New Jersey has been experiencing crazy winter weather this season and people want to know whether or not the winter weather is over yet.
Meteorologist John Homenuk explains what New Jerseyan’s are in for with this week’s possible weather forecast.
“There’s energy in the top northeast of the United States and in the model for Wednesday’s upcoming snow storm showing the storm going out to sea with very minimal impact on our area,” Homenuk said.
According to the weather map models, Homenuk predicts that there will be virtually no precipitation. The predictions are made three-days in advance based off the energy currently residing in the Pacific Northwest. This is when the forecast models will initiate weather patterns and run processes and codes to determine conditions in specific areas. It then runs and displays what may possibly happen. Homenuk even touches upon the polar vortex.
“The polar vortex always exists. That’s something that we meteorologists have been trying to pound home. It is in eastern Canada and its colder air and its funneling around in Southeast Canada. Its further north than it was earlier this winter,” he said.
There is a lot of cold air up to our north but the concern is that any disturbance that comes to the south of it can tap into that cold air and produce snow. Meteorologist have their eyes on a parade of disturbances that are being tracked and watching them closely as them come off the coast. So while this week may be relatively milder than the Garden State is used to, that doesn’t mean that will be the case next week.
