Gov. Murphy declares State of Emergency ahead of winter storm
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Phil Murphy is declaring a state of emergency effective at midnight as a winter storm is poised to dump snow, sleet and rain across New Jersey.
Murphy said Monday the northwest part of the state is bracing for up to 8 inches of snow. The northern and central parts of the state are expected to get snow as well as a wintry mix, while southern New Jersey is likely to see sleet turning to rain.
The governor says Interstates 287 and 78 will be closed to commercial vehicles when the declaration takes effect.
A decision about whether state offices will open on Tuesday is expected to come later Monday.
Murphy advised residents not to venture out in the bad weather and to report any power failures with their electric utility.
