TRENTON, NJ – Periods of freezing rain passing through Sunday night into Monday morning could make for a slippery rush hour commute Monday morning, the National Weather Service said late Sunday night.

“Areas of light freezing drizzle are possible overnight and Monday morning across portions of the area. Temperatures will warm above freezing as the morning progresses with some drizzle or light rain and overcast conditions lingering through most of the day. Remain alert for slippery untreated roads or sidewalks Monday morning,” the NWS reported.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy said his office and the state are closely monitoring the developing situation.

“We’re closely monitoring the forecast for winter weather – with a mix of freezing rain, sleet, and snow expected to impact the state tomorrow. Please drive with caution, stay tuned to your local weather, and stay safe,” Murphy said.
