The first snowfall of the season is causing some slowing of traffic as winter makes an early arrival in New Jersey with the promise of unseasonably cold weather to follow.

A cold front moved through the state overnight turning showers turned into a light snow from north to south as the morning commute got underway.

The snow is not sticking to road surfaces but as drivers return to the roads following  the long Veteran’s Day weekend and an extended time off last week for some teachers and students due to the NJEA teachers convention last week there are a number of accidents and slow downs on the slick roads.

An inch of snow may accumulate on grassy surfaces in north Jersey. Light snow is falling across the northeast from New England to the Poconos through Philadelphia and into south Jersey.

No warnings or watches were issued by the National Weather Service relating to the snow but a Freeze Warning is in effect for parts of Union County as temperatures fall into the mid-20s tonight that will kill sensitive vegetation and end the growing season.

Route 27 in Edison was closed at Stony Road due to an accident that brought down a utility pole while an early accident on Interstate 78 at exit 18 caused a multi-mile delay.Routes 1/9 were closed for a time southbound at the Pulaski Skyway.

The snow should end by afternoon and  temperatures that started in the 50s will drop to the 30s. Wednesday will be a sunny day but cold with temperatures hovering 40. A warm-up back into the 50s will start on Thursday.
