Weather forecasters are having hard time reaching a consensus on how much snow will fall Monday in New Jersey during the back end of a two-day storm.
While there’s general agreement that Sussex County is likely get hammered with at least 6 inches of snow and that Southern New Jerseycounties likes Cape May, Cumberland and Salem will receive primarily rain, projections vary widely on what the storm will deliver to points in between.
In general, forecasters say rain and a wintry mix dropping across the state will change to all snow by late morning and early afternoon. Snow could be heavy at times later Monday before winding down overnight.
The evening commute, in particular, could be difficult as snow intensifies. Dozens of
school districts have called for closures and early dismissals. Gov. Phil Murphy also announced plans to send state workers home early at noon.
Commercial vehicles remain banned from sections of Interstates 78, 80 and 287. There are also speed restrictions on the Garden State Parkway and Turnpike,
Here are the projections for snow totals from seven different forecasters:
