Snow accumulation increases in latest prediction
The area is bracing for the second big storm of the season, with the National Weather Service calling for several inches snow, wind and rain between now and Friday. The Weather Channel forecast for tonight calls for clouds and a low temperature of around 34 degrees with some snow arriving after 6 a.m. Tuesday. The snow will give way to mostly rain with some snow and highs near 40 degrees during the day. Expect winds at around 25 mph and less than an inch of snow during the day. But don't get too comfortable, the forecast calls for between 2 and 4 inches overnight. On Thursday, expect wind and accumulations of between 1 and 3 inches of snow. The area could see more snow on Friday before the sun returns on Saturday with a high in the 50s.
So far it looks like a sopping wet day with lots of precipitation but no major snowfall.
Early forecasts for winter weather for Wednesday look like precipitation all day, and much of it is a sopping mix of snow and freezing rain. The good news about the National Weather Service's early predictions for what tomorrow holds is that doesn't include massive snow fall. They are predicting less than an inch of snow before it's all over. The mix of rain and snow will be on and off all day Wednesday, with an 80 percent chance of precipitation.

The central New Jersey area may receive a few inches of snow tomorrow.
We're in for snow this weekend, according to the National Weather Service (NWS), which has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Saturday for central and northern New Jersey. They are predicting snowfall starting here by mid-morning and continuing to as late as 7 pm, which they say may dump up from 2 to 4 inches in the area. A winter weather advisory means that the snow may cause travel problems, particularly on bridges and overpasses, which tend to ice up before regular road surfaces. Temperatures should be from the upper 20s to below freezing, the NWS advised, with visibility reduced to about half a mile at times during the snowfall.

Next time it snows, call your councilman if your street isn't touched by township plows.

To the Editor: By now, even the most ardent snow lovers have had enough of the white stuff. Certainly, the hard working and dedicated Woodbridge Public Works/ Sanitation workers have had to deal with more snow and ice than anyone else in the township. To their credit, and that of their director, Dennis Henry, the department has done a remarkable job, given the unrelenting winter storms the township has endured. Yes, there are streets that were not plowed or were barely plowed. And perhaps, more salt should have been spread on the streets/roads around the township. But everyone should keep in mind, the department has recently gone through a downsizing; new and perhaps less experienced employees are getting what might be called a baptism…

We'll have a break later this morning, but the precipitation resumes later today
Woodbridge residents woke up to an inch of snow this morning, which, given the snow falls since Christmas, seems like nothing.
