UPDATE: Many got that first taste of winter this morning as temperatures plummeted and light snow showers/flurries developed.
The much advertised Canadian cold front moved offshore, with a northwest flow in control.
Precipitation will taper from the NJ Turnpike to the southern coastline through the morning hours.
The only areas where the snow stuck was in the highest elevations (which the National Weather Service expected yesterday).
Temperatures remain slightly above freezing throughout the state, and where there’s a breeze (especially near the coast), it feels colder (wind chill).
We’ll be in the 40s today, with the warmest temperatures in the coastal towns and coldest readings (perhaps upper 30s) in the highest elevations.
But, remember, it’ll feel colder when the northwest wind gusts.
There will be some clearing from northwest to southeast this afternoon.
For tonight, breezy and very cold, with temperatures in the 20s inland and low 30s at the coast.
Sunny and remaining cold tomorrow. High temperatures will be in the low to mid 40s.
After another cold night, temperatures will begin to moderate Thursday, with readings in 50s lasting through the weekend.
It’ll be mainly sunny each day, with a chance of a shower on Sunday.
