First Snow, Now Bitter Cold: Alan’s Weather Blog
Well, our snow storm is over.
It’s bitterly cold now, and it’s going to stay that way for a while.
Snowfall amounts were incredible, but there was one exception. Along the south coast, from Atlantic City to Cape May, they had much less than the amounts I’m going to tell you because they were in what we call a ‘snow hole.’
They were not getting any snow of consequence until very late yesterday afternoon or early last evening. They only had 2-4 inches or a bit more along the south coast.
That’s nothing like what I’m about to tell you that happened elsewhere.
For example, Cinnaminson and Mount Holly had 13.5 and 13 inches. Pennsauken had 11.5. Gloucester County National Park had 13.5 inches. In Mercer County, East Windsor Township had a foot. Cheesequake in Middlesex County had 10 inches.
But, the winner was in Manalapan and Englishtown, which had 15.8 and 15.1 inches. Incredible.
Today, we’ll see returning sunshine, windy conditions, and temperatures not out of the bitterly cold teens.
There may be a few flurries, at some point, tomorrow. But, still very cold.
And more very cold weather will continue on Friday.
