SPARTA -

Parts of northwestern New Jersey woke up to a white Christmas Monday.

Residents living along Lake Mohawk in Sussex County received up to an inch and a half of snow.

The snow accumulated overnight and stopped early in the morning, only leaving a coating on the ground.

Residents say they enjoy the snow on Christmas because it adds to the beautiful lakeside scenery.

A wind advisory is in effect until 6 p.m. with winds expected to be 20 to 30 mph with gusts of 40 to 50 mph, according to the National Weather Service.
