SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ – As Yogi Berra would say, “It’s déjà vu all over again,” as another major winter storm heads our way with accumulations expected to be between 12-17 inches by Thursday morning.
The fourth nor’easter to hit the region in a month has already started with a wintry mix Tuesday evening, changing over to heavy, wet snow during the day Wednesday.
In addition to double-digit accumulations, officials are once again warning residents about potential power outages from falling trees and wires.
As of 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy already declared a state of emergency, closing state offices and colleges.
South Brunswick officials also are closing municipal offices and district schools in advance of the storm.
According to the National Weather Service in Mount Holly, “travel will be very difficult to impossible Wednesday afternoon and evening, including during the evening commute on Wednesday.”
The agency said that the snow could fall at a rate of 1-2 inches an hour during the height of the storm and could cause white-out conditions by the afternoon.
There is also the chance of thunder and blowing snow, with visibility of less than half a mile, during the worst of the storm, officials said.
Police will provide updates during the storm via Nixle, officials said.
