As of 10 am on Tuesday, March 14, 2017, sleet is pummeling Morristown. The National Weather Service has a blizzard warning in effect through 6 pm for northern New Jersey.
“That becomes a concern for trees and power lines, especially with the wind,” said Mayor Tim Dougherty. Road crews have been out since 1 am, he said.
News 12 predicts 14 inches of snow for Morristown.
Earlier this morning, Jeff Paul of the Morris County Office of Emergency Management added this:
The current forecast data for Winter Storm Stella has indicated that heavy snow will continue into this afternoon with 1-2 inches per hour snow rates for much of the day. The storm will be strongest during the morning into midday with up to 2-4 inches per hour, with possible thundersnow and blizzard conditions. Winds will increase through the event, sustained between 20-30 mph, with gusts up to 25-45 mph with prolonged blowing/drifting. We expect that the brunt of the storm will exit in the area around 3 pm this afternoon, with light snow into the evening ending between 7 pm – 9 pm.
