    Just some light flurries remain early this evening after some portions of the Jersey Shore are digging out.

    Numerous roads remain dangerous as of 7:30 p.m., according to Jersey Shore Hurricane News (JSHN) contributors (read the reports by clicking here). Bitter cold will follow overnight, with temperatures dropping to the teens, forecasters say. With the wind, it will feel even colder.

    Estell Manor in Atlantic County takes the prize for the most snowfall (8.7″) in the coastal counties, followed closely by 8.5″ in Barnegat in Ocean County and 8″ in Lincroft in Monmouth County, according to spotter reports submitted to the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly. 

    JSHN received a report of around 8″ in Pine Beach, Ocean County shortly before 5 p.m. and another reporting 8″ in Brick, Ocean County shortly before 8 p.m. The Harvey Cedars Police Department reported slightly over 8″ in the Long Beach Island community.
