New Jersey Braces For Weekend Snow

STATE — New Jersey residents are bracing for a winter storm that could dump close to two feet of snow on parts of the state.

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland, Ocean and Southeastern Burlington counties, beginning at 4 p.m. this afternoon and remaining in effect until 7 p.m. Saturday. Between 12-18 inches of snow are expected in coastal areas, while inland areas could see as much as 22 inches. Strong winds could reduce visibility to under a quarter of a mile at times, according to the warning.


Central Jersey can expect between 8 and 12 inches, according to the weather service. A winter storm warning is in effect for Camden, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Salem, Somerset, Warren and Northwestern Burlington counties from 6 p.m. tonight until 7 p.m. Saturday.

Northern New Jersey could escape with just 4-8 inches, though forecasters warn that a slight change in the storm’s track could increase those totals. A winter storm watch is in effect for Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Union and Eastern Passaic counties from 4 p.m. tonight until 6 p.m. Saturday.
