Snowstorm ramps up across NJ; over a foot expected

Latest NJ weather: Updated snow totals, storm timing for winter nor'easter

SATURDAY: Mostly sunny. High: 40s.

Keep in mind, however, that New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy on Tuesday declared a state of emergency which requires vehicles off the roads after 8 p.m. on Tuesday night.

Depending on the storm's track, communities along the Interstate 95 corridor could see heavy rain, heavy snow or a mix of both.

And more cancellations are expected as conditions deteriorate during the day. Closer to Sheboygan and Green Bay, a winter weather advisory is in effect until Tuesday evening.

Wind gusts could reach 30-50 miles per hour Wednesday evening from New York City to Boston.

With more than 6 inches of snow anticipated, a winter storm warning is in effect for Nassau County and northwestern Suffolk County from 10 p.m. Tuesday until 4 a.m. Thursday, the National Weather Service said.

The nor'easter is expected to intensify as it moves up the coast, with snowfall rates up to 3 inches per hour. Minor flooding is expected for the rest of the eastern coast of the state.

For the second time in a week, a storm promises to barrel along the East Coast, bringing snow to NY and pounding coastal areas still cleaning up from last week's nor'easter. Thundersnow is also a possibility.

Snow will continue across northern and eastern New England Thursday morning and gusty winds will also persist, especially in eastern New England.

A period of light snow will begin tonight with snow transitioning to a period of heavier snow Wednesday. Pennsylvania and NY banned big rigs from some major highways.

At least 60 million Americans are in the storm's path, and a treacherous commute home is expected for those in the Northeast.

While not all schools had yet announced their closures, Philadelphia said all public and Parochial schools would be closed due Wednesday to inclement weather, KYW-TV reported. As you can see, the predictions are changing practically from hour to hour, so stay tuned to your local weather service for the latest predictions.

Several cities and towns have instituted parking bans.

"Overall there will be significant differences from zone to zone as within a 40 mile radius there could be 2 inches to 12 inches", the Weather Service says.

Expect downed trees, power outages, and blowing snow.

Even if the storm fails to develop to its full potential, which is a major nor'easter, it may cause further interruptions in fix and restoration operations following the early March storm. "I'd rather that it be full-on snowing than rain and slush".

The city of Philadelphia could see up to 8 inches of snow.

WEDNESDAY: Heavy snow. Winds will increase this afternoon.

As of late Wednesday evening, the top snow total was 26.8 inches in Montville, New Jersey.

Lingering heavy snow is likely in northern New England, particularly in central and northern ME, northern New Hampshire, northern Vermont and far upstate NY.

"We have to watch for a much warmer storm past the middle of the month which could combine with melting snow to raise the risk of stream and river flooding in the Northeast", according to AccuWeather Lead Long-Range Meteorologist Paul Pastelok.
