Heaviest Snowfall Expected to Stay South

National Weather Service has downgraded accumulation predictions for Northern New Jersey to 4 to 8 inches.

Northern New Jersey may dodge the worst of the latest winter storm.

A fierce storm, originally projected to dump more than a foot of snow in the area, is now expected to hit South Jersey the hardest and produce no more than 8 inches in northern parts of the state, according to the National Weather Service.

A winter storm watch has been issued for most of North Jersey with 4 to 8 inches expected by Monday morning, the NWS reported. Snow, which may mix with sleet and freezing rain, is expected to begin Sunday afternoon and continue through Monday morning, reducing visibilities at times to one-quarter to one-half mile, the NWS said.

Temperatures are also expected to drop with lows in the single digits Monday and highs reaching only the mid-20s through Wednesday.

Everyone can relax. They are now only predicting about an inch of snow in the Essex County area.

@Sir - I disagree, 2-3 years ago Patch served us well in Irene and Sandy, providing hyper local news that was less subject to rumor than social media. In it's current form, Patch is neither hyper local, nor timely in its coverage. As much as I'd prefer to go elsewhere instead of this watered down version, there is no where else to go. So I'll keep complaining about how ineffectual it is until it's owner see fit to improve it or shut it down.
