Morning Update – Jersey Shore Preps For Snow
The Jersey Shore is preparing for some accumulating snow throughout a Thursday workday that will affect both Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
It's hard to believe that we're talking about a snow event in the same forecast that features a day with a high temperature of 60, but that's exactly what meteorologist Dan Zarrow thinks will happen.
Here's how it plays out. Today (Wednesday) will feature breaks of sunshine and a high around 60 degrees. If you were waiting to see if we would break a record today, we probably will miss it by three or four degrees.
Then, in the late afternoon, temperatures will drop quickly and we'll see a mix of snow and rain that will chance to all snow by daybreak tomorrow. That snow will be heavy at times and leave us with 4 to 6 inches of accumulation.
Talk about crazy weather. We go from near record high temperatures to a Winter Storm Warning in a 7 or 8 hour span. That's Mother Nature's clever little way of reminding us that February has just begun.
