BOUND BROOK - The weather across the Garden State has been abnormally warm the past few weeks.
With temperatures so far this December reaching into the 50s and 60s, many businesses that make their money selling winter gear have noticed a decline in sales.
“Our sales are down about 30 percent,” says Ted Wyrwa, of Fords Lawnmowers.

Wyrwa says that his showroom is stocked full of snowblowers. No one is buying them because there hasn’t been any snow this year.
In Bound Brook, Efinger’s Sporting Goods is also stocked full of warm parkas and snowboarding equipment.
“The weather, I wouldn’t say it’s not cooperating, but it’s giving you a different kind of feel,” says Eric Sianfrone, who works at the store.
Sianfrone says that items like fleeces and light-weight clothing are selling more.
This weekend is expected to see record-breaking temperatures in the 60s.
