RED BANK: ‘FLASH FREEZE’ COMING?

snow-forecast-011719-500x396-9498598Whether the Greater Red Bank Green gets any significant snowfall over the coming weekend, it’s part of a region that may be in for a “flash freeze” Sunday.

From an NJ.com report, posted Wednesday evening:

Regardless of what type of precipitation falls from the sky on Saturday night and Sunday, forecasters say the Garden State could face a dangerous ice storm as a blast of frigid Arctic air sweeps down from Canada, causing wet surfaces to rapidly freeze Sunday night.

The quick freezing, known as a flash freeze, is likely to occur because air temperatures are expected to drop as much as 20 to 30 degrees in a matter of hours, forecasters say.

Temperatures in the Red Bank area are expected to plummet from about 41 degrees to 11 by the end of the day Sunday, making for a frigid Martin Luther King Jr. holiday the next day, according to the National Weather Service.

But before we get to that: what’s the near-term outlook? Check it out below.
