NEW JERSEY (PIX11) — In New Jersey, city and county offices are announcing delayed openings and preparing salt and brine for the snowfall already underway.

Hudson County and Jersey City announced Sunday night that county and municipal offices will not open until 10:30 a.m. The delay also applies to county and city courts. Hoboken, Jersey City and Newark all suspended street cleaning for Monday.

Newark said they are pre-treating roads with brine and salt. Jersey City said 3,000 tons of salt is a the ready. Fifty-five to 60 plows and spreaders may also be deployed.

NJ Transit is cross-honoring system-wide Monday.

Light snow fell during the broadcast of Superbowl XLIX, but New Jersey football fans weren’t changing their plans.

“Definitely got to be careful, but I don’t think it will be too bad,” said Andrew Yulfo, a football fan on his way to a house party.

By the end of the fourth quarter there was a coating to an inch in northern New Jersey. But major roadways, like I-95 and the Garden State Parkway were clear. Warnings of winter road conditions flashed above major roadways on Sunday.

The New Jersey State Police also notified drivers to play it safe, especially at sunrise.

“Lightly-coated roads can be deceivingly slick. Go slow tomorrow morning,” said a State Police twitter post.

Newark and Jersey City also posted for fans and drivers to take it easy.
