Christie Declares State of Emergency

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has declared a state of emergency in preparation for a winter storm that’s headed for New Jersey.

The governor also authorized the closing of state offices on Friday for all non-essential workers.

State offices and courthouses will be closed today, as will municipal offices in several affected towns. In addition, New Jersey Transit is cross-honoring all tickets.

The storm is expected to bring significant accumulation, low visibility and frigid temperatures. Most of the state is under a winter storm warning, with forecasters expecting 6 to 10 inches to fall in northwestern New Jersey by Friday, 4 to 8 in areas close to New York City and 4 to 6 in southern New Jersey. Strong winds and dangerously cold wind chills could accompany the storm.

The National Weather Service says there could be near-blizzard conditions at times along the shore and in northwestern New Jersey.
