OCEAN COUNTY – If you were dreaming of a white Christmas in 2021, you were left disappointed as temperatures were very mild on December 25th. However, how about a New Year’s snow storm? Weather forecasters say it’s possible as they watch a storm system moving rapidly to our area that could be here Sunday night, causing a messy Monday morning commute.
According to the National Weather Service, a winter storm watch was issued Sunday morning for far southern New Jersey and Delaware. Early estimates say we may receive anywhere from 2 to 4 inches in Ocean County and maybe 6-8 inches south of Atlantic City. Usually, the southern part of the state doesn’t experience major snow events but northern Jersey does. This time, the accumulation estimates are higher down south and are more coating to an inch in the northern counties of Monmouth, Middlesex and Mercer.
Officials around various Ocean County towns are ready with the plows if needed and like everything else with the weather we may get no snow at all, a little bit or a blizzard. Well, in this case, a blizzard isn’t in the forecast.
Stay tuned to your local radio and TV stations for more information.
Enjoy the mild weather today before temps plummet later this afternoon.
