New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy declared a state of emergency Monday ahead of a large storm expected to bring snow to the area.

The latest forecasts indicate much of New Jersey will get snow & wintry mix throughout the night and into Tuesday.

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) also issued a Winter Weather Congestion Alert and are implementing the Department’s Business Day Protocol for Tuesday, February 12, based on the forecast for expected snow and freezing rain this afternoon into tomorrow, which may result in difficult driving conditions.

The Department is advising motorists to plan ahead. Snow is expected this afternoon in South Jersey and along the Shore that could affect today’s evening commute in those areas. Overnight and through Tuesday, snow is expected statewide, turning to freezing rain in parts of the state, which may cause difficult driving conditions.

NJDOT will be deploying the necessary resources in advance of the storm and is coordinating its response with NJ Transit and the toll road authorities to ensure the best response for New Jerseyans.
