EDISON - A storm system moving toward the Garden State could produce some snow accumulation in northwestern parts of the state this weekend.

A winter storm warning has been issued for Sussex, Warren, Morris, Somerset, Bergen, Passaic and Hunterdon counties.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist Dave Curren says that the snow and rain will make travel very difficult. The heavy, wet snow will cling to everything and downed trees and branches could cause property damage and power outages.

Curren says parts of central Jersey could see 3 inches of snow. Curren says other areas of Central as well as southern New Jersey could see a wintry mix with perhaps a dusting of snow on grassy areas.

Accumulations can range from as little as 3 inches in central New Jersey to as much as 6 inches or more in areas above 700 feet of elevation.
