What’s The Warmest November Day In Monmouth History?
We all know the past few days have been some warm, amazing gorgeous November days here at the Jersey Shore, and we want them to stay forever. Of course, they won't.
But while they lasted, we soaked them in and heard about places in the Garden State that were breaking records for the high daily temperature. Nothing else is normal in 2020, so why should November weather be any different?
Our Chief Meteorologist Dan Zarrow says we shattered records around the state all weekend long with temperatures in the 70's and even in the 80's in some spots. It makes you wonder just how hot it's gotten in the Garden state this time of year.
We started to wonder what the hottest November temperature ever recorded in Monmouth County was. So we reached out to our friends at the Office of the New Jersey State Climatologist for the official answer.
We know the average temperatures around here in November are much colder than we've been experiencing. As a matter of fact, the normal high temperature in Monmouth County is historically 50 degrees for a daytime high and 38 degrees for a daytime low according to WeatherSpark.
So, the highest temperature ever recorded in November in Monmouth County is 83 degrees, reached on the 1st and 2nd of November in 1950, at the Freehold and Long Branch weather stations, according to our friends at the NJOSC. That's a number we didn't approach this week, but we are certainly not complaining.
The high temp record for November in Toms River sits at 85 degrees on November 3, 1982.
But, and you knew there was a but, this warmth is short lived. We will have temperatures near 70 today and tomorrow, but then you can expect the temperatures to drop back to more normal temperatures by the weekend. We knew it couldn't last forever.
