Winter storm could slow Tuesday ride home in NJ

6 01 2009

TRENTON, N.J. – Snow and ice threaten to slow Tuesday’s ride home across New Jersey.

The National Weather Service says snow and sleet will fall over the state later in the day and throughout the night before changing to rain.

Winter storm warnings will be posted for Hunterdon, Somerset, Sussex, Warren, Morris and western Passaic counties. Forecasters fear the precipitation will change into freezing rain that could last past Wednesday morning’s rush hour.

As much as a half inch of ice could accumulate on trees and power lines in those counties.

Elsewhere, forecasters say a mix of snow and sleet will fall over most of the state before changing to freezing rain and rain.

Rain is most likely in south Jersey.
