We all like to think we are out of the woods this time of year in New Jersey, but March doesn't mean the end of the snow season. Not by a long shot.

We checked in the record books to see how much snow New Jersey towns have gotten over the years on St. Patrick's Day, and some of the totals are pretty impressive.

Don't Be Surprised By March Snow

Several towns have been chosen from the amazing weather database found at the Office of the New Jersey State Climatologist, and we wanted to share them with you.

We've Had Some Nasty March Snowstorms

Three of the six towns chosen show their highest March 17th snow total from the same storm, a nasty late-season storm in 1967.

It's no surprise that the highest totals came out of Sussex, and the lowest totals from these towns were in Atlantic City.

For the record, Weather.com extended forecasts for Newark are calling for temperatures to be in the 50s on St. Patrick's Day this year. We hope that holds up.
