·1 min read

A winter weather advisory has been issued for Ocean County by the National Weather Service early Wednesday morning, due to anticipated icy conditions overnight.

The advisory will be in effect from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Wednesday, with freezing rain expected to produce “a light glaze” of ice over existing wet surfaces from Monday’s snowstorm in South Jersey.

The conditions could cause “very slippery sidewalks, roads and bridges” with the hazardous conditions expected to impact the morning commute, according to the weather service’s station in Mount Holly.
