When Kevin Valerio announced the annual re-opening of his Strollo’s Lighthouse Italian Ice business in Red Bank last week, daytime temperatures were peaking around 70 degrees. So he didn’t expect the stand, at Rector Place and North Bridge Avenue, to be encrusted in American ice and snow that he and his employees would have to hack away at with less than 24 hours to go.
With temperatures hovering just below 30 degrees, roads and sidewalks were expected to be icy Monday morning. The day’s forecast called for abundant sunshine, but no great rise in temperature through Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. (Photos by John T. Ward. Click to enlarge)
After a two-day dalliance with winter, seen Wednesday in the form of an icy puddle on Bridge Avenue in Red Bank, the Greater Green returns to relatively warmer weather in the days ahead, according to the National Weather Service.
Over the next five days, nighttime temperatures are expected to be well above freezing, with daytime temps climbing daily until through Monday, according to the NWS forecast.

The first full day of spring 2015 began Saturday with roads clear and trees, houses and cars adorned with the prettiest snow that winter has to offer, as seen in these two photos from the corner of East Bergen Place and South Street in Red Bank. A parting gift?

After weeks of bitter cold and snow, a lone seagull occupied the narrowing ice of the Navesink River off Red Bank Sunday afternoon, above. By Monday evening, after a day of temperatures in the high 40s, the river ice had retreated, as seen from the Molly Pitcher Hotel Marina, at right.

With the highly variable weather seen on the Greater Red Bank Green in recent days – bitter cold, snow, rain and a rapid snowmelt with temperatures in the mid-40s – the owner of the kayak seen on Broad Street in Red Bank Saturday might be forgiven for not knowing what’s next.
Well, what’s next is a forecast better for iceboating than kayaking, as peak daytime temperatures remain below 30 degrees for the next few days, with the exception of Wednesday, when they’ll top off at about 36 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. Nighttime temps aided by wind-chills, will again be frigid. (Photo by Trish Russoniello. Click to enlarge)
