Weather history was made in New Jersey this weekend, with parts of the state experiencing record-breaking warmth for early December on Saturday and Sunday. The temperature peaked at 71 degrees at the Atlantic City airport on Saturday, according to the National Weather Service, breaking the previous record high of 67 degrees set in 1931. In Trenton, the high temperature reached 68 degrees on Saturday. That surpassed the previous record high of 67 degrees, which was also set in 1931. More than three dozen places across the eastern United States saw high temperatures that matched or exceeded previous records on Saturday, the National Weather Service said.
