First Snow of the Season

Mount Olive Exxon MOUNT OLIVE, NEW JERSEY - The first snow of the season arrived dumping 6-12 inches on parts of Mount Olive Township today.

Snow Removal trucks were out in abundance helping to clear the wet accumulation. That didn't seem to help traffic much this morning. There were delays on Route 206, 46, and 10 due to ditched drivers and rubber-neckers. We also heard reports of slow moving traffic on portions of Interstates 80 and 78 due to minor fender-benders.

Some Morris County Schools made the call for a delayed opening or cancellation this morning. Mount Olive Township Schools were all open, with a 2hr delay and canceled after school activities.

The Mount Olive Township Board of Education begins this winter season with the Honeywell Instant Alert System. Parents are welcome and encouraged to sign-up and register information about your children and family for emergency contact details and preferences. School delay and cancellation information will still be posted on the Mount Olive School district telephone information hot line (973) 691-4019 and on local television and radio stations.
