TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jerseyans are bracing for a major winter storm that could drop could drop nearly two feet of snow in some parts of the state and create blizzard-like conditions in some counties.

Forecasters say the snow should start falling early Monday morning, with anywhere from 1 to 3 inches of snow in most areas.

Conditions will then worsen Monday afternoon as the intensifying, slow-moving storm socks the region with several inches of snow and gusty winds.

Forecasters warned that 10 to 20 inches could fall across the state through Tuesday afternoon, and even more could fall in some coastal and northern areas.

Winter storm warnings issued by the National Weather Service were in effect for most of New Jersey, while a blizzard warning was issued for Middlesex, Monmouth and Ocean counties and some small sections of north Jersey.
