The powerful storm that was expected to hit our area starting tomorrow looks to have weakened and the National Weather Service (NWS) is predicting much less snowfall to cover our area.
According to the most recent predictions from the NWS the storm is expected to arrive Friday afternoon and go through Friday night but there should only be a maximum of four inches falling on the ground. Many areas, including Long Branch and Eatontown, may see only an inch of snow or less depending on where they are in the path of the storm.
The snowfall may not be as bad as what was originally predicted but the temperatures over the next few days will remain at or below the freezing mark. Starting tomorrow the high is expected to be around 25 before dropping down near 19 degrees tomorrow night.
Saturday's high temperature is predicted to be near 29 degrees before hitting a low near 15 on Saturday night. Temperatures will begin to rise on Sunday with a high of 34 and a low of 22 before hitting highs near 40 to start next week.
