Neither snow nor sleet nor rain was falling on Red Bank as of 6 a.m. Wednesday. But school closings, event postponements and a state of emergency declared by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy had the region braced for a storm named ‘Toby’ that could dump some 15 inches of heavy, soggy snow on the area throughout the day.
Slippery conditions were expected for the morning commute as our area gets up to three inches, according to the National Weather Service. Schools on the Green announcing two-hour delays as of 5:45 a.m. included Red Bank, Red Bank Regional and Red Bank Charter.

No, that wasn’t quite a full moon rising over White Street in Red Bank Wednesday night. But it will be full on Thursday, the first of two such events in March; the second, a so-called blue moon, will appear on March 31.

According to the National Weather Service, a flood watch is in effect for low-lying and coastal areas during the period, when several inches of rain are expected, along with wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour as part of a “major coastal storm.”
