Tuesday, February 3, 2015.   Re-post.


Paul, Good morning.

I shoot the same things, over and over, but they always look a little different.

Snow on the beach….we got another dusting yesterday afternoon/evening.

Made for a pretty dawn this morning… Eleven degrees. Froze the locks and windows on my car!

Catch some sun for me ….put it in a bottle and throw it in the Ocean…maybe it will come my way.

Weather  March 10, 2017:


Rick Cuttrell weather report highlights   8:40 am:

Snow has begun over northern NJ and is spreading into the NYC area at this hour. The snow will be a bit delayed in the Neptune area but will arrive between 8am and 9am after a brief period of rain. The storm has slowed a bit in its forward progress. Snow will taper off from west to east, continuing across coastal sections until around 2pm. t will allow our area to be under the more enhanced precipitation rates as the storm deepens rapidly in the nearby coastal waters.

Although the snow from the storm will taper down and end in the early to mid afternoon hours, some localized intense snow squalls will develop in late afternoon and early evening. In areas that experience these bands, there will be brief intense snow rates with limited visibility and a quick accumulation of snow.

Most likely snow accumulations are as follows (keep in mind that snow amounts will be less on road surfaces):
Central NJ including Neptune/Monmouth/northern Ocean – 2 to 4 inches

The overall hemispheric pattern is very conductive to a major winter storm next Tuesday. Computer guidance continues to consistently display a powerful east coast storm will heavy snow and strong winds. Details will be determined in the coming days but this has the potential to be a high impact weather event.

Jean heads downtown seeking blizzard conditions, but Mother Nature produces about 3 inches.

She says,  “Wayne, Ocean Grove resident, was shoveling his sidewalk. He didn’t seem too happy.”

I said, “Well you can’t fool Mother Nature”….

He quickly replied ‘That’s a mother you don’t want !”

Moe Demby, Blogfinger staff, was also out taking photos. He found a flamboyant flamingo who should have flown south a fortnight ago.

Moe also said that a frog drove into town during the storm. The visiting amphibian parked on the wrong side of the street, so the police toad him away.  (Actually Moe reported that the NTPD was indeed towing some cars.)  Did anyone get fined for failing to shovel?

Also, Jean reported that businesses were closed today; except Nagles opened and fed some hungry tourists.

Any great snow photos?  Please email them to BF.

UPDATE SATURDAY, FEB. 14 AT 5:30 PM:  WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY: Emergency parking rules in affect. There will be snow, strong winds with gusts over 60 mph, and very low temperatures.  Do not park on north or west sides if there are no posted signs to follow. Use off street parking when possible.  Use “extreme caution” when going outside since the high winds and wind chills  can be dangerous .

Accu Weather  Feb 14, 2015

A strong low will move over our area early this evening and trigger an offshore coastal storm tonight.

This will be the start of a very cold and stormy 7 to 10 day period that could challenge some records for duration of cold/snow.

As the storm approaches the coast, heavy snow will break out from west to east across NJ between 6pm and 9pm.  There will likely be a lull in the snowfall after that before another period of snow moves in between midnight and 6am.

Snowfall accumulations by Sunday morning will be in the range of 2 to 4 inches, but amounts could be a couple of inches higher.

The snow ends around sunrise tomorrow and then the wind takes center stage.  North winds switching to northwest will increase overnight.  By late tonight and Sunday, northwest winds will be sustained in the 25 mph to 35 mph range with gusts to 60 mph.  The Weather Service has issued a high wind warning for the entire area.

Winds of this magnitude bring the threat of downed tree limbs and power outages.  Along with the wind, brutally cold weather will also rule the day on Sunday with temperatures in the teens, which has prompted the issuance of a wind chill advisory.  Add in the blowing snow from what falls tonight and you get the trifecta of blowing snow, cold, and wind making for a very harsh winter day on Sunday.

Winds will subside Sunday night, but low temps will be near zero by Monday morning.  Northern and central NJ will likely go below zero.  This will likely be the coldest morning since January, 1994.

This is only the start of what could be a punishing winter weather week.  A storm system will be moving through the deep south early next week and has the potential to move up the coast and deliver snow Tuesday night and Wednesday.  The air mass that follows this storm will be colder than what we experience tomorrow/Monday with the threat of below zero readings both Wednesday night and Thursday night.  Another storm threat follows next weekend and below normal temperatures look to continue through the remainder of February.

I will be providing updates on a regular basis.
