Gusty winds to usher in Arctic air later today

    An Arctic front will plunge down across the Jersey Shore later today, delivering a shot of gusty winds and bitterly cold temperatures. 

    By tomorrow morning, the National Weather Service forecasts wind chill values to be at or below zero for the area. 

    The biting wind chill values are due to the combination of the gusty winds and arriving cold.

    Northwest winds at 20 to 30 miles per hour might gust up to 50 miles per hour, according to a Wind Advisory issued by the National Weather Service.

    The strong winds could lead to difficult travel conditions and scattered tree and power line damage, and residents should secure lightweight outdoor objects, advisory advises.
