MERCERVILLE, New Jersey (WPVI) -- Main roads and highways in Mercer County, New Jersey were mainly wet late Tuesday morning, but some snow could still be seen on neighborhood streets.

"I like it. Second snow this year," said Max Grieco, of Sicklerville. "After not having any snow last year it's a little encouraging to see it around."
