Cross your fingers. This one’s not supposed to be so bad.

The latest Winter Weather Advisory from the National Weather Service is calling for two- to three inches of snow overnight in Greater Morristown. The advisory runs from 8 pm on Monday, March 12, 2018, until 10 am on Tuesday, March 13.

Light rain and snow are anticipated to change to all snow overnight, but this system is not expected to pack the punch of Riley or Quinn, this month’s nor’easters.

“Plan on slippery road conditions, including during the start of the Tuesday morning commute. Be prepared for reduced visibilities at times,” the National Weather Service reports.

Morristown Mayor Tim Dougherty said he was more concerned with the possibility for winds to knock down more branches and power lines.

News 12 predicts winds of 15-25 mph, gusting to 30, as temperatures fall into the upper 20s and lower 30s Monday night.

As of Monday afternoon, about 1,400 customers of Jersey Central Power & Light remained without power, according to the utility.  That included 27 customers in Morristown and 156 in Morris Township.

On Sunday afternoon, Morristown Green contributor Lee Goldberg saw utility crews from South Carolina, Kentucky and Ohio preparing to deploy from the Livingston Mall parking lot.
