A super wolf blood moon coincided with a lunar eclipse on Sunday night to turn the moon shades of red. The very dry, cold airmass made for a dark sky, turning all focus to the Earth's satellite. 

The "super" part of the moon comes from the larger appearance, the "blood" part of the moon comes from the reddish color due to the lunar eclipse and the "wolf" part comes from the name of the first January full moon. Called the blood.

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.
