MORRISTOWN, NJ - As of Monday morning, 76 homes in Morristown remain without power. There are 202 homes without power in Morris Township.
The Office of Emergency Management will continue to work with JCP&L until power has been restored to all residents. According to officials, there are currently 1,821 customers without power in 22 Morris County municipalities; Long Hill Township 506, Chatham Township 473, Harding Township 243, Parsippany 110, Chatham Borough 81. The remaining municipalities have fewer than 5 and no more than 27 without power, said officials.
Another storm is in the forecast for tonight into Tuesday. The National Weather Service is predicting 1 - 3 inches of snow overnight. Snow will continue Wednesday morning before noon but accumulations are expected to be less than one inch.
"We continue to monitor the coastal storm that will start in our area this evening and continue into Tuesday morning", said the OEM. "The current forecast data suggests that we may experience rain with wet snow late this evening before we see a changeover to all snow (light intensity) into early Tuesday morning. Temperatures during the snowfall are expected to be in the area of 32 degrees, which will create highly variable pavement coverage with some of the lower elevations not seeing the need for plowing. Higher elevations (i.e. hills, etc.) will likely see higher snow accumulations."
