The National Weather Service's latest forecast calls for more snow than originally forecasted and subzero wind chill temperatures.
A wind chill advisory has been issued for Monmouth County as wind chill temperatures as low as -16 degrees could hit the area on Monday, Feb. 16. A high wind warning is also in effect as there is a potential for damaging wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour on Saturday night, Feb. 14, and Sunday as a nor'easter develops rapidly off the New England Coast, according to the National Weather Service. Power outages and downed trees could occur as a result of the high winds.
Monmouth County is expected to receive between 3-4 inches of snow on Saturday night through Sunday morning. The strong winds combined with falling and/or accumulated snow will result in areas of blowing or drifting snow.
The National Weather Service is also forecasting a possible "significant wintry precipitation event" on Tuesday Feb. 17. through Feb. 18. However, the track of the storm is still uncertain as of 9 p.m. on Saturday.
