Storm consisting of snow, rain and ice set to move across New Jersey

Posted: Updated:

New Jersey will see a storm Monday evening into Tuesday that is expected to make traveling difficult around the state.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist Dave Curren says that the storm will start off as rain and then change into sleet and snow as temperatures cool during the overnight hours. Winter weather advisories are in place for most of the northern half of the state.

Curren says that the storm will begin Monday evening, impacting the evening commute and continue through the overnight into Tuesday. Curren says that Tuesday morning’s commute is also expected to be impacted.

Curren says that while the storm will not produce too much snow, the major concern will be the ice. The ice could make roads dangerous for travel and could also cause trees and power lines to fall over, causing power outages. Areas in the state in higher elevations could see up to 4 inches of snow. But most of the state may see 1-2 inches of snow.

The storm is expected to clear out by late Tuesday morning, followed by mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the 30s.

Wednesday should be partly sunny with a high of around 38 degrees.

Thursday will be sunny with highs in the upper-20s.
