Update: We have our guests lined up! You can see who they are, below. 

The middle of winter, especially with no glistening white snow on the ground, might get us down. You might be thinking of planning a summer vacation, or those warm days where you can hang outside. For this week's On the Road, we are going to bring one favorite South Jersey pastime to the forecast, boating! We are heading to Boat World Marina in Maurice River for this week's On the Road.

On the Road will take us to all 63 towns that 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 will uncover why each place is a "South Jersey Special". 

Thanks to Press Graphics Artist Krishna Mathis and developer Mike DellaVecchia, you can learn about the towns as we go on our interactive page. Watch where "On the Road" has ventured to, find upcoming stops and view our real estate resource center, Where to Live.

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.
