Commuters in parts of the tri-state area were dealing with some mixed precipitation as they headed home Wednesday night.

A mix of light rain and snow began falling in most areas by mid-afternoon, and the precipitation was expected to change over to all snow by dusk.

The snow was expected to continue until around midnight, with most areas seeing little or no accumulation. But an inch or so is possible in some northern areas.

Mixed precipitation is expected in parts of southern and central Jersey, changing over to a mix around Long Branch and central Jersey, and light snow northward.

Coastal Long Island through Suffolk County could see some light snow, too.

By 10 p.m., most of the snow is offshore and gradually comes to an end.

While not a major weather event, drivers were being urged to slow down because the wintry mix could leave roads slick and slippery.

The sun returns Thursday, and a cold snap sets in Saturday and Sunday. Saturday will have a few gusty snow squalls passing through that could whiten the ground, likely in areas northwest of the city and across Long Island.
