This week's snow forecast from National Weather Service, a local meteorologist and the Magic Eight Ball, all say yes.
The sky is a bright blue without a cloud in sight. We can guess there will be no snow in Toms River today, but how is the rest of the week looking? In a particularly un-snowy winter, will this week be the one? Will we finally be able to make a snow ball...or even...a snow man? We asked the National Weather Service, Toms River resident and meteorologist Scott Derek, and the Magic Eight Ball. For both the NWS and Scott, some signs point to a Wednesday snow, if at all. The verdict from NWS is "chance of rain/snow." That sounds wet, and not very pretty. Guess my plans for Frosty the Snowman will have to wait. What does Magic Eight Ball say? The prediction for snow this week is: "Absolutely!" That sounds pretty certain, what do you think? Take …

Magic Eight Ball says "No way!"
It's been a winter marked by negligible snowfall so far. But there's still plenty of winter left, even though some of these days it feels as though spring has arrived in Toms River. So what's the forecast for this week? Will we see the first green sprigs of daffodils break through the not-so-frozen ground or will that same ground be covered with snow? Is it going to snow this week in Toms River? We asked the National Weather Service, the Farmer's Almanac, The Weather Channel, and the Magic Eight Ball. The forecast: no snow. Magic Eight Ball was pretty sure this week. "No way!" it answered, when we asked if snow was going to fall. National Weather Service also said no way. Though for a portion of the overnight a hazardous weather outlook …

This week will bring plenty of spring sunshine with the occasional shower and pleasant temperatures
This week will bring weather that is typical for early spring with temperatures averaging in the low 60s and occasional showers. The workweek will begin with partly sunny skies and pleasant temperatures trying to get to the mid-60s. A chance for light rain showers looms on Tuesday, but the sky will be full of sunshine otherwise during mid-week. Temperatures will rise to the upper-60s by Thursday with the next chance of light precipitation coming on Friday. Saturday appears to be the day of the week with the most cloudy skies and chance of showers. There is no better way to end the week with beautifully sunny skies on Sunday with temperatures nearing 70 degrees.

After being teased with near 70 degree temperatures last week, we will get another quick reminder that winter is not over yet. This is what we can expect throughout the remainder of this winter season as warm weather teases are followed quick cold blasts with minor snow accumulations. Monday will start off with light rain in the morning. Some mixed precipitation may occur during the overnight hours but this should not be a big disruption for the morning commute. Tuesday morning may be a bit more dicey. Our area may face accumulations of 1-to-3 inches of snow Monday night through Tuesday morning. I am leaning more toward 1 inch of snow unless the precipitation from this storm is able to make its way further north. This will be more of a …

National Weather Service predicts sleet will give way to snow into evening.
There’s snow on the ground in parts of Toms River. And, it’s not the old stuff, but the first sign of flakes early this morning, with the National Weather Service predicting as much as 9 inches tonight. The NWS issued a winter storm warning through 4 a.m. Thursday for central and southeast New Jersey, warning that Wednesday’s morning commute would see slick conditions and predicting the drive home would be even more dangerous. About an inch has already fallen on parts of Toms River and wet snow is coming down quick in Georgetown. Stay tuned to Toms River Patch in the event closures or cancellations are announced. NJ Transit began to cross-honor tickets between its buses, trains and light rail lines for the duration of the storm. A Toms …
