Here is video footage of a snowstorm that occurred on Saturday, February 21, 2015. The snow developed during the course of the morning in Northern Middlesex County, and started out as a wet snow that only accumulated on grassy surfaces. However, as the day progressed, and the temperatures fell, the snow began to accumulate on the pavement. When it was all said and done, snowfall amounts ended up only being between 2.5 and 4.0 inches in Middlesex County including 3 at GWC in South Plainfield. However, areas to the south such as Neptune in Monmouth County (6.0 inches), Princeton (6.0 inches) in Mercer County, Bordentown in Burlington County (6.6 inches) and Haddon Heights in Camden County (6.5 inches) received over 6 inches. The weather still created havoc by postponing several Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament Girls Quarterfinals at New Brunswick High School.
Here is footage of an overnight snowstorm tapering off to flurries on Tuesday morning, February 17, 2015.

The heaviest snowfall fell in Cape May County, where 7.0 inches fell in Cape May. The storm still made an impact in Middlesex County with a number of schools closed, which forced the postponement of a number of Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament games.
Here is video footage of the Valentine’s Day Snowstorm from around several different locations in the Garden State. The footage was a mixture of iPhone 5 and car cam video. This snowstorm was another small one, but it did pack quite a wallop as forecasted during the late night and overnight hours. The storm did pick up in intensity after 10:00 PM as projected. The heaviest snowfall that I encountered on the way home was getting on Route 1 South from the Garden State Parkway, and on Route 287 North. When I got up on both of those exits, the snowfall intensity went up another level.
Here is video footage of some snow that fell at Greg’s Weather Center in South Plainfield on February 12th. On this day, there was a small accumulation, but what was fascinating about this snow was how it went from some flurries to fat flakes of snow. You had to go west into Pennsylvania to find some measurable snowfall for this one.

Here is footage from the recent winter storm that brought a mixed bag of precipitation to Northern Middlesex County as well as the rest of the Garden State on the first Monday in February 2015. The storm began as snow on Sunday night, but during the early morning hours, temperatures rose, and the snow changed to freezing rain, and then all rain. By Monday afternoon though, temperatures dramatically dropped causing the slush and ponding on the roads to freeze. On top of that, the storm finished with a flourish as snow fell again with rates as high as 4 inches per hour reported.
Here is car cam footage of the beginnings of another major snowstorm to affect Northwestern Middlesex County on the first day of February, 2015.
