The Morris County Emergency Operations office continues to monitor the Nor'easter. At this time, the winter storm appears to be on track to reach our area this evening into Tuesday evening.
We are preparing for what forecasters have described as a "Major Winter Storm." The National Weather Service has issued a "Winter Storm Watch," which is in effect from Tuesday evening through Wednesday evening.
The current data suggests that we may experience 2-4” per hour snow rates during the pre-dawn hours into early afternoon on Tuesday. Blizzard conditions and limited visibility are possible at the height of the storm, with prolonged blowing and drifting snow.
At this time, the data suggests snow accumulations of 18-24 inches are possible depending on where the storm sets up.
The heaviest snow and highest winds are expected through the morning and early afternoon Tuesday. Winds will be northeast at 15-30 miles per hour with gusts to 35-45 miles per hour late Monday night through Tuesday. We may experience scattered snow showers into Wednesday.
