It's several months until summertime at the Jersey Shore.

We can still get excited knowing that hopefully, we are through the worst of the cold of winter here in New Jersey. We've had a cold one, I'm ready for the hot days ahead of us.

Recently, I was looking around and thinking, "Do we have a hottest day of the year here in Ocean County and at the Jersey Shore?" I never really thought about it and then I did a little bit of research and the answer is yes, we do.

What day of the summer is the hottest at the Jersey Shore?

According to, July 21st will be the hottest day of the summer. A couple of things I thought about, isn't August supposed to be the hottest month of the year? I remember growing up and thinking August is always so hot, not so much anymore.

July 21st, the temperature "should" be 86 here at the Jersey Shore and in Ocean County, according to this weather article. I looked at the temperatures for August and those temps for the summer of 2022 should be low 80s most days and high 70s.

The month of July looks to have the highest temps throughout the summer, with August coming close but not getting as warm as July. What surprised me, there are no real 90 degree days at the Jersey Shore. I guess with the shore breeze, it really does keep it cooler along the coast. Also, the month of July or August should not exceed a temperature of 94, all summer long. A little surprising to me.

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
