STATE – New Jersey residents can expect more snow Tuesday, according to forecasts from the National Weather Center.
A winter storm warning is in effect from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning for much of the state. Heavy snow is predicted at times, with accumulations ranging from 6 to 10 inches. Periods of low visibility – down to a quarter mile at times – are likely.
The snow is expected to begin Tuesday afternoon or evening. The heaviest snowfall is expected to take place later Tuesday night, tapering off Wednesday morning.
Colonel Rick Fuentes, superintendent of the New Jersey State Police and director of the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management, is asking all state residents and commuters prepare for Tuesday’s impending winter weather which could impact the evening rush hour.
Drivers should adhere to those behaviors that constitute safe driving and realize that inclement weather and road conditions will impact their commute. Unnecessary travel is not recommended.
Motorists are encouraged to check for current road conditions at the New Jersey Department of Transportation website: http://www.511nj.org/.
All cars should be equipped with road maps, a cell phone, a shovel, a windshield scraper, a tow rope, booster cables, and a brightly colored cloth to use as a distress signal. A bag of sand or non-clumping cat litter to spread under tires if stuck in snow is also recommended.
