Do you know what was the coldest day ever in New Jersey?

The coldest day ever in the Garden State was recorded on January 5th, 1904. It was on that day that the temperature in River Vale (Bergen County) dropped to a frigid -34 below zero, which makes it the official coldest day ever recorded in New Jersey.

The coldest temperature recorded here in the United States is - 80 below zero in Prospect Creek, Alaska on January 23rd, 1971.

So keep that in mind when temperatures dip this week, it's a heat wave compared to that day in 1904!
