The snow may not accumulate enough to require shoveling but it does require you to completely clear your windshields before heading out. Slow down, plan extra travel time and drive for the conditions. ❄️ #ArlWx pic.twitter.com/kpVBQzwxQK

Sleet is continuing to fall in North Arlington. We’ve been hearing fewer reports of problems on the roads over the past 30 minutes or so, but motorists should continue driving cautiously.
