Roads in New Jersey were getting a coat of salt on Sunday in preparation for possible wintry weather overnight, state officials said, and officials are taking the precautions days after the season's first snowfall crippled the Garden State.
Storm Team 4 predicted possible snowfall in the Catskills, but said flakes weren't likely in New Jersey. The I-80 corridor could see some freezing rain.
The precautions come just days after a winter storm dropped several inches of snow across the tri-state and brought traffic to a standstill in parts of New Jersey and New York.
In addition to the salt, NJ Transit tweeted that personnel including electricians, station maintenance staff and contractors would remain on-call throughout the night to deal with any weather-related issues.
The state's Department of Emergency Management said two clipper systems were expected to hit northern New Jersey this week, with the first bringing a dusting of snow overnight for Sussex County and parts of Warren, Morris and western Passaic counties.
The announcement gave winter driving tips and safety rules.
