How much snow fell in NJ? Totals for Jan. 29, 2022

Scroll down for snowfall totals updated Saturday afternoon.

New Jersey woke up Saturday morning to double-digit snowfall along the coast but New Jersey 101.5 Meteorologist Dan Zarrow said at 9 a.m that we had “turned the corner,” with snowfall expected to taper off through the afternoon.

While the threat of coastal flooding subsided Saturday morning, additional light snowfall and drifting snow from the wind could continue to be a problem, Zarrow said.

“It’s a statewide event but the shore is getting clobbered the most,” Gov. Phil Murphy said Saturday morning during The Big Joe Henry Show on New Jersey 101.5.

Murphy on Friday declared a state of emergency and urged residents to hunker down on Saturday and stay off the roads. He told Big Joe that most people heeded that recommendation.

Murphy said more than 3,000 pieces of road equipment were deployed across the state but the drifting snow would impede the progress of snow clearing into the afternoon.

See below for the snowfall totals so far on Saturday morning.

The blizzard conditions brought below-freezing winds but the state’s utility companies were only reporting a smattering of power outages Saturday morning: JCP&L had about 600 customers without power, Atlantic City Electric another 266, and PSE&G just a half dozen before 9:30 a.m.

The roads, however, were a different matter with slow-moving traffic and commercial vehicle restrictions on the state’s interstate highways. Garden State Parkway remained snow-covered between the New Jersey Turnpike and the Atlantic City Expressway.

The region’s airports canceled hundreds of flights Saturday morning. (Newark EWR info | Philadelphia PHL info | JFK info | LaGuardia info | Atlantic City info)

NJ Transit also suspended its bus services Saturday morning. Service was expected to resume Sunday morning. Rail service continued with weekend schedules.

The storm was expected to dump snow from Virginia to Maine, with parts of Massachusetts expecting as much as 30 inches.
