Califon, NJ Overview

The small borough of Califon, located along the Raritan River, features many homes on the state's historic register.  It is a charming Victorian Village where the houses are marked with the names of the builders and their dates of establishment rather than with street numbers.  Although famous for trout fishing, Califon does not allow fishing from one of the few remaining 19th century wrought-iron truss bridges in the heart of the village.  Califon borders Lebanon Township and Tewksbury Township.

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.
