It’s time to start getting your snow shovel ready.

Forecasters from the National Weather Service and nearly every forecasting service are warning on a winter storm that will start late Wednesday night and carry into midday Thursday. They predict it will start as rain and changeover to snow, dropping several inches.

The National Weather Service’s regional office on Wednesday evening said 4 to 6 inches could fall. In advance of Wednesday night, they issued a Winter Storm Watch for Bucks County and several neighboring counties.

Meteorologist said the snow is expected to cause slippery travel Thursday morning and will fall heavily at times.

Wednesday’s high temperature will be near 60 degrees before dropping to freezing overnight.

The National Weather Service Tuesday evening said “forecast confidence continues to increase in a significant snowfall.”

“There is still some uncertainty on how much we top out at and where the axis of heaviest snow sets up,” the Facebook page said in a post.

The anticipated midweek storm could be this season’s largest snowfall.
