The New Jersey Department of Transportation already has crews out preparing the roads and will continue to do so.
NJDOT Commissioner Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti says crews are filling up at their fueling locations, topping off salt and brine solutions.
She adds they have plenty of material on hand and enough staffing to handle whatever comes this way.

PennDOT has seen some COVID-19 related staffing shortages but says they are prepared for the next few days.
Spokesperson Brad Rudolph says when PennDOT has a staffing shortage, they bring on extra contractors and other districts' teams to supplement.
Rudolph says they have been able to get a jump start on preparations, and that crews started pretreating roads Wednesday.
That will continue Thursday, and early Friday -- some anti-icing and brine will be applied.
All agencies will be closely monitoring the forecast and updating plans as it gets closer.
According to AccuWeather, the storm begins Friday evening and ends early Saturday afternoon.
