EDISON - Get ready for some weather whiplash. After all the record-breaking warmth, some wintry weather is making its way to northern New Jersey.

News 12 meteorologists say cooler weather is expected for Monday, when highs will top out in the low 40s.

The cooling trend will continue Monday night, and a wintry mix of snow, freezing rain and sleet is expected to arrive for northern New Jersey early Tuesday morning.

The Tuesday morning commute could be affected by the wintry mix, which may make for slippery roads. Drivers are urged to give themselves extra travel time.

A winter weather advisory will be in effect for Morris, Sussex and Warren counties, along with western parts of Passaic County, for Tuesday morning.

By late Tuesday morning, the precipitation will change over to all rain as temperatures climb up into the 40s. Rain showers are expected for the rest of the day Tuesday.

Wednesday and Thursday are expected to see a return to the warmth with highs in the mid-50s. Thursday will see a chance of showers.
