The first snowstorm of the year has come and passed and residents throughout North Jersey were shoveling and digging snow in low temperatures Friday.

The region was hit with up to 8 inches of snow between Thursday evening and Friday morning. Temperatures will remain in the single digits throughout the weekend. 

Millburn School District was closed Friday due to the snowstorm. The district stated the closing was due to the impending winter storm.

Gov. Chris Christie declared New Jersey in a state of emergency Thursday and encouraged everyone to stay off the roads.

NJ Transit will be cross-honoring tickets through Friday. Customers can use their ticket or pass on an alternate travel mode — rail, light rail or bus — including private bus carriers, according to their website.

The northeastern part of the state remains under a winter storm warning until 1 p.m. on Friday.
