Strong Winds and Snow Predicted Thru Saturday

AccuWeather is calling for Matawan and vicinity to have 8.3 inches of snow and wind gusts up to 54 MPH (sustained winds up to 23 MPH) in what is being described as a Nor'Easter that will torment us over the next few days. The brunt of the storm is expected today (Thursday), with 3-6 inches of snowfall late in the day, adding to amounts that already fell. Strong winds can knock down trees and power lines, and waves can be expected to pound the ocean coastline if not the bayshore. The worst of the storm is expected to paralyze travel in northeastern PA, northwestern NJ, and south-central NY.

Check out the regional weather radar out of Philadelphia to see color-coded precipitation rates from Maryland to central New York. At 1:30 am the radar is showing nothing over our area but a large mass of green (5-15) and dark green (20-30) just off the coast, from the north about Toms River, NJ and south to Ocean City, MD.

 The latest AccuWeather video forecast available at 1:30 am was posted at 10:35 pm, but clicking on this link should take you indirectly to more current reports under Today's Featured Videos. (Sorry but these videos come with a brief video ad.)
