Of particular concern is forecasts of snowfall rates exceeding one inch per hour at times during Tuesday morning. This rapid buildup can lead to dangerous driving conditions, especially along major transportation arteries such as the I-78 and I-80 corridors. We call on travelers to exercise caution and consider alternative travel plans if possible.
