A winter storm brought several inches of snow to most of North Jersey on Saturday.

The weather system, referred to as Winter Storm Freyr by The Weather Channel, was expected to drop 2 to 5 inches throughout the region. Snow began falling in most areas by late morning and started to taper off late Saturday night.

The storm reduced visibility in some areas and caused treacherous travelling conditions.

Skies are expected to clear on Sunday with temperatures in the low 30s.

Initially forecasters were unsure if Freyr would track into Northern New Jersey or veer out toward the coast but their prediction was confirmed on Friday.

According to a report on NJ.com, state Department of Transportation crews early Saturday morning pre-treated highways with salt, to prevent snow from sticking and making it easier to plow off once it gets deep enough. 

To give customers additional travel options during Freyr's winter storm, NJ Transit offered a full system wide cross-honoring for all rail, bus and light rail lines on Saturday.

While NJ Transit is currently planning to operate a regular weekend rail and bus schedule, customers may experience delays or detours.
