WATCH: Is this year's winter the new normal? My latest forecast shows Monmouth County picking up 4 to 7 inches, Ocean County seeing about 2 to 5 inches, and the I-295 corridor shoveling about 3 to 6 inches. The waiver is good through February 12. The expected snowfall amount will remain uncertain.

Thursday - Snow, mainly before 3pm. First flakes falling in southwestern-most New England and then filling in to the north and east. The snow will pick up in intensity through the morning and will come down heavy at time!

The weather that will make for a messy Thursday was over the lower Midwest on Wednesday, beginning to slide to the east. There also are some concerns for some coastal flooding from Ocean County and south during the morning high tide.

Times of high tide in Boston and north of the city Thursday.

By 10 a.m., there should already be a few inches on the ground in Philadelphia.
