New Jersey

The National Weather Service has other plans for us and, as a result, has issued a Winter Weather Advisory, which is in effect from 6 a.m. tomorrow, Saturday, March 12, until 7 p.m.

Forecasters have also issued a wind advisory which is in effect from 10 a.m. tomorrow, Saturday, March 12, until 1 a.m. Sunday, March 13.

 

Weather

Much of NJ will be greeted by rain this morning with mixing of sleet and snow before a transition to all snow.

At the point of the all snow transition, forecasters the storm has the potential to be intense, causing accumulations on all surfaces reasonably quickly.

In addition, the forecasted wind gusts of 40 – 50 mph may lead to some downed branches/power outages.

Summer

Depending on which forecast report you review, the accumulation totals range from 1-3" and 2-6" with the higher accumulation totals being a possibility in the county's western portion.

Plan on slippery road conditions.

Adjust your speed, slow down and use caution while traveling.
