Attention Residents of CA and NJ

Hello! Jeez, it's been a long time since I've been on here. How is everyone?

Now that I'm back, I have to ask y'all a favor. As you know, I am currently working on a three-part fanfiction series. The first one is set in New Jersey (1994/1995 with the possibility of flashbacks), the second in both California and New Jersey (2005-2007), and the third mainly in California (don't worry too much about the year; it hasn't happened yet). I have never been to either of these states, so I just need some help with the setting. Mainly, the weather.

What is the weather like in New Jersey during winter, spring, summer, and autumn? How would you describe the aesthetic during these seasons?

What is the weather like in California during winter, spring, summer, and autumn? How would you describe the aesthetic during these seasons?

Any description of weather conditions in both states would be helpful as well (Storms, sunny, snow, etc) Some slang/sayings, etc unique to each state would also be helpful.

If you currently live, or have lived there in the past, would you message me with some information? That would be greatly appreciated. I can imagine as much as I like, but those with experience would my stories more realistic.

Thank you!

Always with love,

Show Stopper

P.S. If you happen to be on tumblr, you may have seen a similar post under the username "god-im-good-at-thesingamajig". That is because that was my url. I have changed it since then.
