Wxsim has about 0.15" of w.e. in NW Chesco with a mix of IP/ZR till temps get above freezing by about 7am- temps are running about 5 degrees lower than Wxsim forecast at 1030am - it is too high with it's forecast high of 39 for today - NWS has only 34 here. No winter wx advisory here but not too far away in Berks County just 6 miles NW of here....could be some slick spots in the AM.

We had a mix of freezing rain, ice pellets and sleet over night. Perhaps a trace of ice at my house, but more in the hillier sections. A very, very light dusting in some areas

Flemington area of Hunterdon County NJ
