In 1904, New Jersey Plunged Into An Arctic Freeze That Makes This Year’s Winter Look Downright Mild

Up until now, New Jersey has had a fairly warm winter. We haven’t seen much snow and many days have had highs in the upper 30s, 40s and even low 50s! The average January high sits around 39 degrees, depending on which part of the state you live in, but this week has been a bit colder. Highs are hitting just around freezing with lows around 19. Brr! But none of this compares to winter in 1904.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

So, let’s be grateful for the current temperatures. And remember, there are only 68 days left until spring. Soon after that, we’ll be back at the beach!
