MADISON, NJ - Multiple weather advisories are now predicting a potential for up to 30+ inches with possible 6 foot drifts in Morris County through at least 3a.m. Sunday.
According to the Morris Twp police department, "Wind hasn't topped out yet...gusts should reach 40mph. No power outages yet, but they are starting to pop up in surrounding towns. Make sure you keep you phones and portable computers charged."
"The combination of heavy snowfall and strong winds will produce Whiteout conditions and extremely dangerous travel. Shoveling of heavy snow will be problematic for those with physical ailments. Snow will cling to wires and trees which could cause numerous power outages. Roads will be impassable due to increasing snowfall rates of 2 to 4 inches per hour at times in heavier bands. Snow drift up to 6 feet are possible," they added.
Numerous Madison downtown businesses have closed including Wholefoods, Provident Bank and Shanghai Jazz.
Madison police are urging residents to stay off the roads.
