Forecasters at The National Weather Serivce predict measurable snowfall and frozen precipitation in Northern NJ on Sunday.
According to NWS forecasters, the potential for snow-covered roads, especially on untreated roads, and lowered visibilities will begin in the northern part of the state around 2 pm.
Forecasters predict between 2-4 inches of accumulation in upper Essex, Passaic, and Sussex counties and freezing rain for places below Newark.
Snow amounts are significantly lower further south, mainly due to a mix of rain from predominately rain occurring according to The National Weather Serivce.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 10 am to 7 am Monday in Northern NJ as forecasters continue to observe the rain-snow line.
Timing of when/if rain may mix with or transition to snow at the end of the event early Monday morning. A light snow accumulation is possible if the change occurs faster than the current forecasted.
