South Brunswick Police are reporting a significant amount of ice gathering on township roadways as a wintry mix falls on the area Monday evening.
"We haven't had any significant accidents yet, but we're asking people to take things slowly as ice continues to build up on the roads," said police spokesman Sgt. Jim Ryan.
The township Department of Public Works is currently treating township roads and bridges with salt, but police urge motorists to use extra caution.
The wintry mix is expected to shift back to rain and snow heading into the evening hours, before raining through the night, according to the National Weather Service. The NWS is calling for accumulations of up to 3 inches before it's all over early Tuesday morning.
On Tuesday, the rain is expected to end early before there are a few breaks of sun during the afternoon. Expect rain though, with nearly a quarter of an inch expected, and winds to be between 10 and 20 mph.
The forecast for the end of the week looks brighter with sun and a high of 41 on Thursday with a low of 27 at night. Friday will be much of the same with a high of 43 during the day and a low of 29 at night heading into the weekend.
