When Will New Jersey Get Its First Snowfall of the Season?
Winter is coming, and in New Jersey, that means snow. Maybe you’re someone who dreads the snow or is excited about seeing the white stuff. Either way, you’re probably wondering, when will New Jersey get its first snowfall of the season? Well, here are the stats and probabilities on when to expect that winter weather to arrive.
Before we get to snow in our area, let’s look at one American city that’s never gotten snow. The Farmer’s Almanac has a story about the places in America that have never gotten cold enough to get any snow. “As the summer sun fades and chillier nights and mornings begin to creep onto the calendar, your thoughts might turn to that four-letter word which some of us love, and others love to hate: snow,” they state. “You may wonder: What are some cities, states, or countries where it has never snowed?”
Believe it or not, it’s never, ever snowed in Key West, Florida. “Not only has Key West never experienced snow, it’s never seen frost, ice, or sleet either,” the article states. “That’s because Florida’s low latitude and low elevation hinder temperatures from getting cold enough for snow to fall, let alone accumulate on the ground.” Lucky Key West.

Now, onto our state. According to Weather.com, the average first snowfall of the year arrives around Dec. 21 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Also, the city gets around 15.6 inches of snow each season. They do note that, “October is typically the month’s first snow in the mountains of northern New England, the Adirondacks, and the higher peaks of northwest Pennsylvania and the central Appalachians. Most of the rest of the interior Northeast joins in during November, while the I-95 corridor from Providence, Rhode Island, to Virginia typically waits until December to see their first accumulating snowfall of the season.” Find the full story here.
