Meteorologist Joe Martucci, Mayor John Armstrong and Jim Eberwine

From left to right, John Armstrong, Mayor of Absecon, Meteorologist Joe Martucci and Jim Eberwine, Retired National Weather Service forecaster and Absecon emergency manager.

Learn about the bayside community of Absecon as I chat with Mayor John Armstrong, who says that the water is the top prize for this town.

I also interview fellow meteorologist Jim Eberwine, long time resident of Absecon. Jim is a retired National Weather Service forecaster and Absecon emergency manager who is an expert at the corner of weather and preparedness. After the forecast, get the seven day forecast from Joe and Jim. (Weather starts at 9:40)


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.
