As snow continued to fall throughout the northern part of New Jersey Tuesday afternoon, the evening commute looked to be a possibly dangerous and messy trip for many.
A winter weather advisory was issued by the National Weather Service and is in effect until 7 p.m. for multiple counties, including Morris, Somerset, Warren and Sussex.
“This winter weather advisory means that periods of snow will cause travel difficulties,” the alert from the NWS said. “Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibility. Use extra care while driving.”
The advisory said that the precipitation will be mainly snow, mixing with rain at some locations. Accumulations were predicted to reach between 2 to 4 inches.
The snow was expected to continue through the day, mixing with rain during late morning and afternoon, with precipitation remaining all snow in elevated areas.
The advisory warns of the possibility of iced roads by the evening commute as temperatures fall with the loss of daylight.
