Highway superintendents say they will not be sanding and salting yet this morning, adding they did that last night.
Now, they are just plowing since snow will be coming down at a steady pace through the morning rush.
News 12 meteorologists say the heaviest snow will fall from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., with snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour.
Drivers are urged to take it slow, and stay off the roads if possible.
