WARREN, NJ - After Sunday's surprise snowfall that snarled traffic along the Garden State Parkway, resulted in numerous accidents on Route 78 and delayed school opening on Monday,  forecasters say that more is on the way for Tuesday. 

The National Weather Service in New York has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for snow, which is in effect from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 10.

The advisory is for the Northeast region of New Jersey for hazardous snow conditions. Accumulation is expected between 2 and 4 inches with temperatures in the upper 20s.
Snow will develop Tuesday morning and will continue through the afternoon and will taper off by Tuesday evening.
Snow will develop during the morning commute, accumulating snow will create icy and hazardous travel conditions throughout the day.
Visibility will occasionally be below one-half mile in brief bands of moderate to heavy snow.
A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties.  Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibility.  Use caution while driving.
According to Warren Township School District Superintendent Dr. Tami Crader yesterday, the decision for tomorrow's schedule will be based on the timing of the snow and the expected accumulation. Crader states,"Although I like to give parents advance notice of delayed opening, closure, or early dismissal , the forecast is as yet unclear.  As always, you will receive information through our emergency alert system if school is delayed or closed.  If students are dismissed early, you will also be notified.  Please check our website in the morning and stay tuned during the day for updates. I encourage you to review your family's early dismissal plan. "
Calls were made this morning. Due to the pending storm, Warren Township schools will be closed today, Dec.10.
At Woodland School, alternate plans were announced yesterday for the second grade musical. One the following scenarios may be used to reschedule tomorrow’s second grade musical performance, if the weather becomes an issue.
