State Climatologist Dave Robinson of Rutgers University says the Garden State’s summer climate lacked any excessive heat or cold, and was on the mild side… "It was a summer with quite a mixed bag of conditions, with the exception of the weekends, which were almost exclusively beautiful," Robinson said… Robinson says every weekend day was rain-free, from the beginning of July through Labor Day. He said New Jersey did not have an exceptionally warm summer, just as the past two years have not been exceptionally warm in the eastern U.S., when other parts of the world are experiencing intense heat… In fact, global climate watchers are saying 2015 is on track to go into the books as the warmest year on record for the planet earth. But not so here in the Garden State. According to Robinson, we were above average temperature-wise, in every month of the summer, but not excessively so.
