TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A light wintry mix of rain and snow has started falling in southern New Jersey, the opening salvo from a massive coastal storm that will give the state a glancing blow as it moves by the coast.
The precipitation will make its way across the state and change over to snow by Tuesday night. That could create some slippery travel conditions overnight, but most areas should see little snow from the storm.
A winter weather advisory is in effect from 4 p.m. Tuesday until 2 a.m. Wednesday for Ocean, Cumberland, Atlantic Cape May and southeast Burlington counties. Those areas could see 2 to 4 inches of snow.
Less than inch of snow is possible for grassy surfaces along and north of Interstate 78, while 1 to 2 inches are possible south of I-78.
