thursday and become heavier and more consistent after 5 p.m. as a low pressure area takes shape and ramps up the snow output, Mihalik said.

"Early Friday is when we'll see most of the accumulation of the system," he said.

Heavier amounts of snow are expected north and east of the Hackettstown area, particularly up the Eastern Seaboard in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. 

Our area will get a second punch of winter as well with below-freezing temperatures during Thursday and Friday. Expect temps not to get out of the teens on Friday, and dipping down to the bone-chilling single digits by Friday night, Mihalik said.
