Brr! The 5 Coldest Temperatures Ever Recorded In Atlantic City, NJ
So far this year, Atlantic County's gotten pretty lucky when it comes to the outside feels. Now, anyone that knows me will tell you that I'm always chilly, so you can't go off of anything I tell you in terms of temperature. I wear sweatpants in the studio in the middle of the summer. To be fair, it's always FREEZING in here regardless of the time of year.
This year has been kind to us in terms of winter temperatures here along the Jersey coastline (*knock on wood*). We've seen quite a few 50+ degree temperature days in January. I don't know about you, but I've now come to the point where I'm totally okay with not seeing any snow this year. I guess that means I'm all grown up now, but I wouldn't be upset doing without having to drive to work early in the morning trying to battle snowfall.
If these temperatures are any indications of what's to come, who knows if we'll see any snow accumulation this year. Judging by the coldest temperatures this area's ever seen, it's been a pretty warm start to winter here in Atlantic City this year.
We haven't seen below 0 degrees here in these parts of South Jersey for quite a few years now. It's looking like we won't see it this year either.
