A Springtime Polar Vortex Is Headed For New Jersey And Temperatures Will Plummet To A Record Breaking Low

Mother Nature can be unpredictable but, fortunately, New Jersey avoids most of her mood swings. We rarely have earthquakes, tornados, dust storms…but we do have the occasional 70-degree January day. We also have occasional snow in May. On May 9, 1977, there was an inch of snow in Sussex County. On May 10, 1954, there was half an inch of snow in Morris County.

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/

Places like Maine will likely see much worse, so we consider ourselves lucky. Even still, it’s likely we will set new low temperature records for May!
