The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning as much as a foot of snow could fall in Monmouth County early Thursday morning, Feb. 9.
Coastal Monmouth County could see 6-8 inches while 8-12 inches could fall further inland.
A mix of rain, sleet and snow could begin falling between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. with the heaviest snow falling between 3 a.m. and noon.
The timing of the snow could drastically impact the the Thursday morning commute for drivers and close schools in the process.
The latest briefing from the National Weather Service states that there will be "significant impacts to travel especially for the Thursday morning commute due to heavy snow, gusty winds, reduced visibility, and snow packed roads."
The wet snow could also lead to power outages as it more easily sticks to trees and power lines.
Another briefing is expected to be issued on Thursday morning, so we'll update this story if any major changes are forecasted. We'll also post any school closures as soon as we know about them.
