A nor’easter moving up the coast is set to bring a mix of rain and snow to the region Monday night into Tuesday morning.

Central Bucks County and parts of Hunterdon County are expected to see 2 to 6 inches of snow, according to the National Weather Service.

The storm will start with rain Monday night and transition to snow in the predawn hours of Tuesday, with the potential for heavy bands. Before the changeover, as much as an inch of rain could fall.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for lower and central Bucks County in anticipation of the storm. A Winter Storm Warning was issued for Hunterdon County.

Forecasters warn of slushy accumulations near I-95, which could lead to poor travel conditions Tuesday morning.

The area is on the fringe of areas predicted to receive more significant snowfall, with parts of Upper Bucks County and Hunterdon County possibly getting 4 to 8 inches.

The approaching storm is also expected to bring gusty winds on Tuesday.

So far, the winter season has been relatively mild in terms of snowfall. Trenton has recorded just under 7 inches of snow this season, making it the 147th least snowy winter in over 150 years of records.

Last year, the area received only 2 inches of snow.
