SAYREVILLE - Residents around the state are preparing for a snowstorm that could dump up to 6 inches of snow on parts of New Jersey tomorrow.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for Bergen, Union, Passaic, Essex, and Hudson counties until Saturday morning. A winter storm advisory is also in effect for Ocean, Monmouth, Mercer, Middlesex, Morris, Sussex, and Warren counties until Friday afternoon.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist Dave Curren says the storm is forecast to bring far less snow, 1-3 inches for most parts, than the blizzard that hit last week. However, the northwestern part of the state could see up to 6 inches.

New Jersey State Police Supt. Colonel Rick Fuentes asked residents to be mindful of the potential winter storm

Fuentes said drivers should exercise safe-driving behaviors and realize that inclement weather and road conditions will impact their commutes. He says unnecessary travel is not recommended.
