Two Rounds of Snow to Ring in the New Year

Up to 8 inches of snow could accumulate in Morris County on Wednesday and Thursday.

Getting ready to emerge from that long winter's nap and send the kiddies back to school on Thursday?

Well, not so fast. The return to normalcy may be short lived. 

According to the Morris County Office of Emergency Management, there are two weather disturbances that will be sliding into the area just in time for the New Year. 

"We may see some intermittent snow Wednesday evening with the possibility of light snow and flurries Thursday morning," Director of the Office of the Morris County Emergency Management Jeff Paul said. "According to the data, this is nothing to concern ourselves with. If it takes place, it is only forecasted for a dusting to less than 0.5 inch."

Paul said the bigger threat is Thursday as the current long range forecast for Thursday and Friday afternoon and evening show the potential for a total of 4 to 8 inches of snow.

"We have seen a few models that suggest 5-10 inches but we see more consistent reports in the 4-8 inch range at this time," Paul said. "This could change as we get closer to the event."

The Morris County Office of Emergency Management said they will continue to monitor the data and update as the storms approach.  

And so, of course, will Patch.

Montville is already out putting down what I guess is brine to salt the roads. But yet again not all roads are being done. What's the story with that??
