How did you do with the big storm? Most of us stayed in all weekend if we could. There are plenty of delays and closings today as well. Take comfort that we will be in the 50's next week so we can watch it all melt...until then, if you are curious like me, we have the official snow totals for Ocean County from The National Weather Service.
We just got new information about tonight's weather from The National Weather Service and I wanted to pass this along. They have issued a tornado watch for a bunch of New Jersey counties for this afternoon into tonight. Scroll down for all the details. Thanks Ida.
The big lesson that I learned during my winter trip to Iceland is that dry feet make all the difference. I'm so grateful I invested in a pair of good boots so I didn't have that double whammy of cold wet feet while trekking through snow and slush.
And as shown in the infographic, covering up as much of the flesh as possible will help keep you warm on a day like today. Those face masks or balaclavas as they're called may not be pretty but they work wonders!
I also find those little warming packets for your hands and feet are helpful.
Most of us will remember the large fire that burned over 300 acres in Beachwood two years ago. Today, the National Weather Service is warning that conditions could lead to similar dangerous situations in our area.
The good news is that now it's looking like Hurricane Joaquin will likely miss us with a sharp turn in the coming days. But, living in Ocean County, we all know that it doesn't mean we get a full pass on dangerous conditions.
There is one thing that we can absolutely tell you for sure - it is going to rain over the next few days. Anything that you're hearing outside of that, mostly thanks to social media, is anything from best guess forecasts to pure speculation.
The National Weather Service has been assigning names to major hurricanes for over 60 years. On the heels of this week's snow, that some referred to as "Juno", you might think that they've started to apply the same practice to winter storms as well. But that's not the case.
