Good morning,

Greetings from the Morris County Office of Emergency Management’s Emergency Operations Center. The National Weather Service has issued both a Winter Weather Advisory and a Hazardous Weather Outlook for Morris County. The Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 1am Sunday. A Winter Weather Advisory for snow, means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving. The latest data from the weather team suggests that the start time of accumulating snow has been pushed back due to the ambient dry air. The accumulation ranges remain the same at this time. Posted temps for this event are in the 26-34F range.
