TRENTON, N.J. — Motorists and pedestrians are facing icy conditions across New Jersey after freezing rain glazed motor vehicles, roads and sidewalks.

Many schools across the state have delayed opening on Tuesday.

Motorists are asked to use caution, especially when approaching bridges, because temperatures remain below freezing and driving conditions could be slick.

Allow extra time to clear ice from windshields.

Pedestrians also should use caution because sidewalks could be icy.

Temperatures are expected to rise above freezing throughout the day and conditions are expected to improve.
