MORE WHITE ON GREEN?

The Greater Red Bank Green could be in for a bit more snow accumulation overnight into Monday morning. There appears to be agreement among the National Weather Service, Weather Underground and the Weather Channel that we’ll see less than an inch of snow overnight and again Monday, but that ice as a result of intermittent rain could make the morning commute hazardous.

ON THE GREEN: BRACING FOR A BLIZZARD

The National Weather Service expects light snow Monday morning, but has a blizzard warning in effect from noon Monday through 6 p.m. Tuesday, with whiteout conditions and accumulations expected to total 18 to 28 inches, with higher drifts as a result of strong winds.

As of 6 p.m. Sunday, Red Bank had cancelled trash and recycling pickups scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, and was reminding residents to get their vehicles off the street once snow starts falling. Details here.
