NEW YORK (CBS New York) -The bulk of the weekend snowstorm will dodge most coastal areas of the mid-Atlantic, but may still hit eastern New England and New Brunswick hard with snow.

The latest consensus among AccuWeather.com Meteorologists is for little or now snow at all from Hartford to New York City, Philadelphia, Wilmington, Baltimore and Washington.

“Cold, dense air will really hang tough over this region preventing snow in most areas,” according to Expert Senior Meteorologist Evan Myers.

Part of southeastern Virginia, northeastern North Carolina, the southern Delmarva and eastern Long Island will attempt an inch or two accumulation. However, it now appears the risk of any accumulation beyond a coating of snow is out of reach now for even metro New York City.

Just a few flurries, at most, are in store for interior New Jersey, northern Delaware and the lower Hudson Valley.

The storm will be a late-bloomer as far as serious snow is concerned, but it appears it will get its act together over eastern New England, New Brunswick and part of the Gulf of St. Lawrence region of Quebec from later Sunday into early next week.

The way the storm accomplishes the 6- to 12-inch total snowfall is by lingering for a an extra day or two, throwing bands of snow from northeast to southwest into Maine, part of New Hampshire and eastern Massachusetts. The periods of snow could extend through the day Tuesday in some areas of eastern New England and neighboring Canada.

West of the storm, the cold flow of air will continue this weekend with bands of snow and flurries downwind of the Great Lakes.
