The No Snow February 2020 At The Jersey Shore?
Is it possible that the Jersey Shore could have gone through an entire February without any accumulating snow?
A check of the Office of the New Jersey State Climatologist shows no measured snow so far in the month of February for either Monmouth or Ocean County. Dan Zarrow's forecast through the last handful of days left in the month features only flurries in our area (on Saturday).
We all know that there is still plenty of winter left this season, and I need to mention that because the superstition in me is screaming to do so. But as far as February goes, we're mere hours from closing the book on it.
So. it looks like February at the Jersey Shore will leave commuters relieved and kids looking forward to making a snowman or some snowballs, or getting some snow days, a little frustrated.
So, what about March? Here's what our Chief Meteorologist Dan Zarrow has to say about that...
At the moment, long-range models do not show any substantial winter storms heading toward New Jersey through about March 13. (Of course, keep in mind, forecast accuracy and skill goes way down after about 5 days.) Statistics show that major winter storms are very rare beyond the first day of Spring, which is March 19 this year. So the window for significant snow is rapidly closing. I'm not quite ready to call it "The Winter That Wasn't" - but it's getting pretty close!
