TRENTON, NJ (CBS) – With severe weather on the way, Gov. Christie has again declared a State of Emergency for New Jersey.

“This winter storm is expected to arrive tonight and last through early Friday morning, and the heavy snow will create hazardous travel conditions across the state,” said Governor Christie. “I’ve authorized state officials to continue all necessary actions, and my Administration will monitor conditions throughout the remainder of the storm. I encourage all New Jerseyans to drive carefully and remain off the roads if possible so that our first responders and public safety officials can safely respond to any emergency situations.”

The snow is expected to begin overnight and continue into tomorrow morning before changing to sleet and/or rain. There is the potential for fallen trees, flooding and power outages.
