Focus on Morris County

Today, Dec. 7, 2016, we are remembering the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor and the more than 2,000 lives lost on what had been a peaceful, beautiful Sunday morning in Hawaii on Dec. 7, 1941. Read a statement by our Freeholders commemorating this day.

Good afternoon,

We will be monitoring the weather through the weekend, and we will provide an update, should it be necessary. At the moment, there continues to be a great deal of variance with timing and precipitation types, so the forecast data will likely change. The current data suggests that we will see snow Sunday afternoon with a range of 0.5” – 3”. Actual snow fall will depend on how quickly the snow changes to rain. Several current data models are leaning toward the lower end of the range. The forecast data confidence will improve by Saturday evening, or early Sunday morning. We will be monitoring, and will provide an update if there are any significant changes!

Have a great weekend

Good evening,

The forecast appears to be on track for a little snow overnight. The data suggests that snow will begin working its way into the County tonight at around 3am and continuing into Monday morning ending as a rain/snow mix or all rain by 10-11am. Accumulations may reach 1/2" across the county with the possibility of up to an 1" north, near Jefferson. The southern parts of the county near New Vernon, Madison and Chatham may stay a rain/snow mix through much of the event with little to no accumulation.
