A large storm system that’s brought a wintry mix across the Midwest is set to slam the Northeast on Wednesday as some people still remain without power from last week’s storm, FOX News reports.

The National Weather Service said the storm is going to transition into a nor’easter as it moves off the East Coast, bringing between 6 to 12 inches of snow across much of the region. Winter Storm Warnings have been posted stretching from Philadelphia to the Boston-area, with areas north and west of the Interstate 95 corridor expected to see the greatest amount of snow.

“Areas south and east of the big cities will see less snow and more of a mixing which will cut back on snow totals,” Fox News Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean said Tuesday “The heaviest snow will start late-morning through the afternoon Wednesday and into the dinnertime hour.”

The nor’easter will also bring winds gusting between 40 and 50 mph, bringing the threat of power outages to an area still cleaning up from the powerful storm last week.

From New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy Facebook page:

In preparation for tonight’s storm, I am declaring a state of emergency statewide beginning at 8:00 p.m. ‬

‪We are particularly concerned w/ Hunterdon, Morris, Sussex and Warren counties, which are still reeling from this past weekend’s #noreaster.‬

‪Here’s how our team is preparing:‬

NJDoT is ready to activate more than 207,000 tons of salt and 2,500 plows, spreaders, and loaders that can be deployed as needed across New Jersey.

New Jersey State Police has activated the State Emergency Operations Center for round-the-clock operations, pulling together multiple departments to ensure that we are constantly monitoring critical situations.

New Jersey Office of Emergency Management will ensure daily on-site coordination with statewide regional representatives and work with New Jersey National Guard as it responds to requests for assistance.

New Jersey Board of Public Utilities continues working with JCP&L and other utilities to restore power to more than 50,000 customers affected by last weekend’s #noreaster. We’re committed to making sure every household gets back to normal as soon as possible.

The governor told people not to “panic,” but said they should use “extreme caution” if traveling on state roads.

Stay safe out there patriots!

God Bless.
