Many areas in the northern part of New Jersey got ready throughout Sunday for Monday's storm.
Passaic County is just one of the areas set to see anywhere between 3 to 6 inches of snow.
The plow trucks at the Department of Public Works in Paterson were already in formation, ready to pick up whatever Mother Nature puts down.
"We have to take the necessary precautions, so we will be here all night. Last storm we had a few weeks ago, we had 28 trucks out, so that's what we're going to plan for in the event that we need those 28 trucks, we have them," said City of Paterson Mayor Andre Sayegh.
Paterson is not expecting to see as much snow as the western parts of Passaic County. However, the city plans to focus on the hilly roads.
Sussex County and the western part of Passaic County are likely to see plowable snow. There were already winter storm warnings in effect and that was what sent residents to the grocery store for the essentials.
