  JERSEY SHORE – More snow is headed towards the shore within the next 24 hours with as much as 6 inches of snow in the area and throughout the state.

  This just follows the massive snow storm the state encountered on Monday, where parts of South Jersey had anywhere between 8 to 13 inches of snow.

  The National Weather Service said that snow will likely fall between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. Friday morning with snowfall rates of 2 inches per hour.

  Ocean and Monmouth Counties are expected to see between 4 to 4.5 inches of snowfall, with neighboring counties expecting closer to 5 inches of snow.


  In addition, the National Weather Service said the state could experience wind gusts of up to 35 mph up until late Friday morning. High winds can blow a majority of the snow and contribute to hazardous road conditions.
