Does it Snow in New Jersey?

If someone not from the Northeast region of the US were to ask, does it snow in New Jersey, the answer will inevitably be yes. How that answer is conveyed, however, will likely depend on whom you asked. While New Jersey ranks in the median of snowfall amounts each year (averaging 23.73 in. annually), it rarely gets the major snowfall totals as other states in nearby and neighboring regions.

Does it snow in New Jersey? Absolutely. New Jersey typically expects about 22 days of snowfall per year (22.15 days, to be exact). Although that is a far cry from a snowmageddon, New Jersey residents certainly expect snow every year and even a fairly significant winter storm or two. And despite having one of the lighter yearly snowfall accumulation totals, in a densely populated area like New Jersey, it doesn't take much snow to slow things down.

No, residents of New Jersey don't expect to get buried in snow all winter, but they are no strangers to snow either. So don't be surprised if someone from Vermont or Maine scoffs at the question as they get nearly 100 days of snow each year, but the answer is still yes, it does snow in New Jersey.
