EDISON - The wintry mix has turned into rain for most of the Garden State, but many of us will still be dealing with snow and ice overnight.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist Michelle Powers says roads will be slick and wet with a slushy mix of snow, rain and ice. Motorists should exercise extreme caution in their travels tonight.

Powers says the storm will continue to strengthen overnight, slide across the area and eventually out to sea for tomorrow. In the meantime, Powers says we will still see wind gusts of up to 50 mph and some even close to 60.

A winter storm warning is in effect for Sussex and Western Passaic counties through tomorrow afternoon.

Coastal flooding in the south is also a concern as New Jersey goes through a high tide cycle. Gusty, damaging winds carry the potential to cause power outages possible.

Accumulations should melt tomorrow as temperatures warm up to the upper 40s, but another storm system could be headed our way by the weekend.
