Meteorologists are tracking a winter storm.
It wasn’t a white Christmas, but it may be a white day-after-Christmas. At least for a little bit. Meteorologists from the National Weather Service in Mt. Holly are tracking an east coast storm and say there will be some snow and sleet this afternoon. However, right before the evening rush hour, that precipitation is supposed to change to rain, said Mark DeLisi, meteorologist. The rain could be heavy tonight, officials said. Wind will also be a factor. Gusts could hit 31 miles per hour today but average 13 to 20 mph. Tonight, we should feel an east wind of 16 to 25 mph, with gusts as high as 40 mph. After tonight, there could be up to two inches of precipitation. Tonight’s low will be in the mid- to upper-30s. Rain is likely Thursday …

But is it enough to play, sled, be stranded...even stick??
Don't go to bed early tonight, Cinnaminson. You might miss just the fourth time snowflakes have fallen from skies here and actually stuck on the ground for more than one hour. Rain will turn to snowfall around midnight and it could accumulate up to an inch, according to Anthony Gigi, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Mt. Holly. The rain should start around 10 p.m. this evening and switch over to snow a couple hours later. "And then, for tomorrow (Saturday) morning," Gigi said, "snow is likely, possibly mixed with rain." Gigi said another inch could accumulate. Two inches on the ground? Say it ain't so. Well, New Jeresy isn't alone. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration identified January 2012 as the fourth-…

I don't know what it's like where you are, but outside this local editor's window, it's snowing. It's not sticking of course, but it sure looks pretty. We wanted to ask our readers, do you want it to snow again this year? Let us know what you think in the comments.

It finally snowed! Local families grabbed their sleds and headed to Memorial Hill Saturday.
Well, we didn't think it would happen, but it finally snowed. This time last year, we were up to our ears. Okay, it was only a few inches, but it was enough for Cinnaminson families to put on their hats and gloves and head to Memorial Hill at Memorial Park—the much talked about, but now fully functional, all-purpose hill. And even though we spot patches of grass peaking out, the kids look like they are having a great time. Can anyone else believe the first somewhat significant snowfall came at the END of January this year?

Snow is in the forecast this weekend, but don't get your hopes up.
Could Cinnaminson get its first real dose of snow this weekend? (Forget the dusting that came and went at the end of October.) Well, sort of. Meteorologist Kristin Kline, with the National Weather Service in Mount Holly, said the area is under a winter weather advisory beginning at 1 a.m. Saturday. Snow is expected to start falling overnight between Friday and Saturday, with accumulations between 1-3 inches. The temperature will climb slightly during the day Saturday, changing the snow over to sleet and freezing rain. "Depending on how high temperatures get, it may switch over to rain completely," said Kline, though she added that Cinnaminson is in a zone where the precipitation is expected to stay frozen. All precipitation is expected …

Burlington County will be wet from rain, not snow, today and tomorrow.
Wet weather is coming our way this evening and there’s a 40 percent chance it will come before nighttime hits. “It’s pretty definite it’s going to be raining,” said Anthony Gigi, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Mt. Holly. At times, Gigi said, rain will be heavy tonight. Thursday, there is a chance of rain in the morning and the rest of the day should be okay, Gigi said. Highs today will be in the upper 40s while highs Thursday will be in the mid-50s. Is there a chance of snow this week? Not just yet, contrary to what neighbors up north might be experiencing. “Not with this system, no,” Gigi said.

An unseasonably warm winter thus far casts doubt on holiday snow hopes.
Wednesday, December 21, 2011
Take a cue from Irving Berlin and keep dreaming of a white Christmas, because that’s all you can do this year. If you trust the National Weather Service (and why wouldn’t you?), the best we can hope for is a wet Christmas. “It looks like for South Jersey we’re not expecting much more than rain right now (over the weekend),” said meteorologist Valerie Meola. Meola said the current forecast for Sunday calls for temperatures in the mid-30s to mid-40s, with about a 40 percent chance of rain. She said there’s a slight chance of a wintry mix overnight Saturday, “but it warms right back up … Right now we’re running much too warm (for snow).” No surprise there really. December 2011 has been somewhat unseasonably warm thus far, especially when …

Public Works urges residents to keep cars off the streets to expedite plowing.
An overnight snowstorm left about a foot of snow in the township this morning, closing schools and delaying openings all around town. According to the National Weather Service in Mt. Holly, nearby Moorestown's official snow count is 11.5 inches, while Maple Shade's is at 14. Cinnaminson is around the 12-inch mark, too. "The weather wasn’t what was predicted," Fred Turek, superintendent of public works in Cinnaminson said. "It was much worse. Caught us off guard a little bit." Plows in Cinnaminson hit the streets last night starting around 10 p.m. The county roads are plowed first, followed by main roads such as Pomona and Forklanding, and then into the neighborhoods. Turek, with a team of only 10 men, worked for about eight hours to do the…
