      WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO NOON EST FRIDAY FOR SUSSEX-WARREN-MORRIS-HUNTERDON-SOMERSET-MIDDLESEX-MERCER-CAPE MAY-MONMOUTH-SALEM-GLOUCESTER-CAMDEN-BURLINGTON-OCEAN-CUMBERLAND-ATLANTIC-ESSEX-HUDSON-UNION-BERGEN-PASSAIC COUNTIES.
       
      A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM DEVELOPING OFF THE SOUTHEASTERN COAST WILL INTENSIFY TONIGHT AND MOVE NORTHWARD ALONG THE EASTERN SEABOARD THROUGH THURSDAY. AS THE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM REACHES ITS STRONGEST POINT, IT IS EXPECTED TO MOVE WESTWARD AND BACK ONTO LAND NEAR LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK ON THURSDAY, AND REMAIN NEARLY STATIONARY THROUGH FRIDAY.
       
      PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN LATER THIS EVENING, AND COULD START OUT AS EITHER RAIN OR A MIXTURE OF RAIN AND SNOW. HOWEVER, PRECIPITATION WILL CHANGE OVER TO ALL SNOW OVERNIGHT TONIGHT AND LAST THROUGH THE EARLY PART OF FRIDAY. THE HEAVIEST SNOW IS EXPECTED TO BE THURSDAY INTO THURSDAY NIGHT WITH TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS RANGING FROM 8 TO 12 INCHES IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE STATE, AND 12 TO 18 INCHES ACROSS THE CENTRAL AND NORTHERN PARTS OF THE STATE. THIS IS THE TIME WHEN THE STORM WILL BE AT ITS STRONGEST AS WELL, WHICH WILL LEAD TO STRONG WINDS UP TO 30 MPH. THESE STRONG WINDS WILL LIKELY LEAD TO BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW, AS WELL AS SCATTERED POWER OUTAGES.
       
      THE SNOW COULD BE A HEAVY, WET SNOW, SIMILAR TO THE LAST STORM, WHICH MAY HAVE AN EFFECT OF TREES AND BUILDING OVERHANGS. SHOVELING SNOW WILL BE DIFFICULT WITH THIS STORM. ANYONE VENTURING OUT TO SHOVEL SNOW IS ADVISED TO USE CAUTION WHEN SHOVELING SNOW AND TAKE FREQUENT BREAKS.
       
      A WINTER STORM WARNING MEANS SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF SNOW...SLEET...AND ICE ARE EXPECTED OR OCCURRING. STRONG WINDS ARE ALSO POSSIBLE.  THIS WILL MAKE TRAVEL VERY HAZARDOUS OR IMPOSSIBLE.

        UNION - 15"+
        SOMERSET - 15"+
