Boston area feeling wrath of winter storm.

BOSTON — Parts of the Northeast got their first real taste of winter on Saturday as a storm crawling up the coast left a slushy, snowy coating from Pennsylvania to New England, but forecasters are watching a possible second shot of snow that could affect the region early in the work week.

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A wintry mix of snow, sleet and ice coated New Jersey and created some treacherous travel conditions on Saturday, and residents were bracing for another storm that could drop more snow on the state. Most residents saw snow when the precipitation started late Friday night, but it had changed over to freezing rain or rain in most areas by early Saturday morning.

Snow in those areas began early Saturday — and it could mix with freezing rain, sleet, and rain before returning to snow in the evening, forecasters said. So just keep an eye out for slippery, slushy spots and speeding knuckleheads.” Another system beginning Sunday night into Monday is expected to drop another inch or two across Pennsylvania, with a potentially bigger one behind it late Monday. “There is an increasing possibility of a significant storm late Monday night into Tuesday night,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Simpson in Taunton, Mass., adding that there’s still much uncertainty this far ahead. “It’s how it evolves once it develops.” He said there is the potential that a storm moving up the East Coast could stall before it tracks out to sea, bringing high wind, heavy precipitation and the potential for coastal flooding.
