Rutgers Snow Expert Available to Discuss Winter Storm in N.J.


Expert Pitch

Newswise — New Brunswick, N.J. (Dec. 2, 2019) –  Rutgers University–New Brunswick snow expert David A. Robinson is available for interviews on the winter storm unfolding in New Jersey today.

Up to 8 inches of snow are expected in the Garden State, according to the National Weather Service Mount Holly Office.

As is often the case, the heaviest amounts are expected in the northwestern part of the state, with little forecast for the far south, said Robinson, the New Jersey State Climatologist and a distinguished professor in the Department of Geography in the School of Arts and Sciences.

“Ten inches of snow in early December would be rather unusual even in northwestern New Jersey but not unprecedented,” Robinson said. “We had 5 inches in New Brunswick on Nov. 15, 2018, so something of that magnitude in central NJ wouldn’t be tremendously unusual.”

Robinson, who oversees the Rutgers NJ Weather Network and helps coordinate the New Jersey Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network, is available to comment at david.robinson@rutgers.edu.
