The first day of Spring is set to bring the fourth Nor'easter in the North East this month with up to 11 inches of snow predicted between Tuesday and Wednesday.
Earlier on Monday just three inches was predicted for the area but as the day progressed the National Weather Service anticipated that the snowfall would be heavier than first thought.
Heavy wet snow of between five and 11 inches is predicted for North Jersey, New York City and lower Hudson Valley.
Eight to 10 inches are expected in Bergen, Passaic, Essex and Morris counties.
The potential snow and rain storm is predicted to arrive on Tuesday and continue through midweek and the Nor'easter likely won't be the last of its kind for the season.
'Spring starts tomorrow, but snow is in the forecast,' the New York National Weather Service said on Twitter Monday morning.

Temperatures are expected to be in the mid-30's to 40's on Tuesday and Wednesday during the day. By Friday, temperatures will rise to the upper 40's.
