Towns along the Jersey Shore are getting prepared for the potential of more than a foot of snow, along with the possibility of coastal flooding from a January nor’easter.
Parts of the shore could see up to 18 inches of snow by Saturday afternoon. The storm is coming in from off the ocean, so coastal flooding is a possibility.
The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for parts of the state along the coast.
Crews were out in the area and across New Jersey earlier on Friday to prep their equipment and get ready to clear the roadways once the snow starts to come down heavier.
Gov. Phil Murphy has declared a state of emergency for New Jersey and has urged all New Jersey residents to stay off the roadways as much as possible while the snow is falling.
