The first new winter storms in New Jersey will be a messy shuttle on Friday morning and the school’s late opening so School closings and delays New Jersey
The light snow that developed across the state on Thursday evening left a layer of snow overnight and is expected to turn to rain as far north as Mercer and Middlesex by Friday as the precipitation flares, according to the head of meteorology in Townsquare, New Jersey.
As predicted, an overnight storm had little effect on Monmouth and Ocean counties, though the National Weather Service predicted a more “significant” storm could leave more snow on the state over the weekend in School closings and delays New Jersey
In Monmouth County, there were several 2-hour delayed openings:
- Atlantic Highlands Elementary School
- Henry Hudson Regional School
- Highlands Elementary School
- Millstone Township School District
- Upper Freehold Regional School District
In Ocean County, the Jackson School District announced that district officials were watching the weekend forecast and that students and parents should check back with the district website for updates on a basketball game between the Harlem Wizards and district staff. A final decision was expected later Friday.
