MORRIS COUNTY — Power Outages:

The majority of all Morris County JCP&L customers have been restored.

We expect rain to continue through the early afternoon before diminishing. We currently have temps in the mid-30s. We are anticipating that the temps will decrease to the low-30s later in the day, with a significant decrease after 6pm this evening, as we head into the mid to upper-teens by 10:00 p.m. We are anticipating refreeze issues today and into tomorrow as the frigid low temps continue.

Please be mindful of the temps and conditions. We have wet surfaces that will freeze making conditions dangerous.

Callahan has announced the commercial vehicle travel restriction will be lifted on all roadways with the exception of northbound traffic on interstate 287 including and between exits 41 (interstate 80 interchange) and 66 (New York State border) effective Sunday, January 20, at 7:00 a.m.

All vehicles previously listed in the restriction will be able to resume normal travel. Commercial vehicles entering the state should take note of possible speed restrictions on some roads.

We urge motorists to avoid unnecessary driving to allow plow crews to continue to clear the roadways.
