Keep your headlights on and go slow!
The National Weather Service has issued a dense fog weather advisory for the central New Jersey area this morning just in time for the morning commute. Visibility will be reduced to less than a quarter of a mile and may create hazardous driving conditions. The fog is from the wonderfuly mild weather we've been having for January. An unseasonably warm air mass has remained in place, but is now being pushed by a cold front which will help dispel the fog later this morning. Motorists are advised to leave plenty of distance between them and the cars in front. Follow Woodbridge Patch on Facebook, Twitter and sign up for the daily newsletter.

The central New Jersey area may receive a few inches of snow tomorrow.
We're in for snow this weekend, according to the National Weather Service (NWS), which has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Saturday for central and northern New Jersey. They are predicting snowfall starting here by mid-morning and continuing to as late as 7 pm, which they say may dump up from 2 to 4 inches in the area. A winter weather advisory means that the snow may cause travel problems, particularly on bridges and overpasses, which tend to ice up before regular road surfaces. Temperatures should be from the upper 20s to below freezing, the NWS advised, with visibility reduced to about half a mile at times during the snowfall.
