MONTVILLE, NJ - Residents are already planning for the major blizzard that is expected to hit NJ on Monday and Tuesday of this week.  Local food stores were packed today, as people are preparing for the storm, which is said to be the largest one in many years.

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning from 1 p.m. Monday to midnight Tuesday, for northeast New Jersey west of the garden state parkway. Heavy snow and blowing snow with blizzard conditions and temperatures in the mid-teens to mid-20’s are expected with snow accumulation of 20 to 30 inches. Snowfall rates are projected at two to four inches per hour, expected late Monday night into Tuesday morning. There will be winds of up to 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to 50 mph. Visibilities will be one quarter mile or less at times. Snow will be heavy and wet. Flat roofs and trees are susceptible to collapse.  Sleet and ice accumulations are expected.

Light snow will begin Monday morning, with accumulations of one to three inches possible by the evening rush. Snow will pick up in intensity on Monday evening, with the heaviest snow and strongest winds from about midnight Monday night into Tuesday afternoon.

According to the National Weather Service, there will be life-threatening conditions and extremely dangerous travel due to heavy snowfall and strong winds with whiteout conditions. Secondary and tertiary roads may become impassable. Strong winds may down power lines and tree limbs.

The blizzard warning means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds and poor visibilities will lead to whiteout conditions making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If traveling, one should have a winter survival kit with them. If one gets stranded, the National Weather Service says to stay with the vehicle.

According to the National Weather Service, all unnecessary travel is discouraged beginning Monday afternoon to allow people already on the road to safely reach their destinations before the heavy snow begins and to allow snow removal equipment to begin to clear roads.

As a reminder, residents should try to clear a three foot radius of snow around fire hydrants in their neighborhoods to help emergency personnel in case of emergencies.
