You May Want To Head To Florida For The Weekend

snowThe National Weather Service said much of the state could receive a blanket of snow, along with heavy winds, from late tonight through Saturday night. A winter storm warning has been put into effect from 1 a.m. Saturday through 6 a.m. Sunday. Winds could reach 15 to 25 mph throughout the state. In southern areas of the state, from Ocean County down, snow could start as early as 1 a.m., with accumulation from 4 to 8 inches. From Monmouth and Mercer counties northward, accumulation is expected to be slightly lower, from 4 to 6 inches, and the snow should start closer to daybreak.

The coast could see winds from 25 to 35 mph on Saturday, with gusts up to 40 mph, said Kristin Kline, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. Coasts can expect higher seas, sometimes up to 8 to 10 feet Saturday afternoon. Areas immediately lining the snow could see a rain and snow mix in the day, changing to snow by Saturday night.

“Tomorrow is not the day to be traveling,” Kline said. “If you don’t have anywhere to go, stay at home. You don’t want to be going out as this storm is developing.”

High temperatures on Saturday are expected to reach the lower 30s.

This would be the first significant snow of the year for southern New Jersey. AP

  1. While you are looking to get away from the Snow storm, I bet all in the staff on duty from EMS will be gearing up to be there to help you during this blizzard. I guess this is one less thing we can all do away with.

    Good thing this comes during shabbos, maybe people will not need the help from all the motor vehicle accidents.

    Oh that’s right these private services (quality , GEM and MONOC) can cut you from your vehicle when you are injured and cold. Not,!! since they are not trained or equipt.

    I guess you will have to wait for another agency to come in and assist. Hey what is a few extra minutes amoung township committeeman.
