New Jersey will get a blast of winter weather on Saturday with snow and a wintry mix as the expected snow totals and advisories are extended.

Central and north Jersey counties look to get the most snow from the storm with 6-8 inches now expected to fall lightly starting Saturday morning and pick up intensity in the afternoon. The National Weather Service issues a Winter Weather Warning for Morris, Hunterdon, Sussex counties and a Winter Weather Watch for Bergen, Hudson and Passaic counties.

A Winter Weather Advisory is posted for Somerset, Middlesex, Mercer, Burlington, Gloucester, Camden and Salem counties


Snow begins to fall across New Jersey on Saturday morning except right along Shore areas where the change to rain happens first. The change continues from south to north in the afternoon with rain right along the coast and a change over to sleet and freezing rain and then rain by evening. The precipitation stays all snow the longest north of I-78.

The low pressure bringing the snow will not intensity until Sunday meaning winds and tidal flooding will not be a concern.


Less than an inch along the coast

  • 1-3 inches further inland in south Jersey and along the Route 1 corridor into inland Monmouth county.
  • 2-4 inches in Middlesex County, Somerset County, northern Mercer and southern Hunterdon
  • 6-8 inches north of I-78


The last of the precipitation in north Jersey should end early Sunday morning


The snow looks to be a major winter storm in New England where 8-10 inches is expected to fall in eastern and central Massachusetts into southern New Hampshire starting Saturday afternoon into Sunday.  Areas south of New Jersey will get mostly rain.
