In an area where the average high temperature during the middle of summer sits in the mid-80s, it is the 100 degree mark that symbolizes a brutally hot day in South Jersey.

On 31 occasions between 1873 to 2019, triple digit heat make its mark.

There are six days that stand out from the rest of the pack, here is the highest heat in our area. 

Note that numbers are taken from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for either Atlantic City Marina or Atlantic City International Airport. 


This is my first newspaper but not my first forecast for NJ. I graduated with a B.S. in Meteorology from Rutgers. Two TV internships gave me a taste for the newsroom. Then, after nearly 4 years in private NJ weather, I'm forecasting South Jersey for you.
