STATE — Road crews are working to clear New Jersey highways and major roadways, but the worst of this winter storm may not have come yet.
The National Weather Service has a blizzard warning in effect for the state. High winds — with gusts of up to 45 miles per hour — are expected this afternoon. Possible whiteout conditions will make travel dangerous, and officials are advising residents to stay at home if possible.
Final snow accumulations could range between 10-22 inches by the time the storm ends late tonight or early tomorrow morning.
Gov. Chris Christie authorized the closure of all state offices; the state’s courts are closed, as are many public and private schools.
New Jersey Transit is cross-honoring bus tickets on trains and light rail; bus service is experiencing 45 minute delays system-wide this morning.
The Raritan Bay Area YMCA is closed today; call 1-732-442-3632 to confirm Thursday operating hours.
