A major snowstorm will hit the area Friday night and last into Sunday morning, with many parts of our area getting 10” or more snow. The storm will be even more severe in the Washington, DC and Baltimore areas and less severe in New York City and Boston. This will cause a transportation nightmare for much of the East Coast. The storm will start as snow, but not until after 6pm Friday. Many roads will be pre-treated, so it might take until after midnight before conditions really go downhill. Travel Saturday is simply not recommended for most of the area, and the poor travel conditions may continue into Sunday morning. In New Jersey, a Blizzard Watch is in effect for the following counties - Mercer; Middlesex; Somerset; Camden; Gloucester; Northwestern Burlington; Salem; Atlantic; Cumberland; Ocean; Southeastern Burlington; Western Monmouth.
