NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The second shot of winter weather heading to New Jersey might bring more snow that previously expected.
The National Weather Service now says that parts of Hunterdon, Morris and Somerset Counties could see two feet of snow by the time the storm ends early Friday.
By mid-afternoon Thursday, a swath of the state from Camden County to Morris County already had about a foot.
In some areas, the snow paused in the afternoon, but it was expected to resume by evening.
Most schools and government offices and many businesses across New Jersey were closed in anticipation of the fifth major snowstorm of the winter.
