Wayne Police Capt. Mark McGrath is advising residents to stay off the roads Wednesday night as a wintry mix has started to impact the area.
"The roads are very slippery now. The snow started sticking immediately," he said.
McGrath said several accidents have already been reported and that "if people can avoid travel, they should."
Up to 2 inches of snow is expected in Wayne before rain begins to fall.
"The main roads are where we have the most accidents because that's where the most people are driving," McGrath said.
Roads crews from the local, county and state departments are already out working on clearing roads and ensuring safety.
