    If you live in the northern shore area or in the New York City suburbs, it’s a good idea to stay put this morning.

    At 10:20 a.m., snow is still falling throughout most of the state, and roads remain slippery. Portions of Monmouth County are approaching a foot of snow, according to JSHN contributors. 

    Gov. Chris Christie lifted the statewide travel ban at 7:30 a.m. but asked people to remain at home if at all possible. 

    While reported crashes have been limited, a jack-knifed tractor-trailer on the New Jersey Turnpike in Edison is blocking multiple southbound truck lanes at 10:30 a.m., according to 511nj.org. 

    A speed restriction on the New Jersey Turnpike (north of Exit 6 to the George Washington Bridge) and Garden State Parkway (north of Exit 63 to the New York state line) continues at 35 miles per hour.
