In New York City, the sanitation department issued a snow alert Thursday night.

There will bit a mix of rain and snow, more snow coming to the interior of NYC and more rain by Long Island.

Forecasters predict New Jersey will get an early taste of winter, with light snow predicted to fall over parts of the state.

They say the greatest accumulations are possible at the higher elevations north of Interstate 78.

A dusting also is possible in Middlesex, western Monmouth, Mercer, Salem, Gloucester, Camden and northwest Burlington counties.

Because temperatures are expected to be near freezing, motorists may face icy driving conditions on Friday morning.

City workers in NYC will be loading salt spreaders, attaching plows if necessary, preparing tire chains and notifying extra personnel as needed.
