Heavy, Wet Snow Expected Monday
Two to four inches of snow is expected.
The calendar may say spring, but nobody told the weather.
The National Weather Service (NWS) released a hazardous weather advisory for the region which could bring rain and snow to Morris County as early as Sunday night and into Monday, possibly until early Tuesday morning.
Morris County officials said Saturday afternoon they expect two to four inches of "heavy and wet snow" to fall, according to a statement from Jeff Paul, director of the Morris County Office of Emergency Management.
Between one and three inches could accumulate on the ground. This is an increase from earlier estimates of one to three inches of snowfall with one-quarter to half an inch accumulation possible.
"Snow is expected to arrive around 5 [a.m.]-6 a.m. Monday and continue until approximately 1 [a.m.]-2 a.m. Tuesday," Paul said.
The NWS said the storm is still subject to change.
The advisory also affects Sussex, Warren, Somerset, Middlesex and Mercer counties.
