The northern tip of New Jersey is expected to ring in the new year with wintry weather Friday — including the possibility for icy roads and power outages.
A winter weather advisory remains in effect for Sussex County, as well as Carbon and Monroe counties in Pennsylvania, from 2 p.m. Friday to 1 a.m. Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.
The service expanded its winter weather advisory to include Morris and Warren counties Friday afternoon. Those advisories went into effect at 3 p.m. and last through 10 p.m.
Meanwhile, a winter weather advisory is also in effect for western Passaic County, as well as interior southern Connecticut and the Lower Hudson Valley, from 6 p.m. Friday to 4 a.m. Saturday, the agency said.
The storm is expected to drop less than an inch of snow, freezing rain or sleet on those regions before changing to rain. But it could lead to icy roads and dangerous travel conditions, as well as isolated tree damage and possible power outages in some areas, the agency said.
Most of the rest of New Jersey could see between a half-inch and 1 inch of rain Friday afternoon into Saturday morning. Temperatures could then rise into the 50s Saturday afternoon in northern and central Jersey and possibly into the 60s in South Jersey.
