Editor's Note: Here's the latest weather outlook, updated at 7 p.m. on December 8.

MOUNT HOLLY, NJ — Up to 4 inches of snow are predicted for Monmouth County, starting anytime after 1 a.m. and lasting through tomorrow, according to a winter weather advisory issued by the National Weather Service.

The weather service is calling it “mainly a snow event” for December 9, mixing with rain along the coast and producing a slushy accumulation on untreated surfaces and grassy areas. The highest accumulations are expected south of Route 195 and east of the I-95 corridor — placing Belmar and Lake Como in the area to be most affected by the storm.
