The Jersey Shore could see its first measurable snowfall Tuesday, though it will likely be minimal, according to forecasters. Temperatures will begin to dip during the day on Monday to about freezing before 5 p.m. as clouds move in.

After an overnight low of 22 degrees, the National Weather Service is predicting 1-2 inches of snow could fall between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Tuesday. Between the afternoon hours and 8 p.m., there is a slight chance of some additional snowfall, the forecast said. The high in Brick will be 32 degrees.

After the snow threat comes the larger weather story of the week: frigid temperatures that will, no doubt, spur memories of last winter. The low overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday will be 20 degrees, the weather service is predicting, with a high of 30 on Wednesday. Then, Wednesday night, the low will dip to just 7 degrees with a high of only 22 degrees on Thursday. Temperatures will be in the high teens Thursday night with a high of 32 on Friday.
