    After yesterday’s storm that dumped over a foot of snow in many locations away from the coastline, don’t get too relaxed with today’s sunny reprieve. 

    More snow is on the way for tonight into Saturday morning. But as of Friday morning, forecasters say only minor accumulations will fall during the event, which will end by Saturday afternoon.

    The National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ is forecasting snow or a rain/snow mix, with generally one to three inches throughout the area. 

    And if you’re sick of the snow, it looks like New Jersey and immediate vicinity is dodging another major snow event, with the heavier precipitation over Long Island and Southern New England through Saturday, according to John Homenuk, lead forecaster at New York Metro Weather.

    But Homenuk says the forecast is still in flux.

    “The important thing to remember is that even a slight adjustment on the forecast models, towards a faster strengthening or more amplified solution, would mean that these bands of heavy snow would make it onshore. And that leaves us feeling a bit weary about the forecast,” he said. 

    The sun returns on Sunday, but it will be blustery, with highs in the upper 20s.
