WARREN, NJ -  A Winter Storm Warning has been issued by the National Weather Service from 7 p.m. Sunday to 1 p.m. Monday. The forecast calls for snow, sleet and ice to accumulate between 3 and 8 inches before it moves out of the area. Winter Storm Linus has been spreading snow across a wide swath of the Midwest dumping a foot or more over Chicago. Linus is pushing into the Northeast with peak impacts from snow and ice expected to blanket our area Sunday night into Monday just before the Super Bowl half time show featuring Katy Perry. Meanwhile in Arizona, the Seattle Seahawks play the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX with a forecast of partly sunny and a high of 69 degrees.
 
In addition to friendly betting on the Big Game and the Puppy Bowl, Warren is wagering on the timing of the phone calls from area schools. Most agree that Monday will be a snow day- but will the call come Sunday night or Monday morning at 5 a.m.? Delbarton, Pingry and Far Hills Country Day School have made the call to cancel school and all after school activities on Monday, Feb. 2. No word yet on Warren Schools.
 
 
 
Forecasters anticipate hazardous travel conditions statewide to include the Monday morning commute. Systemwide cross-honoring of NJ TRANSIT rail, light rail and bus passes/tickets will be in effect on Monday, February 2 due to the impending winter storm.
 

New Jersey State Police have advised that snowy and icy roads will make for hazardous travel. They warn,"Have a game plan and make arrangements to get home safely. Be safe. Don't get behind the wheel if you've been drinking."
 
 
Be prepared for icy road conditions in Warren, especially Hillcrest Rd., Morning Glory Rd., Warrenville Rd., and Washington Ave.
 
Visibility could be reduced to a quarter of a mile or less at times, and snow-covered roadways will create hazardous travel conditions.
 
Drivers are urged to use caution.
 
In the event you lose power, contact your local power provider and not Police Communications unless an emergency exists:
PSE&G: 800-286-9247
JCP&L: 800-285-0515
Please help the Department of Public Works with snow removal by removing your vehicle from the side of the road.
 
Do not push snow from your driveway back onto the street. 
 
Please do not call 9-1-1 about snow removal from your street.
 
What is the difference between a Winter Storm Warning, Watch and Advisory issued by the National Weather Service?
 
Winter Storm Warning: Take Action! A warning is issued when a winter storm is imminent or occurring. If you hear a warning, immediately go home or shelter in place until it is safe to travel again. If you are home, bring in pets and plan to stay inside until you are told it is safe to go out again. Blizzards, extreme cold and windchill can quickly become deadly outside.
 
Winter Storm Watch: Be Prepared: A watch is issued when conditions are favorable for a specific hazardous weather event to occur. NWS issues a Winter Storm Watch when conditions are favorable for dangerous winter weather. It does not mean the weather will occur, but it is possible and you should start making preparations such as checking on isolated family members or friends, bringing in firewood, etc.
 
Winter Weather Advisory: Winter weather conditions are expected to cause significant inconveniences and may be hazardous. When caution is used, these situations should not be life threatening.
