Posted: Saturday, January 24, 2015

The northwestern part of the Garden State was under a winter storm warning Saturday morning while the I-95 corridor was only facing a winter storm advisory.

The National Weather Service predicted a winter storm warning will remain in effect for Morris, Somerset, Sussex, Warren and Hunterdon counties until 11 a.m., with predicted snowfall totals of between four to eight inches for these areas along with a trace of ice.

Heavy to moderate snowfall was forecast to continue through 8 a.m. and then taper off to flurries before noon. Areas south of Route 80 may experience a mix of sleet and freezing rain.

Meanwhile, Bergen, Passaic, Essex, Mercer, Union, Middlesex and western Monmouth were facing a winter weather advisory Saturday. These counties can expect possible accumulations of two to four inches of snow, taping off to rain, sleet and freezing rain starting at 8 a.m.

Travel delays were expected through the Garden State due to slippery roads and limited visibility, according to the National Weather Service.

Another storm system, however, is expected to hit the region Sunday night into Monday morning, bringing more snow and cold air.
