Curren says that the snow should turn into sleet and freezing rain by Wednesday afternoon. The rain is expected to freeze over as temperatures drop Wednesday night.
Curren says that the ice is expected to be the bigger concern Wednesday night. The ice could cause trees and power lines to go down. Slick roadway conditions are possible and drivers are urged to use caution. Curren says that anyone in northwestern New Jersey should stay off the roadways as much as possible until the ice is cleared.
The snow and rain should be gone by Thursday. Mostly sunny skies are expected, with high temperatures of around 35 degrees.
Friday should see mostly cloudy conditions with the chance of light snow flurries. High temperatures should reach the mid-30s, with temperatures in the upper-teens overnight.
Temperatures should warm into the 50s for the weekend with rain expected Sunday.
