Ok, it's February and if you are a snow lover here in New Jersey you are holding onto the hope that maybe this is the month to see a visit from Jack Frost and with that, some of the "white stuff" to fall for winter weather lovers. So far the winter of 2024 has been a snow disappointment.

If there is a month where we could see snow in the Garden State, this is the month for it to happen. In a recent Patch article, according to the National Weather Service Mount Holly Station, "February is the most likely month for our region to get a major snowstorm, so stay tuned".

To be honest though, personally, I am not holding a ton of hope for snow this month because forecasters are saying we will have warmer weather for the first two weeks of February and this is a short month so that window of snow is very tight. Plus as I have talked about before, I am not a fan these days of digging and scraping out of snow or driving in it. So if we get a light snow this month, one time, I'd be a happy camper. I do have a solution!

If you are waiting for snow, wait no more, just head to see our friends in Buffalo, New York. They usually have enough snow for everyone. According to the Post-Journal, "The highest snowfall year recorded in the Queen City was the winter of 1976-77. That year Buffalo received 199.4 inches of snow while Mayville received 290 inches. That season is significant because that was the year of the famed “Blizzard of 1977.”

Only time will tell and we will see if February brings any snow, but looking at the forecast the first week of the month temps are above the freezing mark.
