Learn the secret behind the green screen and take home your own weather forecast. I will be going On the Road to Cape May County Library in Middle Township on Friday, March 9, from noon to 7 p.m. for New Jersey Makers' Day.

New Jersey Makers' Day shows off the maker culture in the state, focusing on science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, activities. Community members of all ages are invited to join in for an exciting day. New Jersey Makers Day allows communities to share hands-on programming opportunities, demonstrations, and the expertise of people who make, create and develop in their own backyard.

It will not be just me there, either.The Wireless Aircraft Sport Pilots, Cellular Tracking Technologies and Cape May County Technical Schools will be on hand also. You can play in the library's virtual reality center, drive a robot, fly a drone and much more.

On the Road will take us to all 63 municipalities we cover at The Press of Atlantic City. We will bring the weather to your community's events, schools and best scenic spots. All the while, we uncover why each place is a "South Jersey Special."

By using #MartuccisMap on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, you can see each step, drive and leg of the journey. Want your place to be featured "On the Road"? Drop me a note there, too!

This is my first newspaper but not my first forecast for NJ. I graduated with a B.S. in Meteorology from Rutgers. Two TV internships gave me a taste for the newsroom. Then, after nearly 4 years in private NJ weather, I'm forecasting South Jersey for you.
