Snow slows another morning in NJ

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Snow is again slowing the morning commute across New Jersey and causing dozens of schools to close or delay opening.

Non-essential state employees have the day off Monday after Gov. Chris Christie closed state offices and declared a state of emergency.

Most of the heaviest snow is expected to fall in southern New Jersey.

A winter storm warning is in effect until 4 p.m. for Atlantic, Cape May, Salem and Cumberland counties. Forecasters say 6 to 10 inches of snow are possible there before it ends this afternoon.

Forecasters say 3 to 6 inches are possible along the Interstate 95 corridor in central New Jersey.

There are speed restrictions on the New Jersey Turnpike, Garden State Parkway and Atlantic City Expressway.

NJ Transit buses and trains are cross-honoring tickets.
