    Trouble In The Tropics, How Concerned Should You Be?

    Inevitably lots of hype surrounds this time of the year due to being in the heart, or peak, of Hurricane Season. My forecast, along with probably everybody else's, outlined an above average season in terms of tropical development and activity. Typically speaking August 15th through September 15th marks the period of time where tropical storm and hurricane frequency is at the max due to the abundance of very warm water available.  While it did not impact us directly, as thou...

  • Eyes Begin to Focus on Tropics: Potential For "Gert"?

    Yes... there is a tropical feature that could very well become "Gert" out in the heart of the Atlantic and yes... it will probably become well organized as some point over the course of the next 4-5 days. But no, I don't expect any direct impact for us here in South Jersey. It's still worth watching very closely because things can change in relation to troughs and ridges that can pull it closer to the mainland but I think likelihood of that happening is slim. Why? Look at t...

    Isn't it amazing to see just how fast time flies? I mean come on! It feels like just yesterday we were celebrating Memorial Day, now we are going back to school shopping. Unreal! Now, I won't be a complete Debbie downer because on the bright side at least we have one full month left of Summer!  Alright, let's get down to brass tacks. Obviously you want to know what we can expect as we go into the new month, right? I'm gonna break it down for you. First, let's take a look back at...

  • Mid-Summer 'Nor'Easter' to Bring Heavy Rain to South Jersey

    Friday, July 28 2017 10:25 AM EDT2017-07-28 14:25:35 GMT

    Coastal Storm Update: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Yesterday I compared what's coming our way to forecasting a Winter storm... why? Unanswered questions / twists and turns to the very end. I explained on air that while some of the models are going crazy with 5"+ forecasts, I think we will be in the 2-4" range. Some outlets are showing maps 8" + for some areas, much like with a Winter storm, it is being blown out of proportion. I've always been one to just talk facts, ...
