      Please note the expected conditions...including the up to 0.25 inches of Ice noted in areas within the NNJ Section...that is enough to damage communications and power infrastructures ..including antennas and feedlines...

      ARES members should be quickly alerted to prepare for using backup power and possibly antenna systems both at home or at served agencies and to prepare now, well before the storm...

      The Winter Storm Watches that cover all 12 counties of the NNJ Section are included below
