NJ Weather: Here’s how much snow fell in your county during the Great Winter Storm


Many areas of New Jersey became a winter wonderland on Wednesday evenings and Thursday mornings when a strong coastal storm dropped nearly a foot of snow in some parts of the state and more than half a foot in many others.

At 8 a.m., light snow will continue in northern and central New Jersey, so the amount of final snowfall will increase slightly in the coming hours.

So far, the snow measured on the ground has not been as high as most forecasters predicted in northern New Jersey – tinny rain has hit the numbers – but it is still one of the biggest snowstorms to hit the state in almost two years and many roads. stir.

The heaviest amounts of snow were concentrated mainly in the northwestern counties of the state, Morris, Sussex and Warren counties, where double-digit snowfall accumulated in several cities at 8 a.m. Thursday morning.

Vernon Township had 12.3 inches of snow on the ground, Wantage and Frankford Pellettown were 10.7 inches each, Dutch Township was 10.5 inches, Belvidere was 10.4 inches, and Jefferson was 10.0 inches.

In the northeastern region of the state, Newark Liberty Airport in Essex County finished with 11-inch snow, and Harrison in Hudson County reported 9.7 inches.

In the case of Newark, the 5.5-inch snow that fell before midnight broke the daily record for the largest snowfall to date on December 16 in the state’s largest city. According to the National Meteorological Service, another 5.5 inches fell overnight, giving Newark a total storm of 11 inches.

Below is a summary of the latest snowfall summaries from the National Meteorological Service’s New Jersey Regional Forecasting Office and the New York Regional Office on Thursday morning.
