Following a bout of wind-driven snow overnight, forecasters say skies will gradually clear during the day Sunday. The wind will continue to gust, however, and the temperatures will be frigid.
Snow showers lingering from Saturday night should end by 9 a.m. Sunday morning in Ocean County, according to the National Weather Service, at which point skies will begin to gradually clear. The remainder of Sunday should be partly sunny, the forecast said, with a high of 17 degrees. The winds will continue, sustained between 30 and 40 m.p.h. with occasional gusts to 60 m.p.h. A high wind warning is in effect until 2 p.m. Sunday and a wind chill warning is in effect until 11 a.m. Monday.
The overnight low between Sunday and Monday will be three degrees, the forecast said. On the bright side, Monday will be a sunny day despite the forecast high of just 19 degrees. Winds of 16 to 24 m.p.h. will remain on Monday.
The next chance of snow will come Tuesday evening into Wednesday, though forecasters were not detailing exactly how strong or weak that system might be.
