The rain will continue into Saturday morning and is expected to turn into snow by Saturday afternoon for some parts of New Jersey. Daytime highs on Saturday will only be in the upper-40s.

The rain and snow should clear up by Saturday night, followed by cloudy skies. Windy weather is expected to remain. Overnight lows will be around 22 degrees.
