Good afternoon,

Morris County Snow Alert: 4 to 10 Inches ExpectedThe National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for the pending storm scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 9.

The current forecast suggests that we will experience significant snowfall amounts which have the potential to cause travel delays on Thursday morning and afternoon. The data indicates a wintry mix is expected to approach the area between midnight and 1-3 a.m. on Thursday, which is expected to change over to snow shortly after.

In addition, the data suggests the snow will become heavy and continue through mid-morning with snowfall rates over 1-inch per hour, with the possibility of 2-to-3-inches per hour, depending on the storm track.

Current data shows that snow will diminish between 12 noon and 2 p.m. on Thursday.

We continue to see varying snowfall totals depending on which model you look at. However, the ranges are between 4-10” depending on your location within Morris County. This data may change as we get closer to the event.

We will continue to monitor the storm as we receive updated information!
