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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

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!
