Steady snowfall on Saturday produced between 2 and 5 inches.
A winter storm brought several inches of snow to most of North Jersey on Saturday. The weather system, referred to as Winter Storm Freyr by The Weather Channel, was expected to drop 2 to 5 inches throughout the region.

Track of storm still undetermined; snow could accumulate to several inches.
Just 30 miles could mean the difference between no precipitation and several inches of snow this weekend for Northern New Jersey, according to the National Weather Service. As a low-pressure system works its way to the northeast out of the Gulf of Mexico, freezing temperatures could create some severe weather and “plowable snow” Saturday into Sunday, National Weather Service meteorologist Joey Picca said. As of Thursday afternoon, however, the exact track of the storm was still uncertain, Picca said, and Northern New Jersey will have to wait to see if the system heads toward the coast or straight through this portion of the state. “It’s about a 30-mile difference (east or west),” Picca said. “Depending on that track, it could make a world …
