TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey's Emergency Operations Center has opened to monitor a winter storm that could pack blizzard conditions in part of the state and threaten the storm-battered coast.
Most of the state is seeing light rain Friday. Forecasters say that rain will turn to snow and will make driving treacherous throughout the evening.
NJ Transit buses and trains are cross-honoring tickets and officials are urging commuters to try to head home early before the weather worsens Friday. Additional trains will operate during the afternoon.
A blizzard warning for northeast New Jersey calls for as much as 14 inches of snow. Up to 10 inches are possible for most of the state, with 2 to 5 inches in south Jersey.
The coast could see wave heights of 12 feet and moderate flooding.
