njoemChristie Administration officials are monitoring a complex coastal storm system expected to impact the State tonight and into early Friday morning, bringing with it snow, mixed precipitation, rain and minor coastal flooding. Snowfall amounts will range from several inches, to as high as 14 inches, across the State. Areas north and west of the I-95 are expected to see the highest snowfall totals.

“We will see conditions deteriorate after midnight tonight,” said Colonel Rick Fuentes, State Police Superintendent and Director of the NJ Office of Emergency Management. “We are closely monitoring the situation with our partners from the National Weather Service and the County Offices of Emergency Management; and we are asking New Jersey residents to do the same. Be especially careful if you are on the road; driving will be difficult. Check in with elderly or disabled relatives, neighbors and friends. Those who live in coastal communities should be aware of the potential for high winds and minor coastal flooding.”
