From the Morris County Office of Emergency Management:

“We continue to monitor the Nor’easter from the Morris County Emergency Operations Center. At this time, the winter storm appears to be on track to reach our area this evening into Tuesday evening. We are preparing for what forecasters have described as a “Major Winter Storm”. The National Weather Service has issued a “ Winter Storm Watch” which is in effect from this evening through tomorrow evening.

The current data suggests that we may experience 2-4” per hour snow rates during the pre-dawn hours into early afternoon on Tuesday. Blizzard conditions and limited visibility are possible at the height of the storm, with prolonged blowing and drifting snow. At this time, the data suggests snow accumulations of 18-24” are possible depending on where the storm sets up. The heaviest snow and highest winds are expected through the morning and early afternoon tomorrow. Winds will be northeast at 15-30mph with gusts to 35-45mph late Monday night through Tuesday. We may experience scattered snow showers into Wednesday.

We encourage you to plan ahead. Click here to find the “Morris County Office of Emergency Management Winter Storm Preparedness Tips”.

We will continue to monitor the storm, and will provide additional weather updates as they become necessary.

Please adjust your plans accordingly, and stay safe!”
