The Climate of New Jersey

New Jersey is located about halfway between the Equator and the North Pole, on the eastern coast of the United States. Its geographic location results in the State being influenced by wet, dry, hot, and cold airstreams, making for daily weather that is highly variable.

The Garden State is 166 miles long from north to south, and its greatest width is about 65 miles. While this may not seem too large, there is a marked difference in climate between Cape May in the south and the Kittatinny Mountains of northwestern New Jersey.
