Gov. Chris Christie has declared a state of emergency in several New Jersey counties, and many schools across the region are closed, including Philadelphia public and Archdiocesan schools.

Low visibility was reported in many places in South Jersey as the snow corresponded with strong winds. Gusts of up to 50 mph are expected during the potent storm.

The snow and wind will be followed by a deep chill, with temperatures plunging into the single digits overnight. More cold weather is expected over the weekend, with the temperature not expected to rise above freezing until Monday.
