A Snowy Tuesday in New Jersey
A quick moving storm will drop several inches of snow on New Jersey during the day.
The snow will begin during the early part of the morning drive, moving in from the southwest and will taper off during the afternoon.
Snow accumulation will be heaviest in south Jersey with 4-6 inches accumulation in Camden, Mercer, Burlington, Gloucester and Salem counties where a Winter Weather Warning in in place until 5 p.m. A Winter Storm Advisory has been issued for the rest of the state for 2-4 inches of snow. 1-2 inches is expected for coastal areas of Atlantic and Cape May Counties.
Roads conditions are expected to deteriorate quickly but road crews say they are ready.New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner Jim Simpsons says the roads he is responsible for are pre-treated with a brine mixture. “It’s basically a calcium water that binds onto the roadway, that allow you to buy some time so that when you start to get the snow you don’t get the ice,” he said, “it keeps everything in a liquid form.”
Many school districts are canceling classes in advance of the storm; check the full list here.
No changeover to sleet or snow is expected and winds will not be an issue.
