It might be time to get your bread, eggs and milk.

Forecasters from the National Weather Service said Lower Bucks County is expected to see about 2 to 3 inches of snow on top of the layer that fell over the weekend. The latest bought of frozen precipitation is expected to hit Wednesday night into Thursday.

The snow will easily stick to the ground due to days of below-freezing temperatures.

The fact the latest snow system could come during the morning commute means there could be significant travel impacts Thursday morning.

In addition to the snow, northwest winds are expected to increase Thursday. Gusts could hit as high as 40 mph will be possible and could cause blowing snow, forecasters said.

The cold temperatures are not expected to rise late in the week and wind chills could fall below zero degrees Thursday night and continue through Saturday, forecasters warned.
