Gov. Phil Murphy declared a state of emergency for a winter storm that could close schools and create problems for thousands of commuters on Tuesday. The declaration will take effect at midnight and a partial travel ban was declared. A winter storm warning also was declared for six New Jersey counties. The state of emergency was declared for a system that could bring snow and ice and cause power outages and messy roads on Monday evening and Tuesday morning (see snow estimates below). “It’s going to be a mess pretty much everywhere,” Murphy said. The declaration means that the state will deploy extra resources to make sure that the roads are clear and safe on Tuesday. Murphy did encourage people to stay off the highways and a travel ban was declared for commercial vehicles on state roadways. A winter storm warning was issued for Sussex, Passaic, Morris, Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren counties while a winter weather advisory was declared for the rest of the state, except for Cape May County. The National Weather Service is now predicting that the Monday-through-Tuesday weather could be worse than originally expected. Schools could delay openings or close entirely on Tuesday.
