Another Round Of Very Dangerous Road Conditions Is Coming
As the snow is mostly tapering off throughout Ocean County (we're even seeing some breaks of sun here at the WOBM studios in Toms River), don't let the clearing skies fool you, we have a whole other round of dangerous conditions on the way.
WOBM Meteorologist Dan Zarrow points out that tonight's temperatures will fall into the teens.
Not only was the snow that fell wet and heavy, but in most of the area it was either preceded by, or followed by rain, sleet, or all of the above.
So wet roadways, especially untreated secondary roads, could become giant ice rinks once the temperatures begin to plummet tonight.
Major roads like the Garden State Parkway have been extensively pre-treated before the storm began, plus salting and sanding during the snowfall. But that doesn't mean that there won't be icy spots even on the most traveled roads.
So be careful out there tonight! Take it slow, watch for icy patches, and keep our winter driving tips in mind as you head out today and tonight!
