    High pressure is moving out this morning as a warm front pushes northerly, allowing moisture to stream into the area, forecasters say. 

    Radar at 8:20 a.m. shows light snow showers moving through the Jersey Shore, and the National Weather Service expects around one to two inches of snow until warmer air moves in from the south and east this afternoon.

    That’s when the forecasters expect a changeover from snow to sleet and then eventually plain rain this evening.

    Especially in northern Shore areas, there is a chance of freezing rain mixing in during the late afternoon, since the ground surface will remain below freezing for up to a few hours after the air temperature climbs above freezing. 

    Up to a tenth of ice is possible in Monmouth County, according to the latest National Weather Service forecast map. Brief icing is also possible elsewhere. 

    Some spots will be icy, so exercise caution on roadways and walkways.
