The calendar says it’s still winter for another week and a half, but Mother Nature clearly doesn’t pay attention to calendars. During the past week, New Jersey’s weather jumped from winter to spring to summer, with a slew of temperature records getting smashed along the way. And forecasters say more records will be erased from the weather history books before the sun goes down on this very mild Thursday… For many places across New Jersey, including New Brunswick, Wednesday was the earliest day of the year that the temperature rose above 76 degrees, said New Jersey State Climatologist David Robinson at Rutgers University. Prior to this week, the latest reading of 76-degrees-plus in New Brunswick was in 1990, when the mercury hit 83 on March 14.
