EDISON - An overnight storm dropped several inches of snow on the Garden State Friday.

The storm was gone by the late morning, but snowy conditions slowed the early morning commute. Road crews were out early to plow the state’s roadways to ease some of the traffic conditions.

Some of the state’s schools were closed for the day, while others had delayed openings.

Parts of the state saw up to 6 inches of snow during the storm.

The snow did cause some power outages around the state, because powerlines fell due to the snow.

By Friday afternoon, most of New Jersey was under clear skies and warmer temperatures, which allowed many of the state’s children and their parents to go out and enjoy the snow. Many children were out sledding and the heavy snow was great for building snowmen.

This weekend is expected to see mostly sunny skies with temperatures in the 40s.

News 12 New Jersey meteorologists believe that the next chance for snow in the Garden State could be on Tuesday.
