A second storm of the week is headed toward New England and will dump more snow onto the area on Saturday. 7News meteorologists are predicting Wilmington to get between 2 to 4 inches of snow in the storm that is expected to start on Saturday afternoon and spread into the early hours of Sunday.

Wilmington could see one to two inches of snow upon waking up Friday morning.
In what could be the first significant snowfall of the season, the National Weather Service is anticipating a bit of wintry weather late Thursday night into early Friday morning.
