TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey’s acting governor has declared a state of emergency in the wake of the powerful winter storm that roared into the state on Sunday.

State Senate President Steve Sweeney, who is filling in while Gov. Chris Christie and Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno are out of state, issued the order Sunday night.

But a decision on whether state offices would be open Monday has not been made.

Forecasters are expecting 12 to 20 inches in most areas by the time the snow stops early Monday. Blizzard warnings remain in effect for the eastern half of the state, while winter storm warnings were in place for western New Jersey.
