After yesterday’s snowfall, Warning Coordinator Meteorologist for NOAA in Mount Holly Joe Miketta told NJTV News Managing Editor Mike Schneider that three to five inches are expected tomorrow, mostly in the southern half of the state.
Miketta said he was surprised by the high amount of snow yesterday and that it was in such a small, concentrated area.
“I don’t think there is any foretelling what will happen during the rest of the winter based on this past storm. We have another storm coming tomorrow and we do think that the heaviest snow bands are going to set up in the same area that they set up on yesterday and last night,” Miketta said.
He said that sometimes weather patterns have a memory, but he does not think that it is going to be a long-term memory that will extend through the winter.
“The system that is coming in tomorrow just doesn’t have much moisture to work with so there is an upper limit to how much snow can actually fall. We aren’t looking at high totals of snow. We are looking for the highest snowfall amount to be in the south and very possibly very near to where it happened yesterday,” Miketta said.
