TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Another major winter storm is headed to New Jersey, one that will likely drop several inches of heavy snow in southern areas but very little in the northern region.
Forecasters say snow should start falling in most areas by Sunday night, and could begin as light rain in some spots before changing over to snow.
A winter storm warning has been issued for most of southern Jersey, with 4 to 6 inches expected in most spots. But anywhere from 6 to 10 inches could fall Cape May and Atlantic counties.
Winter weather advisories were issued for central and southeastern areas, where 2 to 4 inches of snow was expected, while only an inch or so was expected to fall in northern areas.
The advisories were due to take effect early Sunday night and remain in effect through Monday morning.
Authorities are urging drivers to allow extra travel time for the Monday morning commute, as roads will likely be slick or snow covered in many areas.
The return of winter weather follows several days of spring-like temperatures in the area.
Highs on Monday are only expected to reach the mid to upper 30s, but temperatures should warm up as the week progresses and reach into the lower 50s.
