Paterson residents brace for snow just days after severe flooding from storm hits area

The City of Paterson is once again on high alert with potential snow coming all while still dealing with the aftermath of last week’s storm.
Paterson residents were consumed by severe flooding just days ago, with parts of the area still dealing with floodwater from the Passaic spilling over its banks. And now with temperatures already below 30 degrees and falling, those already wet roads could easily freeze up.
"I was also nervous that it would freeze over when it was a couple of feet higher and then we would really be stuck in there,” said Paterson’s Neil Ghazaii. “It's really been a nuisance."
Paterson and its surrounding areas could see between 2 to 5 inches of snowfall Monday night into Tuesday.
