Feb. 4 (Bloomberg) -- New York City may receive as much as 6 inches (15 centimeters) of snow from a winter storm that has prompted a blizzard warning for tomorrow for part of southern New Jersey, forecasters said today.

The storm, which may cover the Washington-Baltimore area with as much as 2 feet of snow, is being watched by meteorologists as it moves up the East Coast because a slight shift will mean a difference between clogged or damp for New York’s streets.

The current best forecast for New York is in the range of half a foot, said Tom Kines, a senior meteorologist at AccuWeather Inc. in State College, Pennsylvania.

“New York is right on the fence,” Kines said. “You are not going to have to go that far south to where there will be a lot more and not that far north to where there won’t be much.”

Southern New Jersey, including Atlantic City, and Delaware have been placed under a blizzard warning beginning tomorrow at 4 p.m., according to the National Weather Service in Mount Holly, New Jersey. As much as 2 feet of snow is possible in the area and blowing snow may reduce visibility to less than one- quarter mile.
