HAZLET, N.J. – Snow is slowing the morning commute around New Jersey.

Friday's storm hit just as people started to head to work. The transition from rain to snow is making it difficult for road crews to get the upper hand and motorists are facing slippery conditions.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for the state.

Forecasters say 3 to 5 inches of snow are possible in eastern Passaic, Hudson, Bergen, Essex and Union counties.

Monmouth, Ocean, Cumberland, Atlantic and Cape May counties are facing 2 to 4 inches.

Mercer, Salem, Gloucester, Camden and northwest Burlington counties are expecting 1 to 3 inches.

Forecasters say the heaviest snow should end by 10 a.m. and the snow should taper off from west to east by noon.
