For the second morning in a row, Lower Bucks County is expected to wake up to fresh snow.

According to the National Weather Service in Mt. Holly, New Jersey, starting early Saturday morning, a snow storm moving from the south is expected to move through the area and drop 1 to 2 inches of snow on top of the roughly 2.5 inches that fell early Friday.

Heavier snow and higher accumulations are expected in New Jersey and Delaware. The storm could dump up to 7 inches of snow in Cape May, New Jersey, forecasters said.

“A tight gradient will exist between areas that receive accumulating snow and those that get little or no snow,” forecasters said in a briefing statement.

The storm is expected to cause hazardous travel conditions through the region.

Gusty conditions and cold temperatures Saturday afternoon may lead to drifting snow.

Temperatures are expected to remain below freezing through the weekend.
