Snow On the Way, Again
The area could receive 2-4 inches
The shore area will get hit with a fast-moving storm Thursday night into Friday that may drop 2 to 4 inches of snow across the state, according to forecasters.
Previous predictions called for light snow followed by rain along the coast, but meteorologist Jim Poirier of the National Weather Service's Mount Holly station said temperatures in the 20s will mean "it's all snow."
Flakes will start falling Thursday around midnight, Poirier said, and will end sometime Friday morning, with some snow showers possible Friday afternoon.
Forecasters say a high pressure system will then usher in the coldest weather of the season so far, with temperatures in the low teens or lower in the shore area.
Brick officials announced Thursday morning that crews had already begun treating township roadways in an effort to mitigate the potential for icy roads should weekend temperatures fall well below freezing. According to Brick's policy on snow removal, plows will clear roads if at least 4 inches of snow accumulates.
