After there was a potential for a lot of snow on Monday that didn’t come through, the storm that’s coming in now has a bit more possibility.
The National Weather Service is eyeing snow overnight Thursday into Friday, with 3-5 inches possible across both days.
⚠️The Tri-State's first widespread snowfall of the season is likely to occur late tonight into the first half of Friday.
