N.J. school closings, delayed openings, early dismissals for Wednesday, March 7
A major winter storm expected to cause havoc on travel across much of New Jersey on Wednesday with up to 12 inches of snow has led schools districts across the state to announce closures, delayed openings and, even early dismissals.
The storm, the second to hit the state in less than a week, will feature less wind than Friday's nor'easter, but higher snow totals across a wide portion of the state.
Snow should continue through much of Wednesday with rates of an inch or more per hour possible before it tapers off at night, forecasters say.
As officials brace for this storm, there are still tens of thousands of homes and businesses who still haven't had power restored following last week's nor'easter.
The heavy, wet snow and strong winds could make matters worse. The National Weather Service said to expect downed trees and power lines, causing additional outages.
Gov. Phil Murphy on Tuesday afternoon declared a state of emergency beginning at 8 p.m. Wednesday evening. Winter storm warnings and watches issued by the National Weather Service begin taking effect as early as 7 p.m. for parts of the state.
