Plow crews across the region worked through the day to continue to clear streets. Many secondary roads still needed to be cleared today. Work will continue tonight and Monday. Princeton received about 24 inches of snow, but who’s counting?

Police have reported numerous accidents. Roads are still slippery, and trucks and cars are still getting stuck in the snow.

Roads are refreezing as temperatures drop tonight. Driving conditions will be dangerous tonight because of this. Watch out for black ice if you must drive. This will also make the Monday morning commute difficult. Leave extra time for your commute.

Watch out for snow and ice sliding off rooftops as you walk around downtown areas. First responders and public works crews had to remove snow from rooftops on Nassau Street today to protect pedestrians.
