FLEMINGTON, NJ – Emergency management officials are calling it a "potentially crippling storm."

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for all of Hunterdon and significant snow is expected to start falling around 9 tonight. The Weather Service reports that snow may be heavy at times at that total snow accumulations overnight may be between three and five inches.

Meteorologists say that snow tomorrow is certain, with widespread blowing snow expected and another six to 10 inches likely.

Events across Hunterdon have been cancelled and businesses are closing. Earlier today, ShopRite in Flemington made the unusual announcement to be closed tomorrow.

NWS says that the combination of heavy snow and gusty winds will make for white out conditions, with roads becoming impassible, especially with snowfall rates of one to three inches per hour at times.

And that’s not the end of it. Forecasts call for snow to continue into Saturday night, with another five inches possible. Snowfall will likely finally taper off early Sunday morning, when high temperatures will climb into the mid-30s. And power outages, because of the heavy snow and wind, are also possible.

Temperatures tonight will fall into the low-20s, and reach only into the upper-20s on Saturday.
