The National Weather Service reported 26 mph winds with gusts of 41 mph overnight in the Brick and Point Pleasant area, whipping around unsecured property and creating a wind chill of below freezing temperatures.

At one point the temperature with wind chill was -8 degrees in Ocean County, according to the NWS, and was forecast at -12 at daybreak.

The impending inclement weather sent school districts last night to preemptively call for a delayed opening this morning. Brick Township Schools, St. Dominic's in Brick and St. Peter's in Point Pleasant Beach each called for a 90-minute delay.

No major power outages had been reported as winds reached 38 mph gusts after midnight, according to Jersey Central Power & Light. The current power outage map is here.

Road reports include lane closures for scheduled construction through 6 a.m. on the Garden State Parkway in Wall for the shoulder widening project. Current road conditions can be found here.
