New Jersey school districts began announcing closings and delayed openings for Tuesday due to a major winter storm expected to dump 6 to 12 inches of snow on much of northern New Jersey overnight and in the morning trips.
The timing of the heaviest snowfall could make driving conditions Tuesday morning particularly hazardous in more than half the state.
Even in areas of central New Jersey where lesser amounts of snow, 1 to 4 inches, are expected, a change from rain to snow early Tuesday could create a messy, muddy mix on the roads, according to National Weather Service forecasts. Winds could also reach 35 mph.
The weather service has issued winter storm warnings for 10 counties with the highest expected snowfall totals.
