As the UK’s worst winter in 30 years continues, weathermen and motoring organisations predicted further hazardous conditions on the roads and chaos for youngsters trying to get to and from schools.

The latest in a string of cold snaps is due to hit the country early next week and could last as long as 10 days. Motoring groups last night called on local authorities to be better prepared this time and stockpiles of salt were being readied in a bid to get more roads treated than in the wintry spell before and after Christmas.

Weathermen warned that snowfall could be heavy in places, leaving thousands of schools once again forced to decide whether or not to close their doors. Independent risk meteorologists British Weather Services said the blast of cold air would hit the UK early next week, leading to a protracted period of icy chaos.

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.
