That much hyped “historic blizzard” for the upcoming weekend?
It’s simply “nonsense,” forecasters say, with only light snow expected.
Relatively weak storm systems will affect the region, according to a briefing issued by the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ Thursday afternoon.
The briefing notes that snowfall will mostly likely fall in southern areas from Saturday into Saturday night, while northern areas are should expect snowfall Saturday night into Sunday.
But accumulations will be rather modest, ranging from two to four inches in the north and less than an inch in the south — a far cry from the 30-inch plus forecast model image that went viral last week.
