Steady snowfall on Saturday produced between 2 and 5 inches.
A winter storm brought several inches of snow to most of North Jersey on Saturday. The weather system, referred to as Winter Storm Freyr by The Weather Channel, was expected to drop 2 to 5 inches throughout the region. Snow began falling in most areas by late morning and started to taper off late Saturday night. The storm reduced visibility in some areas and caused treacherous travelling conditions. Skies are expected to clear on Sunday with temperatures in the low 30s. Initially forecasters were unsure if Freyr would track into Northern New Jersey or veer out toward the coast but their prediction was confirmed on Friday. According to a report on NJ.com, state Department of Transportation crews early Saturday morning pre-treated highways …

Northern New Jersey to see all snow and no ice or rain from fast-moving storm, expert says.
A low-pressure system originating from the Gulf of Mexico headed for the Northeast will make for a snowy Saturday in northern New Jersey, according to the National Weather Service. The fast-moving storm that has deposited precipitation in other parts of the country will likely produce 2 to 4 inches of snow in Bergen, Hudson, Passaic, Union and Essex counties Saturday, with areas to the north and west—Morris, Somerset, Sussex and Warren counties—likely seeing less, meteorologist Lauren Nash said. “We’re still somewhat uncertain about the absolute track of the storm,” Nash said, “but it seems very likely northern New Jersey will get just snow and no rain or ice.” The snowfall is expected to begin around 7 a.m. Saturday, Nash said, and should…
Track of storm still undetermined; snow could accumulate to several inches.
Just 30 miles could mean the difference between no precipitation and several inches of snow this weekend for Northern New Jersey, according to the National Weather Service. As a low-pressure system works its way to the northeast out of the Gulf of Mexico, freezing temperatures could create some severe weather and “plowable snow” Saturday into Sunday, National Weather Service meteorologist Joey Picca said. As of Thursday afternoon, however, the exact track of the storm was still uncertain, Picca said, and Northern New Jersey will have to wait to see if the system heads toward the coast or straight through this portion of the state. “It’s about a 30-mile difference (east or west),” Picca said. “Depending on that track, it could make a world …

Get out there and build that snowman, and then let Patch readers see it!
So, the calendar says it’s Oct. 29. But it looks like Mother Nature wants to jump ahead a few months to mid-winter, judging by the looks of things outside. The snow is falling hard, and it doesn't look like it's going to stop anytime soon. The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a winter storm warning for the area, with as much as 1 foot of snow expected in some areas. The snow is expected to fall through most of the day on Saturday and into the evening. This weekend's pre-Halloween storm is expected to pick up during the Saturday afternoon hours, producing as much as 1 to 2 inches per hour, according to the NWS. Reduced visibility will make traveling difficult, the NWS said. The weight of the snow could bring down tree limbs and …
