TL;DR news on Winter storm warning at August 27, 2023
Travel will be difficult at times during the storm, with blowing snow expected to dramatically reduce visibility in open areas. In addition, coming off Winter Break, many New Jerseyans are headed "back to school" and "back to work" on Monday, for the first time in 2022. That's because North Jersey will be pretty far from the center of the storm system. Far NW NJ, this isn't your storm. .An area of low pressure will move through the Carolinas tonight and early Monday, while cold air sinks into the southern Appalachians behind an upper level storm system. And while New York City implemented a travel advisory ahead of the storm's arrival, the winter wonderful skipped the city and stayed south and east. New Jersey State Police said officers responded to approximately 200 calls for accidents during and after the storm. Although the snow threat is in the rearview, especially for those not in the storm's direct path, temperatures remain frigid for the entire region.
