Jersey Shore Hurricane News contributor Roman Isaryk captured this scene earlier today in Little Egg Harbor, featuring snow flakes against an autumnal backdrop.
This is a reminder that for the third straight year, snow fell in New Jersey before mid-November.
Snowfall amounts today ranged from a trace at the Atlantic City Airport to just under a half-inch in Freehold, according to a Public Information Statement issued by the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly.
But does this mean that we’re going to experience a snowy winter?
Not necessarily, says NBC40 meteorologist Dan Skeldon.
“2011 saw virtually no snow during our warmest winter ever, and 2012 was a relatively easy winter as well,” he wrote on his Facebook page today.
How about 2013?
“Well time will tell,” Skeldon wrote. “Though I’d lean snowier.”
