PRINCETON: Winter storm warning in effect (Updated at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday)
Local schools closed today, cancel events for tonight
The National Weather Service has downgraded the amount of snow and the projected wind gusts for today during the remainder of Winter Storm Juno.

Snow accumulations have been projected between 4 to 8 inches, with snow becoming heavy at times through Tuesday morning when snowfall rates of a couple of inches per hour can occur before tapering off Tuesday afternoon. Wind gusts could still reach 25 mph.

The storm took a path 90 miles east of what the National Weather Service originally projected.



A Place for Film Lovers
The New Jersey Film Festival promises something for everyone
ANY movie lover is bound to make a list of his or her favorite movies of the year, and one of the films that made Al Nigrin’s list is WildLike. Not to be confused with Wild, the film that earned Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern Oscar nominations, WildLike stars Ella Purnell (Never Let Me Go) as Mackenzie, who is sent to live in Alaska with her uncle (played by Brian Geraghty of The Hurt Locker).

   When her uncle turns out to be a predator, Mackenzie escapes, hoping to make her way back to her Seattle home. She meets Bruce Greenwood (known to trekkies as Captain Pike in the recent Star Trek movies), and as the two work together to make their way through the Alaska wild, they share experiences and learn about each other.

   ”It’s ultimately about two people who were doing soul searching that find each other,” says Mr. Nigrin, the director of the New Jersey Film Festival at Rutgers. “And it’s not a romantic film, it’s more a father-daughter relationship than anything else.”
