News 12 Storm Watch (1/2/14)

EDISON - The first snow storm of 2014 has settled over NJ.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist Dave Curren says the snow will continue this evening, bringing significant accumulation, low visibility and frigid temperatures.

Temperatures should drop into the low single digits by Friday night, with subzero wind chills likely in most areas.

Winter storm warnings were issued for northern Jersey, where 6 to 9 inches of snow is expected by the morning, while winter storm watches were issued for central and southern areas, which could get 5 to 8 inches. The advisories will be in effect through Friday morning.

Strong, gusty winds are expected with the storm, meaning travel could be dangerous. Curren says there could be near-blizzard conditions at times along the shore and in northwestern New Jersey.
