North Jersey residents can expect a little snowfall to help them ring in 2014.

Scattered snow showers, snow squalls, temperatures in the 20s and flash freeze conditions could rake through our area bringing at least 6 inches of snow accumulation between Tuesday evening and Friday morning, according to the National Weather Service.

“A prolonged period of snow is expected late Wednesday night into Friday morning,” the NWS said in an advisory Tuesday morning.

Forecasters have also predicated bitterly cold conditions after snowfall abates on Friday, with some calling for even more snow as another storm appears headed our way early next week.

Stay with Patch for the latest.

I wonder if our children will wind up stranded some where in town with this snowstorm in Mahwah.

HSR - why would they get stranded? I was surprised by the early dismissal. Forecasts consistently predict the bad weather for 6 PM. I only hope the new Superintendent continues to maintain common sense and isn't already giving in to pressure (Yes - I fully realize, that the previous storm was completely misjudged in light of the forecasts for THAT day. I was puzzled when there were half days when it was uncalled for, but there were school days when forecasts highly suggested a snow-day). But, in general, if parents and kids can drive around town going shopping - they should have been in school instead. Some kids have two working parents who struggle to accommodate those nonsense half-days - no to speak of the loss in educational time (an cost) that is NOT made up.
