Yet another winter storm is expected to bring freezing rain and icy conditions to parts of New York and New Jersey this Thursday.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect, as travel may be difficult and potentially dangerous, Fox News 5 reported.

Part of northern New Jersey and Orange County in New York are also under an Ice Storm Warning over Tuesday.

There is a possibility it will turn into snow, along with freezing sleet, over Thursday and continue into Friday. New Jersey may see 6-8 inches of snow on Thursday, the Asbury Park Press reported.

The unpleasant weather is yet another storm New Yorkers have to endure in an especially snowy and cold winter; more than 18 inches of snow have fallen in less than two weeks.

A massive snowstorm on February 2nd canceled flights, sent students and businesses online, closed vaccination sites, and brought public transit to a halt.
