Located in Central New Jersey, Old Bridge borders New York along the Raritan Bay. Residents can expect higher than average rain, average snowfall, and nearly 206 days of sun each year. Summers tend to be hot and slightly humid, and winters are cold with freezing temperatures, but sea breezes can help regulate some of these extreme temperatures.
