Here's what to expect from the second nor'easter in a week

Forecasters are confident that counties along the eastern edge of New York state will get heavy snow Wednesday from the second nor'easter in a week, but the picture is not as clear for Central New York. Becoming windy, 20-30 mph.Snow potential of 5-8 inches in Philadelphia. With the wet and heavy snow, drifting should not be much of an issue.

WEDNESDAY: Light snow showers become steady and heavier through the afternoon and evening. Governor Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency in Westchester, Putnam, Sullivan and Dutchess counties after last week's storm. But scattered outages are still possible from a combination of gusty winds and a heavy wet snow.

Winter Storm Quinn will bring more heavy snow and strong winds to the Northeast just days after another nor'easter knocked out power to over 2 million, but Quinn looks to be much different than last week's Riley.

Today is a tranquil day, giving utility companies another opportunity to restore any power knocked out in the previous storm.

The best estimate now is up to 8 inches of snow east of I-81, particularly Wednesday afternoon, with 3 to 8 inches to the west of I-81. South and east of the I-95 corridor, rain and sleet are expected to factor in for a longer time and therefore less snow is expected, with 3 to 6 inches across interior South Jersey just southeast of Interstate 95 and 1 to 3 inches southeast from there, with perhaps very little along the shore.

After noon tomorrow the snow will pick up in intensity over inland areas, but it will be raining along the coastline.

Thankfully, this will be the last storm we see for a while. well, at least until Sunday.

Since Feb. 1, northwestern New Jersey has received more than 200 percent of normal precipitation, Drag noted.

The computer models on Monday pointed to 12-18 inches of snow for the southern third of Sussex County and south and west into Warren and Hunterdon counties as well as Monroe and Northhampton counties in Pennsylvania. This means snow could change to a period of rain late Wednesday/Wednesday night southeast of Hartford.

Snow is expected to start 10 pm Tuesday to 4 am Thursday, according to the National Weather Service. Our average high for this time of year is in the mid 40s, so we'll be running below that with a brisk breeze adding an extra chill.

If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency and check local Department of Transportation information services for the latest road conditions.

Tuesday will be the "calm before the storm" with partly to mostly sunny skies and a lighter breeze.
