The worst of Winter Storm Juno has officially passed and, as of this morning, the National Weather Service (NWS) has cut its snowfall predictions to about half of the more than two feet originally predicted.
NWS says the blizzard was inaccurately forecasted because the storm traveled further east than expected.
Winter storm warnings will remain in effect until 3 pm in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union and Warren counties, with Bergen, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean and Passaic projected to see between 8 to 12 inches of total accumulation. Winter storm advisories are being observed in Burlington and Camden counties.
While little snow is expected throughout the rest of the day, the NWS says 15 mph winds and 45 mph gusts will cause snow drifting and power outages, and evening snow showers are a possibility.
Travel bans on Interstate 195 have been lifted, and NJ Transit will begin limited service for trains at 10 am and buses at 11 am.
