    A period of light snow is likely to begin overnight and continue through early daylight hours tomorrow. 

    The National Weather Service says a widespread one to three inches of snow is likely at the Jersey Shore. A “South Jersey Special” is on tap as the highest accumulations in New Jersey are likely in southern Shore areas. 

    A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for Ocean to Cape May counties. The National Weather Service says Monmouth County is likely to see an inch or less of snow. 

    The forecast calls for light snow to overspread the area after midnight and continue through the mid-morning hours. It could cause some slippery travel during the morning commute. 

    Skies might then clear out from west to east by the afternoon as a northwest wind develops, gusting between 20 and 25 miles per hour.
