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.
A winter weather advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.
While no icing, coastal flooding or damaging winds are expected during the storm, it will turn much colder Saturday night when any remaining snow or water on untreated roads, driveways,and sidewalks will likely refreeze, according the weather service’s latest briefing at 7 p.m. on December 8, which can be obtained by clicking here.
