Readington, NJ Overview

Readington is not only the county’s largest township geographically, it was one of the first to be settled.  The community has retained much of its rural nature, with Whitehouse and Whitehouse Station providing the pleasures of small-town living.  The undeniable influence of three major highways has made this area prime territory for industrial and corporate office complexes, including the world headquarters for Merck & Company.  Local retail facilities are expanded by Flemington’s many outlets.  Readington hosts the annual New Jersey Festival of Ballooning at Solberg-Hunterdon airport and Deer Path Park, where the Hunterdon County YMCA is located.

Climate and Weather

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
