Wednesday's storm caused hazardous driving conditions in North Jersey Wednesday afternoon, resulting in several accidents and backed up traffic.
Sparta Police Sgt. John-Paul Beebe said there were over a dozen accidents Wednesday afternoon in the township since the snow began to fall around 2 p.m.
"The roads are terrible, there's a lot of traffic out there, there's accidents all over the township," he said.
All of the accidents were minor, he said, which all involved drivers sliding off the roads and getting stuck in the snow. Beebe said there were no reported injuries in any of the accidents.
Beebe advises motorists to stay off the roads and wait until Thursday morning when the roads are clear.
"If you don't need to be on the road, don't be on the road," he said. "There's no reason to be on the road right now. Stay off the roads because you're going to get disabled."
Beebe said both township and state plows have been out all afternoon and will continue through the storm.
The storm, which progressed from Southern Pennsylvania to New Jersey, is expected to last until Thursday morning with wind gusts up to 45 miles per hour.
The storm may also bring up to a quarter-inch of ice, according to National Weather Service meteorologist David Stark.
Sussex County is likely to receive more snow accumulation than rain or ice, Stark said.
