BELMAR/LAKE COMO, NJ — How much snow will fall, if any, along the coast in Monmouth County is a question the National Weather Services is still asking.

With precipitation expected to begin late this afternoon, the latest forecast shows uncertainty on whether it will be in the form of snow, rain or a mixture of both, depending on surface temperatures.  

However, a “burst of snow” this evening could quickly coat surfaces with wet snow, the service predicts.
