Winter Blast Closes Schools, Slows Travel

The first snowstorm of 2014 has dumped more than 10 inches of snow in some portions of New Jersey and residents awoke to snow covered cars, roads and walkways. Most school districts have canceled classes for the day and many government offices are closed. Gov. Chris Christie declared a state of emergency for New Jersey.

Temperatures have also plummeted and forecasters expect highs only in the teens for Friday.

NJ Transit is cross honoring tickets system wide for the day because of the weather. The transportation company is reporting delays.

Newark Airport is also reporting heavy cancellations because of the storm. Travelers should check with their carriers before heading to the airport.
