Traffic is slow throughout the Garden State, but not slow enough to prevent over 100 accidents.
New Jersey State Police say troopers had responded to 145 crashes and 148 calls for assistance between midnight and 9:00 a.m. Thursday.
The speed along the New Jersey Turnpike has been reduced to 35 mph.
The heavy, wet consistency of the snow is providing a challenge for DOT crews plowing and salting the roads.
Snow was expected to continue falling through the afternoon.
Between 10 and 12 inches of accumulation is expected throughout the area.
People are urged to stay in their homes if possible. Motorists are asked to drive slow and be aware of their surroundings.
