Steady snow snarls traffic as blizzard blankets New Jersey
A blizzard warning is in effect for New Jersey until Sunday morning. Parts of New Jersey could see up to a foot of snow, more in the northern counties.
The snow started falling around 8 a.m. on Saturday and spread further north. It is expected to continue until Sunday. Heavy bands of snow will hit in the afternoon producing snowfall rates of up to one inch per hour. This will reduce visibility and make driving conditions very hazardous.
Wind gusts will increase with speeds up to 35 m.p.h. A coastal flood warning also remains in effect with tides expected to be two to four feet above normal. People are advised to stay indoors and not travel on the roads.
