    Atlantic City

    On February 12, 1979, Atlantic City was at its coldest temperature at -11 degrees. It probably wasn’t the best time to be out walking the world famous boardwalk!

  • 3

    Mays Landing

    There was definitely little traffic passing through during some of the colder months in 1950. This was when Mays Landing fell to a freezing -7 degrees! Yikes!

    There was no way anyone was on the Wildwood boardwalk during the winter months of 1994. The Wildwood area recorded its lowest temperature ever at -1 degree.

  • 5

    Cape May

    For Cape May, the lowest temperature was 2 degrees in February 1979, which is historically the lowest temperature. This even beat the recent snowstorm of February 2015 for the title of coldest February ever!
