HILLSBOROUGH, NJ  - As predicted, the fourth Nor’Easter to wallop New Jersey in the past three weeks had already dumped several inches of snow by mid-afternoon Wednesday – the second day of spring - with the storm expected to continue through midnight.

Route 206 and other area roadways remained clear for the most part throughout central New Jersey as road crews continued to spread salt on the pavement. Traffic was at a minimum, as New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy had declared a State of Emergency at 7 p.m. Tuesday, with many people staying at home and off the roads as a result.

The heavy, wet snow is weighing down utility wires and tree branches.

Schools, colleges, Somerset County and state offices remained closed.

The snow is expected to impact the evening commute, with delays expected on train and bus routes.

Airlines canceled more than 3,000 flights at Newark Liberty Airport and other metropolitan area and east coast airports.

Delayed openings at schools and government offices  are expected Thursday.
