As it currently stands, the NWS forecast for Ocean County calls for snow likely, mainly after 1 a.m. overnight between Wednesday and Thursday. The low will be around 26, and new snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches is possible.

Snow is also likely Thursday, mainly before 1 p.m. No accumulation numbers are being forecast. It will otherwise be cloudy, with a high near 31. Similarly, there is a 60 percent chance of snow Thursday night and Friday morning, however no accumulation predictions have been made.
