The area is now forecasted to have about one inch of snow on the ground.
Wind is responsible for some power outages in Manalapan, but it's also responsible for pushing an impending nor'easter to sea. On Tuesday, Manalapan was forecasted to receive between 3 and 5 inches of snow. But the area woke up to green grass and black pavement. Now, snow is forecasted to fall between midnight and 2 a.m. on Friday morning. However, meteorologists say temperatures won't drop enough to have any significant accumulation on the ground. The original 3 to 5 inch accumulation has dropped to between one and 3 inches, resulting in possible slippery conditions for the morning commute. Motorists are still cautioned to use extra time on Friday morning for the commute.
