NEW YORK (FOX5NY.COM) - Several schools in New Jersey and at least a couple in New York are reporting a delayed start for Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018, because of the mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain that pelted the area.
The National Weather Service expects the overnight cold to ice up the roads resulting in a potentially dangerous commute.
"Temperatures will drop through the 20s into the teens by morning as a gusty northwest wind of 20 to 30 mph develops. This will cause the remaining slush and moisture to freeze solid," the NWS said in a statement. "Be alert for icy spots when traveling about overnight and Thursday morning. Additionally, where there may still be a glaze of nearly a quarter inch on trees, the gusty winds may cause isolated power outages overnight."
