UPDATE: Forecasts of the coming snowfall leaped to 18 inches, with blizzard-like conditions, for several New Jersey counties beginning Sunday night.

That means travel will be “very difficult to impossible” beginning with the arrival of a prolonged nor’easter around 7 p.m. Sunday and continuing through 1 p.m. Tuesday, the National Weather Service said Sunday morning.

Morris, Sussex and Warren counties are expected to get the worst of it, with 15 to 19 inches of snow expected. Most of the snow there will fall during daylight Monday at a projected clip of an inch an hour during its height.

The shore counties, meanwhile, could have as little as two to 4 inches, the service said. 

Here's how the other counties shape up:

Bergen, Passaic, Hudson, Essex and Union counties: 14 to 18 inches, with blizzard-like conditions (wind gusts 35-45 miles an hour).

Somerset, Hunterdon, Middlesex and Mercer counties: 13 to 18 inches, gusts up to 35 mph.

Monmouth, northwest Burlington: 7 to 14 inches, with sleet and rain affecting the total, but gusts up to 45 mph.

Ocean, southeast Burlington: 6 to 8 inches, with the same effect of mixed precipitation and wind gusts up to 45 mph. 

Salem, Gloucester and Camden counties:  8 to 12 inches, with a mix of sleet and rain, but with ice.

Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland and coastal Ocean: Two to 4 inches, mixed.

Among the major concerns: travel and power outages from downed wires.

Blowing and drifting snow should give drivers fits. Road conditions overall will be treacherous -- or, to quote the weather service, “very difficult to impossible” -- from Sunday night through much of Monday.

A coastal flood watch was issued from 7 a.m. Monday to 5 p.m. Tuesday in coastal Ocean, Atlantic and Cape May counties, as well as in eastern Monmouth, Middlesex, Ocean, southeastern Burlington and western Monmouth counties.

Roads in coastal and bayside towns could “become impassible,” the weather service warned. “Some damage to vulnerable structures may begin to occur.”

If you must travel, the service said, keep an extra flashlight, food, and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.
