The average Winter temperature in New Jersey is 33 degrees. This year in 2014-2015, we have experienced some weird unusual temperatures like 7 degrees; but that's okay because then comes Spring. Average Spring temperature is 50.6 degrees, not bad right! Summer days here are the best! Average temperature is cited to be 84 degrees Fahrenheit but usually the summer days are 90-97 degrees. Lastly, the average Fall temperature is 66 degrees which is quite accurate.

New Jersey is near the Atlantic Ocean. Large bodies of water hold in a lot of heat so the Atlantic Ocean makes the temperature milder. New Jersey receives 25-30 thunderstorms per year.
The average wind speed in New Jersey is about 80 miles per hour. Strong winds in NJ can cause power outages, weaken tree limbs, and cause trees to fall. So make sure your car isn't parked under a tree!
Climate is the behavior of the atmosphere for a long period of time. In NJ we have cold winters, and hot humid summers. The proximity to the Atlantic Ocean affects the climate by providing abundant moisture for gathering storm systems.
Sorry to say but New Jersey does receive some severe weather. The major severe type of weather that occurs in New Jersey is hurricanes. And NJ experiences some very harsh hurricanes! Hurricanes are caused by warm waters and moist air. Water vapor and high ocean temperatures are also causes of hurricanes. The year of 2012 certain areas of the United States experienced Hurricane Sandy. Sandy killed about 268 people from October 28, 2012 to November 30, 2012. The strong winds and heavy rain damaged peoples' homes, caused power outages, flooded rivers and streams, weakened tree limbs, and etc. In NYC loss estimates exceeded over $19 billion. Some ways we can prepare for emergencies like this is by developing an emergency kit, discussing a plan with your family, and knowing your surroundings.
