LISTEN: September 2018 Climate Review

Dave Robinson, the New Jersey State Climatologist, and I, talk about the record breaking heat in South Jersey during the month of September. Like August, it was all about the "low" temperatures, which smashed the previous record.

If it wasn't the heat, it was the sauna like conditions across the region. Robinson says it wasn't just the Gulf of Mexico that brought us that sticky weather, too. South Jersey wound up with the fifth wettest September on record.

Looking ahead, we also talk about the frost potential this month, as well as the Fall Foliage outlook.

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.
