A New Sierra Nevada Winter Storm Watch

Officials are warning that the heavy snow would make road travel extremely hard in many areas.

News 12 meteorologists were expecting much of Westchester and the Hudson Valley to see 4-8 inches of snow, with some isolated higher amounts possible, especially in Westchester and Rockland counties.

The current storm system had already dumped between 3 and 6 inches of snow in many central areas of the country before it moved northeast.

"While the precipitation will end before the Monday morning commute, hazardous conditions should still be occurring from the earlier heavy wet snow and sleet", the statement went on to say.

A total of six to eight inches of snow accumulation are expected overnight. High winds are also expected.

The Governor encourages New Jerseyans to visit ready.nj.govfor important weather updates and safety information.

Hundreds of schools in New Jersey were forced to close last week after winter storms dropped almost 10 inches of snow.

A Winter Weather Advisory means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties.

The storm is expected to burn itself out between 7 and 9 a.m., giving way to cold temperatures.
