Santa should feel right at home when he arrives this weekend–Sunday, Dec. 1, 2019–for the Christmas Festival at the Morristown Green.
Snow, sleet and freezing rain are forecast, in the season’s first Winter Storm Warning.
It’s in effect from 4 am Sunday until 1 am Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2019.
The National Weather Service predicts five- to 11 inches of snow, and a tenth-of-an-inch of ice for Greater Morristown:
Travel could be very difficult. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening commute.
This will be a long duration storm with two main periods of winter weather. Conditions on Sunday are expected to consist of a mix of snow, sleet, and ice, with snow
accumulations mainly 2 inches or less along with freezing rain. A lull in precipitation is possible Sunday evening. Most of thesnow that is forecast is then expected to occur later Sunday night and Monday.
As of this posting on Saturday evening, Sunday’s 5 pm arrival of Santa still is going forward as planned.
St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Morristown has postponed its Advent Lessons and Carols service, which had been set for Sunday at 6 pm, and rescheduled it for next weekend, Dec. 8.
We will post updates as information becomes available.
We hope your post-Thanksgiving travels are safe, and that you can ride out the storm with plenty of tasty leftovers.
