RED BANK: SNOWSTORM WINDS DOWN

Two pedestrians navigated the slippery, unplowed snow on Monmouth Street near the Red Bank train station early Tuesday following a storm that dropped about eight inches Sunday and Monday.

At around 6 a.m., borough streets were a slushy mess as light rain alternated with more snow. Roads maintained by Monmouth County were clear at that  hour.

With another inch or two of snow possible, and wind gusts of up to 35 miles per hour expected, a National Weather Service winter storm warning remained in effect Tuesday.

Public schools in Red Bank, Fair Haven and Little Silver, including Red Bank Regional High, were on all-remote schedules Tuesday. Red Bank Catholic called off classes for a snow day.

After a one-day shutdown Monday, New Jersey Transit said it would resume regular schedules of trains and buses Tuesday “with delayed starts as weather conditions permit.”

Local trash collection remains suspended in Red Bank, and Fair Haven has rescheduled its trash and bulk-waste pickups.
