    It may not be classic bread and milk weather, but portions of New Jersey will experience wintry conditions tonight and Sunday as two storms move through, while Saturday remains mostly dry.

    Tonight’s system will deliver rain to most, with a mixed bag of sleet, freezing rain, and snow in Sussex County, according to a Winter Weather Advisory issued by the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ. 

    The advisory, in effect from 7 p.m. through 7 a.m. Saturday, notes that up to an inch of snow and sleet and less than a tenth of an inch of ice are expected. 

    “Sleet should start this evening and become more of a predominate precipitation type as the evening progresses. Some freezing rain is possible later this evening and precipitation may end as snow,” the advisory states.

    After a reprieve Saturday, Sunday’s storm is expected to deliver wintry weather for most areas.

    It is possible that everyone will experience a wintry mix of snow and sleet Sunday into Sunday night, with a changover to rain Sunday night into Monday morning for southern areas, according to a National Weather Service Hazardous Weather Outlook. 

    But areas generally around the I-78 corridor to the north are likely to experience a wintry mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain occurring longer, potentially not seeing a changeover until later Monday, forecasters say.
