Significant Winter Storm Possible From Monday Night Through Tuesday

An area of low pressure will track to our south through Monday.  Some light snow should develop through Monday afternoon and evening as a result.  The low pressure will then rapidly intensify off of the Northeast coast Monday night and Tuesday.  Uncertainty remains as to the exact track of this low pressure, but if it tracks close enough to the coast, portions of the area could see a significant snowfall.

Tanker crash delays trains in New Jersey

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- A tanker truck crash near railroad tracks in New Jersey's largest city has snarled the morning commute.

The tanker, which was carrying about 8,500 gallons of gasoline, burst into flames after colliding with a car on McCarter Highway adjacent to Amtrak's Northeast Corridor rail line in Newark at about 1:30 a.m. Thursday. The city's fire department says no one was injured.

Amtrak trains are running with minor delays while crews repair damaged signals and overhead wires.

New Jersey Transit spokesman John Durso Jr. says Raritan Valley Line service is resuming. The commuter railroad's Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line trains are operating with delays of up to 45 minutes.

Westbound trains are not stopping at Newark Airport.

Police are investigating the crash.
