First Snow of the Season in Central New Jersey
The Associated Press reports that the first snowfall of the year has hit Central New Jersey as well as most of the Metropolitan New York area. Here in Mercer County, the grass was mostly covered by snow at 7:00am, but the streets and sidewalks were clear because of their tendency to retain heat.
It was nice to see snow this early in the season. In many years, snow does not fall in this area until mid to late December.
The forecast appears to have overstated the amount of snow that would accumulate. Whether that is because less precipitation fell, or the air temperature was higher than expected, it is a good development because so many people will be on the road today beginning their Thanksgiving travels.
