Our area could see another two inches of snow between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning but once the accumulation clears the Freehold Barnes & Noble will be holding a special story time event. Starting at 11 a.m. the book What’s Your Favorite Animal by Eric Carle will be featured.
The National Weather Service is calling for a mostly cloudy day as the snow passes followed by sunshine and a high near 24 degrees. A windchill will make that temperature feel closer to zero during the day. When the sun goes down the temperature is expected to drop to around eight as a low on a mostly clear night.
