Still smoky, still cool: June 2023 Weather Roundup (with special guest Jim Eberwine)

Still smoky, still cool: June 2023 Weather Roundup (with special guest Jim Eberwine)
It was all about the smoke. The worst air quality to hit South Jersey in decades came in June, as the Canadian wildfires continue to blow smoke our way for the second month in a row. More than likely, the smoke contributed to June being another below average month. It was the first time in about 15 years that the region had a below average May and June. On the rain side of things, it was dry. So much so, parts of Cumberland, Atlantic and Cape May County slipped back into drought.  Meteorologist Joe Martucci is joined by his other weather dad, Jim Eberwine, to round up June. With New Jersey State Climatologist Dr. Dave Robinson away in Europe, Joe turned to Jim for his legendary South Jersey weather knowledge.  Jim is a retired Meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Mount Holly. However, he currently serves as the Emergency Management Coordinator in Absecon, a teacher at multiple South Jersey schools and is the Grand Marshall of the Smithville Fourth of July Parade.  Today's topics Wildfire smokeJune's temperaturesSlipping back into droughtJune's rainfallHurricane season update ABOUT SOMETHING IN THE AIR Take a look back at the month of weather that was in South Jersey!

The wettest AND warmest April in spots | April 2023 Weather Roundup
Record rain, record warmth, record tornadoes. April was spring pumped up to the max in South Jersey. The tornadoes on April 1st was a tie the state's biggest one day outbreak, with seven, including one in Hamilton Township, Atlantic County. Just ten days later, summer time heat sizzled everywhere from the bridges to the beaches. Records highs were set along the way and 80s even came to Atlantic City for two consecutive days, the first time's that happened since 1976. The month then ended with a very wet bang. Inches of rain from a pair of storms took monthly rainfall totals from well below average to near the top of the charts. Millville's rainfall was even record breaking.  Join the guys, Meteorologist Joe Martucci and Dr. Dave Robinson, May 13th birthday buddies on their birthday month, in the April 2023 Weather Roundup.  ABOUT SOMETHING IN THE AIR Take a look back at the month of weather that was in South Jersey!

It was one of the warmest on record with only two days of measurable snow. Both were under an inch, though. New Jersey State Climatologist Dr. Dave Robinson and Joe Martucci have a jam-packed half hour for you in this episode! Topics: Record snowless winter, February's mild temperatures, a dry February, wildfire update, winter's temperatures.

Recapping October's 6 day nor'easter, cool temps | Something in the Air podcast
Nov 2 2022
Recapping October's 6 day nor'easter, cool temps | Something in the Air podcast
For the first time since January, we had a month with below average temperatures in October. Atlantic City International Airport wound up 1.2 degrees below average, while Sen. Frank S. Farley Marina wound up 1 degree below. This was our coolest October since 2015. Much of that had to do with the first 10 days of the month. 50s and 60s were common when average highs were around 70 degrees. The chilly air was due to a six day long nor'easter. Wind, coastal flooding, locally major beach erosion and record rain fell. Daily rainfall records were broken on Oct. 2 and 3 for the airport (3.01 and 1.57 inches, respectively) and the marina (4.02 and 1.62 inches, respectively). Meanwhile, Millville saw record rainfall on Oct. 3. That led to October being the fourth wettest month in record history for both the airport and the marina. Records date back to 1943 at the airport and, more impressively, 1873 at the marina. The rain put an end to the drought in most of South Jersey. As of the start of the month, only southern Cape May County was still in drought. Meteorologist Joe Martucci and Dave Robinson, the New Jersey State Climatologist get together for their monthly chat about the weather that was. Stay until the end to get Dave's thoughts on the winter ahead and how you can be a part of the nation's largest network of volunteer weather observers.Subscribe and get full weather access: http://www.pressofac.com/subscribeSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
